WeLearn Virtual Academy
Cultivate your future skills with our innovative learning platform today!
The WeLearn Virtual Academy, like our standard WeLearn Academy program [link], combines a rigorous accredited online academic program with personalized mentoring, deep learning courses focused on future skills, and standards-aligned, multi-disciplinary Project Based Learning (PBL) to form a comprehensive education system that we call WeLearn Virtual Academy. It is a highly personalized program where each student, together with WeLearn personalized learning experts and the student’s parents, will design a Personal Learning Pathway unique to that student’s goals and passions.
The main difference between this and WeLearn Academy is that virtual students will be following a virtual PBL model, rather than coming to a WeLearn innovation center to do their PBL in-person, and will receive virtual mentoring rather in person mentoring.
Academic: A Fully US or UK Accredited Online Academic Program
For our core academic program WeLearn recommends that students start with Acellus Academy, a top ranked, accredited US online program that relies on artificial intelligence and cutting-edge technology to deliver a highly personalized and progressive learning experience.
As students progress through their personal learning pathways, we can supplement their Acellus coursework with courses from other top-ranked online providers to ensure their program is truly personalized.
There are many excellent accredited online high school programs to choose from, following both US and UK curricula, including top schools like Stanford University Online High School, Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, Northwestern University Center for Talent Development and US public universities, such as the University of Missouri, Texas A&M, and many others. WeLearn has access to this vast array of courses through our platform at www.welearn.org
Students graduating from WeLearn Academy would receive a fully accredited and globally recognized diploma from Acellus Academy or other high school chosen in the students personalized learning pathway.
Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) is a key component of WeLearn Academy that brings learning to life. It creates a powerful educational experience that engages young learners to solve real global problems that they will face in the future. It allows students to acquire deep knowledge in a meaningful way and cultivates relevant future skills as critical thinkers and problem solvers, entrepreneurs, engineers and designers, technologists, leaders and team members.
Our PBL is multi-disciplinary, covering multiple subject areas in each project like Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM), Robotics, History, Economics, and Social Sciences. After completing each PBL module, our students will add their accomplishments, in the form of photos, write-ups, presentations, and WeLearn Digital PBL Certificates, to their digital portfolios, which will greatly assist each student in creating a unique portfolio for university admissions.
Acquiring Future Skills, both hard and soft, is the third key component of WeLearn Academy. For a detailed description of why future skills are important and which future skills are emphasized by WeLearn
WeLearn Academy students, both virtual and center-based, acquire future skills in our specific academy classes, specialized online courses or « Electives » (coding, robotics, etc) [link], and through our PBL. All our PBL curricula are designed to ensure that our students not only acquire key future skills but also learn how to apply those future skills to real world problems.
Virtual Personalized Mentoring
All of the above programs need to be coordinated and tracked. Each student benefits from assistance and advice in completing their weekly goals and understanding the importance of what they’re learning to achieving their long-term goals.
Plus, especially with online learning, it’s good to have a time each week to check in with someone and discuss the learner’s progress, experience, and any difficulties that may be taking place, be they academic, project-based, or interpersonal.
Our Learning Coaches
At WeLearn Virtual Academy, students will be closely monitored and motivated by our highly qualified and experienced educators who share a passion for working with our learners to ensure a truly future-relevant education.

Admission to WeLearn Virtual Academy begins with a free initial consultation (virtual or in person) with our Director of Personalized Learning. During the initial consultation, learners and families get a chance to discuss their goals, both short-term and long-term, and receive advice on the possible paths they can take to achieve them. This is a chance for students and their families to get to know WeLearn and see if it is a good fit for their needs. Once all questions have been answered, assessments and an implementation session can be scheduled to begin moving forward.
Tuition for our Virtual program is the same as our blended WeLearn Academy Program. This tuition includes all of our four key pillars, but not the add-on items. For the core Academic program, the tuition includes a full course load from Acellus Academy but may not include courses from other schools depending on the costs of those courses in relation to Acellus Academy. Please clink the link for our Tuition schedule.
How it works
WeLearn uses assessments, transcripts, extracurricular activities, and consultations to ensure the initial course placements are at a level that matches the student’s abilities and interests.
Personalized Learning Plan
Together with the student and family, we develop a Personalised Learning Plan that identifies a sequence of learning milestones that will allow your student to master their curriculum and the seven future skills.
Students apply the knowledge and skills gained from conventional learning in a hands-on environment though creative projects and independent research to solve real world challenges.
