Instructor selection, student interest, and preferences of community colleges may affect course offerings. All new course offerings are subject to change
• Four community colleges support SVETN and Elite courses; therefore, students can earn college credits with each course! These colleges are: VHCC, MECC, SVCC, and WCC.
• Asynchronous courses can be taken at any time during the school day.
• More and more often, colleges and universities are using distance learning as a way to deliver their courses to students. Participating in an asynchronous course while in high school will give students an experiential advantage.
• Virginia’s Early College Scholars program requires students to complete at least 15 transferable college credits. Elite Learning provides a variety of courses to help accomplish this honorable task.
• Registering for classes is simple. Guidance counselors can register each student by visiting www.svetn.org. Follow the steps for Online Course Enrollment.
Elite Learning Inclement Weather Policy
Asynchronous online courses have many advantages over the traditional classroom. Among those advantages are the availability of the instructor, the opportunity to "attend" class from many locations, the flexibility of schedule, and no make-up days due to snow. To provide the required amount of “seat-time” for students, Elite Learning instructors will continue to present class material and require assignment submissions. When some schools are temporarily closed, it is necessary to require a continuation of assigned work even if students are absent from school due to weather. It is the responsibility of the student to access the class via Internet during this type of absence. Students without Internet access beyond school hours will need to discuss this with their instructor at the beginning of the semester.
