Academics at Cascade Virtual Option (VO)

Cascade Virtual Option Course Catalog for 2023-24

Grades 6-12

Students in grades 6-12 learn through an entirely asynchronous, pre-recorded learning experience offered through Imagine Edgenuity Learning, an online learning platform.

Seattle Public Schools (SPS) Academic Intervention Specialists (mentors) work with every 6-12 student to create and monitor progress in student learning plans, meet weekly in live, remote sessions with students through Mentorship and help to coordinate other services and supports.

Cross enrollment to/from the Virtual Options and in-person schools/programs is possible with principal approval from both programs. Please reach out to your counselor to start this process.

As of Sept. 5, 2023 the Virtual Option does NOT have approved Art or CTE courses. High School students needing these courses for credit and/or graduation pathway will need to cross enroll to complete these requirements.

Imagine Edgenuity

The Imagine Edgenuity student experience helps students take greater ownership of their learning and effectively plan their work.

  • Animations and simulations provide explanation and modeling of key concepts
  • Digital highlighters and sticky notes help students organize information, ask questions, and record observations
  • Read-aloud and translation tools help English language learners and students with special needs
  • eNotes is a point of use digital notebook that allows students to record, synthesize, and organize their thinking
  • Dynamic glossary and a word look-up tool help students build their academic vocabulary, while transcripts and video captions enable students to follow along with the on-screen teacher
  • Point-of-use tools like a calculator, graphic organizers, and other tools
