“Where curiosity begins and learning never ends.”

The Virtual Academy of Salisbury Township (VAST) is a fully supported online educational alternative for students residing in the district in grades Kindergarten to 12th grade. VAST students are enrolled as Salisbury students and therefore have access to its schools and resources. VAST students will be able to participate in all the activities, extracurricular programs, and athletics that STSD offers to traditional Salisbury students, as compared to students enrolled in non-district supported cyber schools. VAST students will be provided with laptops and technology support from within the district, a school counselor to provide guidance academically and emotionally, and the ability to use any other school resources, including school libraries and guidance services. The program allows students to grow academically, with support services provided by the district, and to grow socially while learning from their home environment.

Why enroll in VAST?

The oversight of the VAST program is provided by district personnel. This maintains a personal connection between the home and school. District guidance counselors provide consultation support; supervision is provided by district administrators.
