The Five Pillar learning system — online.
Designed to focus on the student, the community and the planet, MUSE Virtual’s lessons and activities revolve around a unique system — Passion-Based Learning, Academics, Communication, Self-Efficacy and Sustainability. Learn more about The Five Pillars.

Academic focus in a virtual environment.
Academics are at the forefront of a MUSE Virtual education. Teachers are provided with curriculum guides detailing the standards of the academic disciplines per grade level. These resources are diverse and can change year-to-year to better suit the needs of students.

Assessments, grading and matriculation.
Students are assessed via Blueprints, not report cards. Narratives are written by the teachers — along with grade-specific academic standards, goals, and achievements set by the students. Students are assessed across all Five Pillars. Students are prepared at each grade level to matriculate to the next grade.

Advising and college counseling.
In ​all​ levels of our course options we have opportunities for students to ask questions, collaborate and interface with both teachers and advisors to help navigate their learning. High school students will meet with a college counselor in order to prepare them for Higher Education and the application process.
