Science is a difficult subject to master and tough to teach. VSU's unique learning program:

  • Solves the problem of lack of student attentiveness, boredom, and behavioral issues
  • Helps students with learning challenges, improving scores for all learning levels
  • Allows teachers to understand where each student is their mastery of each topic
  • Reduces teacher preparation time and the need to address different learning levels

VSU is the only online program with a full year of Biology classes aligned with key science objectives.
