Become more involved in your child’s education. Leavenworth Virtual School (LVS) enables you to educate at home using the time-tested, classic Calvert curriculum. A blended approach, the Calvert curriculum combines both traditional textbooks and lesson manuals with online learning. By providing quality curriculum and certified support staff, LVS works in partnership with parents who choose to act as their child’s primary teacher. A fully accredited program within Leavenworth Public School District 453, LVS provides a successful alternative to traditional education for children who are homeschooled or looking for other educational options. It is open to all Kansas students.
