Edmentum, a leading provider of technology-driven individualized learning solutions, announces that EdOptions Academy, its fully accredited virtual school program, has recently been approved by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) Approved Multidivision Online Provider (AMOP) for the 2016–17 school year. The latest approval consists of 25 semester-length Plato Courseware courses offered through EdOptions Academy, bringing the total number of Edmentum courses approved to 196, which makes Edmentum the #1 online course provider in terms of total courses approved for the second straight year under the VDOE AMOP initiative.

Edmentum has made a strong commitment to exceeding Virginia state standards and expectations from the standpoint of content, technology, and accessibility.
