Zero Clients & PCoIP Hardware Accelerator Scale
Audio-Video Learning for School-Wide Delivery

Village Green Virtual Charter School uniquely combines a brick-and-mortar environment with online instruction from PhD-level subject experts. Teachers focus on guiding the progress of each student with skill-gap intervention techniques. Each student learns at their own pace, and can fully explore areas of interest while completing subject.


"Village Green’s fully virtualized classrooms represent a game-changer for public education. Students at Village Green are moving through curriculum faster, fully exploring subject matter, and achieving high rates of academic proficiency when compared to their performance in their former schools. Other educators are watching this blended-learning charter school with interest."
