Virtual Academy course offerings would be an asset to homeschool groups, meanwhile, as a way to fill in gaps in curriculum or to offer additional electives, Roebke said.
"Homeschool parents could sign up their students for a class -- math, history, Bible, science, etc. -- directly through us ... to enhance their current homeschool curriculum," Roebke said.
Virtual Academy could be useful to churches, she added, because adult Sunday School classes, small groups or youth groups could enroll in courses.
"It may be something where they could either do it individually online and meet back together in their Sunday School class or small group and discuss it, or they could offer it in-house where the church actually has computers and they can come together and work on the course," Roebke said.
"It's something the church could offer new members, new Christians or people who are starving for more information about the Bible and understanding it. They can offer this as something to help people learn more."
