Canyons Virtual High School (CVHS) is a year-round, online program dedicated to serving students within the Canyons School District, and elsewhere throughout the state of Utah. During the 2017-18 school year, students may take up to six (6) full credits of online courses as part of their complete high school schedule. In some cases, participating students may be asked to drop one or more traditional courses to “make room” for an online course in the student’s already-full schedule.
|Mission Statement: Provide personalized, flexible, and engaging online learning opportunities to help students throughout Utah succeed and prepare for college and career.|
What curriculum does CVHS use?
For most of its courses, CVHS uses Pearson's GradPoint, from within the Brainhoney LMS. Additionally, an increasing number of courses are also being offered from within Canvas. CVHS courses in Gradpoint and Canvas provide easy-to-use and comprehensive online learning opportunities that help students to develop the skills they need to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
Additionally, our courses give students the power to truly personalize learning with exceptional curriculum aligned to Utah State and Common Core Standards, and are built following instructional design best practices that incorporate video, live and virtual labs, interactive activities, immediate feedback, and assessments to ensure mastery and authentic work. Highly qualified Canyons District teachers provide feedback and academic support via email and telephone, as well as face-to-face and virtual meetings.
