The IVA offering goes beyond excellent Academics. The holistic experience manifests itself across five main pillars.
Five Pillars of IVA
IVA Global Online School is a world-class online school complete with an interactive 3D campus created for teaching and learning. Students and teachers represent their unique selves through an avatar that walks into school and takes up a seat in the various virtual spaces and classrooms. Awards ceremonies, talent shows, school assemblies and parent meetings feature strongly in our 1000-seater virtual auditorium.
At IVA Global Online School, we are more than the academic rigour found in subjects and assessments. As a school, we are a community with an active online social program and our students have the opportunity to hang out in our virtual home called “Isle of IVA”. IVA students propose different student led societies for student membership and participation. Our students also participate inE–Sports and E-Sports is a weekly lesson for Year 4 to 9 students. IVA Global Online School is represented by students in more than 26 countries around the world, and in-person gatherings are organised per area from time to time. Annually, students have the opportunity to explore the country with their classmates through our camps and tours.

Counselling and mentorship structures are built in to ensure students have the support and tools they need at any time.
“Your mind and body are instruments and how you tune them determines how you play life.”
We strive to inspire through our mutual behaviour to achieve a and dignifying of all people. Mutual Respect and dignifying all individuals regardless of shape, size, race, religious affiliation, sexual orientation and others is key and at the forefront of the IVA Global Online School value system.
