Objective One—Increase Financial Literacy of Students
SVETN’s Elite Learning students participating in Economics and Personal Finance will be exposed to financial literacy education. All high schools in Virginia face a new requirement to provide this course to all students before graduation.
With limited financial resources, it can be a challenge for small high schools to find adequate classroom space and instructors to meet this mandate. Elite Learning will offer the course for high school credit. Each course is designed to meet or exceed all Career and Technical Education competencies for Virginia Public Schools.
Objective Two—Maintain High Academic Standards
SVETN’s Elite Learning will maintain high academic standards of all students. Elite Learning students have historically experienced tremendous success academically. Over 96% of students have earned a “C” or higher average in their course with 65% of those students earning an “A” average. This is due in part to the one-on-one teaching approach supported by Elite Learning instructors. School counselors will be notified every three to four weeks of student grades. Instructors will contact counselors individually at any point if there is concern that a student is not exhibiting academic success. The goal is for all students to achieve a minimum grade of 70/C.
Objective Three—Ensure Content Meets Established Standards
SVETN’s Elite Learning will provide curriculum that meets or exceeds all Virginia Department of Education Career and Technical Education competencies and Standards of Learning.
