No. Virtual Blackboard enrollment is year-long and your student can begin anytime after enrollment.
How long are the courses?
The courses are set at an individual pace according to the student and parent's schedule. We do encourage the student to stay current on all assignments so they can keep up or stay ahead of their secular classmates.
Does Virtual Blackboard online program comply with State Law?
Yes. However, we encourage all parents to know their rights according to the state they abide. Each state have different rules although homeschooling is legal in all the United States and the Supreme Court considers homeschooling to be a fundamental right under the Court's concept of liberty. While this precedent does seem to favor educational choice, that choice is conditional on states setting standards specific to homeschooling.
