The Vertus approach is as unique as our students:



Each student is part of a small learning team of 16-18 students led by a full-time mentor and guide called a preceptor.  Preceptors have our students' backs 24/7/365.  They create a safe and supportive environment in which each young man has an adult who is responsible for his success. 



We combine high-tech, online learning with traditional classroom experiences meeting each student where he is academically and supporting him to accelerate his growth.  Our year round calendar provides more learning time so that students can meet all the requirements for graduation and prepare for college and careers. 

Team Rowe


Students explore our three virtues of courage, leadership, and responsibility in our daily character curriculum.  Weekly awards recognize academic achievement and character growth. Sports, field trips, extracurricular activities, college courses, and work opportunities help students understand the world and grow as leaders.
