The Collaborative Diploma Program provides students an opportunity to study full-time online to demonstrate mastery for their high school of record graduation requirements with the option of pursuing areas of concentration in a select field of study. Typical Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs) include travel, athletic training, research, mentor-ships, and other expanded learning opportunities supported by a Vermont high school and the Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative (VTVLC). A majority of services are provided by the school of record while coursework is overseen by VTVLC. A blend of student services and supports are provided through collaboration between these two organizations.

Currently, South Burlington High School and Enosburg High School are participating in the Collaborative Diploma Program with VTVLC.

Guidelines

  • Priority enrollment allows two students per tuition town.
  • Acceptance of students for enrollment is based upon receipt of the first two completed applications meeting all program requirements per town.
  • Additional students may be eligible based on availability with permission.
  • Priority will be given to juniors and seniors.
  • Students can request up to 11 enrollments, or the equivalent of 5.5 credits per school year (inclusive of summer). This can be a combination of traditional and/or on demand enrollments.
  • All students must demonstrate prior success with completing course work online. If the student has not had prior experience in an online course, they will be required to take a course during the summer months to show success prior to the start of the fall semester.
