The Grove Virtual Academy

Rocket LogoRocket Academy is a partnership between Berne Union High School and Pearson Online & Blended Learning which allows Berne Union students in grades 7-12 to take virtual classes outside of Berne Union's own classrooms. Students can choose from a wide variety of subjects, such as math, language arts, science, social studies, world languages, arts, health, business, technology, or even career-specific courses. Each course is designed to be finished in a semester or less; high school courses are worth 1//2 credit and often provide positive impact on a student's GPA. Middle school classes are worth MS credit; each prepare students for independent learning and provide a head start on high school. Online teachers from Pearson directly teach and communicate with students throughout their courses, while our own Mrs Helt provides coaching and progress-monitoring on a local level to help each student achieve success. Rocket Academy grows each year: In 2020-2021, we can offer our greatest variety of courses ever, on a brand-new, more user-friendly platform. Interested in Rocket Academy?
