Choose Your Virtual Experience
Between the Lakes Virtual Academy is a K-8 public school, with the same accreditation and accountability as our local brick and mortar school. The difference is, we have the flexibility to teach students who may want to remain at home, attend school online, or in a blended format.
The Kiel eSchool Virtual Charter School serves students in grades 9-12. Kiel eSchool provides additional/alternative learning opportunities for students whose educational needs may be better met, in whole or in part, outside the traditional school setting.
