Principal's Message

Welcome to the El Rancho Unified School District Virtual Learning Academy. I am excited and grateful that you are here! We have a great staff of educators and secretary. Together, we will ensure your students’ success during their participation in the Virtual Learning Academy. We create safe spaces where students are comfortable expressing themselves, encourage them to do their best, and guide them to reach their full academic potential. The Virtual Learning Academy is constantly striving to support students during their participation in this program.


With a focus on mental health and wellness, as well as inclusion and access for all, we believe in educating the whole student, academically, socially, and emotionally, with understanding of the importance in providing a strong foundation for future development.  Understanding the changes our students have seen in the past few years, we commit to supporting them in all areas. Our goal is to send our students forward with the skills necessary to become responsible, productive adults of tomorrow. Students in the Virtual Learning Academy are given opportunities to develop their skills to be collaborative, creative, and innovative.


We look forward to a phenomenal 2023-2024 school year.  We are excited to welcome all students. I’d like to encourage families to contact our office at any time with questions or concerns.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can assist you in any way. I’m committed to working with our school community to continue our program’s tradition of excellence.

Mrs. Viridiana Sierra
