Virtual High School

Home > Womens Justice > Virtual High School

The Virtual High School Program is a joint venture between the Cook County Sheriff’s Office and the Chicago Public Schools that allows incarcerated individuals between the ages of 17-21 an opportunity to take online classes while earning credits towards their high school diploma. Each online class is accredited and approved by Chicago Public Schools.

The goal of this comprehensive collaboration is to ensure that every student has the opportunity to graduate from high school by offering personalized re-entry options to students who have been disengaged from the school system.

Virtual learning students report daily, log onto their computer and start their coursework with the assistance of a classroom mentor. The coursework is completely online allowing virtual learning students to access their coursework from any computer with an internet connection and work at their own pace. Every student is assigned a content teacher for each course who can be contacted by email or telephone for individualized instruction.

Every virtual learning student has the potential to graduate from their home high school upon earning the required 24 credits for graduation. If the student is discharged from the Sheriff’s Women’s Justice Programs before completion, they are still able to continue their coursework through the department’s re-entry services.
