- Courses are 100% asynchronous. There is no daily or live instruction — students work independently at their own pace.
- Students can expect four lessons per week for 18 weeks. Lessons average about 30-45 minutes.
- Instructors work with students to address questions about course content, grades, and course expectations.
- Instruction is delivered using various methods, including videos, presentations, and course readings.
Upon completion of a course, students receive a transcript from Catholic Virtual which, as an accredited institution, can be submitted along with the Cardinal Gibbons transcript when applying to college.
Students earn .5 credit for each semester class.
AP Course testing
Students interested in taking the AP test for the AP course will have the option to register for the AP test in the fall for the May testing. AP Test Registration information can be found on the College Counseling: Standardized Testing Page. The College Board charges a fee to register for each test.
Upon enrollment, Catholic Virtual will contact students to schedule an orientation session to learn how to access and use their online system.
