IVS has been leading the online learning environment including serving as our state’s premier, consistent, and highest-quality virtual learning provider.
Through Illinois Virtual School, school districts, non-public schools and parents of home-schooled students can provide students with access to a wider range of course offerings, with the opportunity to develop their capacities as independent learners, and with increased time and opportunity to achieve because learning online is neither time nor place dependent.
IVS offers the following solutions to meet the needs of students:
- Original Credit/Full Service Courses
These high school level courses include curricular content that provides sufficient instruction, practice, and assessments for students to master skills and concepts. The courses are aligned to relevant learning standards and are recognized by the NCAA and College Board. Full Service courses cost $240 per semester course.
- Credit Recovery Courses
Our Credit Recovery courses are proficiency based and are intended for students in high school who failed the course and are retaking it to recover credit. Although the course content is aligned to relevant learning standards, Credit Recovery courses are not NCAA approved due to prescriptive design. Credit Recovery courses cost $95 per course.
- Middle School Courses
The Middle School Series includes Original Credit/Full Service and Learning (Credit) Recovery courses, as well as Bridge courses to help students prepare for the next grade level over the summer.
IVS utilizes the Quality Matter’s Standards for Course Design when creating and enhancing our online courses. Quality Matters (QM) is a national leader in quality assurance for online education. Select IVS courses have gone through the rigorous QM review process and have earned the QM certification.

Course Selection and Requests
IVS strongly recommends that students attending public or private schools work closely with their counselor to select appropriate IVS course(s). Students enrolled in a local public or private school must have their course request approved by the school representative. It is recommended that students enroll in only one course at a time if they are new to online learning.
