Bishop McDevitt High School partners with Virtual High School. Open to sophomores, juniors and seniors, and at no cost to the students (except AP and/or lab fees), VHS allows students to take classes online that McDevitt is not able to offer at the school. The VHS course catalog is comprised of over 150 electives from various disciplines including numerous STEM offerings such as Engineering and Biochemistry.
The VHS online program allows students to explore potential careers with classes ranging from Criminology and Forensic Science to Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Practical Law. VHS also offers 23 AP classes which greatly expands our AP offerings from the fourteen currently provided in house. Participation in the VHS program has the added benefit of exposing students to an online learning environment. This is essential as most colleges utilize this format for many of their courses as an extension of the traditional classroom setting. The VHS program has been incredibly successful and continues to grow each year.
