The Department of Curriculum and Instruction supports teaching and learning by providing leadership and oversight in managing instructional programs, implementing appropriate and relevant curriculum, integrating technology and digital resources, creating a student-centered learning environment, and providing professional development opportunities.
Yvonne B. Miller High School has adopted a personalized learning approach to teaching our students. Each student is provided an instructional plan tailored to his unique experiences, needs, and educational goals. This “student-centric” model, which combines in-person and online learning, encourages students to actively participate in the planning and learning process, identify their learning challenges, problem-solve and advocate for their own needs.
Yvonne B. Miller High School uses the Edgenuity online learning platform to deliver all core content courses and selected elective and career and technical (CTE) courses. Edgenuity is designed to keep students engaged and learning at their own pace. It tracks students’ progress in real time, which allows teachers to read patterns of data and respond in a timely manner with strategies and interventions when students are faced with challenges.

Yvonne B. Miller High School offers various Virginia diploma options for our students. The links below will give you information on each diploma option and requirements.
The Individual Student Alternative Education Plan (ISAEP) offers an alternative for students at least 16 years old who are having difficulty finding success in a traditional classroom environment. This program offers an opportunity to work toward a General Education Development (GED®) credential while still enrolled in high school. Students must meet the criteria before being admitted into the program.
The General Education Development (GED®) Program is available to students at least 18 years old who have not yet earned a high school diploma. Students receive a combination of a computer-based study program (GED Academy), direct instruction, and appropriate resources to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills needed to pass the GED exam and earn a GED credential.
Graduation is one of the most memorable moments for our students and families at Yvonne B. Miller High School. We truly honor our students for their commitment to such a huge accomplishment even when faced with challenges or barriers. We admire our students for their hard work and determination, and we are proud to support them through their journey!
