American High School, one of the pioneering online virtual school that has revolutionized online education in the United States and internationally with its online virtual school for grades K-12, is giving away 60 scholarships this year. According to the school management team, these scholarships will be given to students to participate in a Online Virtual Reality Science and/or History course using Virtual Reality (VR) and the VR Goggles. The students selected will be given their own VR Goggles to keep and will have access to a one semester course utilizing VR.
“We are happy to announce that we are offering 60 scholarships to deserving students to work in a new and innovative Virtual Reality environment in our Science and History courses,” says Dana Delane-Williams, the owner and founder of American High School. “These Online courses are aimed at making learning highly engaging and immersive. The school management team’s aim is to provide an authentic learning experience for the students who will be enrolled into the online VR courses.
According to the AHS Management team, students will work with a series of Science projects and labs during this online VR course. These may include dissection units involving frog, pig, dogfish, feline, squid, and starfish. Students will also take virtual field trips to visit places, such as the Triceratops Ranch.
According to the spokesperson, all online classes are aligned to the Common Core Standards. AHS aims to make learning engaging, interactive, and authentic for the students.
American High School’s online virtual History classes aim to generate a love for history in students by utilizing VR and AR (Augmented Reality) with an exhibit surrounding Civil Rights and other topics. Students will experience and learn about famous Civil Rights Activists from the 1700s to the 1900s in a new and powerful medium by bringing the students back in time, utilizing AR and VR.
Students will also explore exhibits of 12 luminaries throughout the online history course. They may include Dred Scott, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, George Washington Carver, Madam CJ Walker, Jesse Owens, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King Jr., and Ruby Bridges.
This program is provided through our partner, Educate & Elevate a Florida 501c3, a nonprofit focused on providing low-income students with access to high-quality educational and athletic scholarships.

American High School plans to launch a VR campus to make learning online more engaging and interesting, rather then simply memorizing and reading from textbooks.
