About Us

Deeper Learning Virtual Academy’s home is the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District. It is a tuition-free charter school serving grades K4-12 in a virtual setting, utilizing various digital tools to provide our school community with project-based learning (PBL) opportunities that nurture our deeper learning competencies. 

Our virtual program empowers students through PBL to sharpen their self-direction, collaboration, and communication using our digital technologies. DLVA students master academic content and develop the mindset necessary to keep them curious and engaged in order to live life on their own terms.

Each student receives a device to use for virtual instruction. Devices are age dependent and content delivery is tailored to the age appropriate device. 

Students engage with content through rigorous project based learning experiences. 

Periodic in-person days at Dottke PBL High School ensure that students foster a sense of community with their classmates. 

Our guaranteed and viable curriculum ensures all students are prepared for their personal next steps after high school.

Resident students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular opportunities within their neighborhood school.

Deeper Learning Virtual Academy students receive comparable supports to those of their in person peers.
