Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy (LAVCA) celebrated the opening the Baton Rouge Blended Learning Center, LAVCA’s third and largest blended learning center this week.
The Baton Rouge Blended Learning Center (BRBLC) is open to 6-12th grade students enrolled at LAVCA. The center allows for students to gain additional support with their lessons and the curriculum, while also engaging in a new environment with their peers.
“The learning center was created in order to empower students to have as many opportunities to be successful and thrive in their education as possible,” Kristy Davis, School Operations Manager, said. “The site offers students assistance from LAVCA teachers who are there four days a week from 9am to 3pm. Students can receive assistance with core course curriculum including English, Math, Science, and Social Studies.”
The BRBLC had a successful grand opening attended by LAVCA families, board members, teachers, the Head of School, the Regional Vice President and the District Superintendent. The ceremony included a small ribbon cutting followed by a series of speeches, including student testimonies.
“I do believe the student testimonials were the highlight of the ceremony,” Kristy said. “It was also a sincere reminder of why we are in the field of education.”
The BRBLC is expected to lay the groundwork for future learning centers.
