WHO WE ARE
The ASL Virtual Academy is the leader in online American Sign Language education. Our innovative classes teach students how to communicate in ASL and about American Deaf culture. We use a comprehensive curriculum that is aligned with the National Standards for Learning Languages. Students learn through engaging pre-recorded video lessons. We’ve designed fun and interactive activities to help students practice what they’re learning, with plenty of opportunities to demonstrate their skills! We use a variety of assessment tools to help measure students’ abilities and growth throughout the course, and provide a detailed grade report upon successful completion of the class. Students enrolled are typically taking ASL for credit for high school graduation and/or college admission.
ASL Virtual Academy is dedicated to further expand the growth and interest in American Sign Language to students all over the country. By leveraging the power of technology, we can provide high quality ASL classes and instruction to anyone with access to high speed internet. We want students to feel confident having a conversation in ASL with a Deaf person, and bring our passion for the language and teaching to our classroom, everyday. We strive to ignite a passion for learning in our students, by introducing them to a new language and new culture.
