“The Class of 2021 has overcome enormous obstacles as they conclude their high school experience,” said IAVA Head of School Steven Hoff. “That’s why it’s more important than ever that we celebrate their graduation. No matter where a student goes after graduation, they should know that our entire community is rooting for their success.”

IAVA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects and a host of electives, and attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers. IAVA also offers student clubs, field trips and social outings to foster a sense of school community, such as this week’s graduation celebration.
