Vilas Options Program is part of a public school, Vilas School District. The program is designed to support parents who choose to educate their children at home by allowing families to choose the best fit for their lifestyle and educational philosophy. Parents remain the primary instructional provider, with the school supplementing and complementing their efforts through online and enrichment opportunities.

Families participating in the program receive limited instruction and educational materials at no cost. This is possible because, as a public school, Vilas Options Program receives a portion of the PPOR (Per Pupil Operating Revenue) distributed at the state level for each enrolled student. This money is used to pay salaries, for curriculum and other costs associated with running the program.

Each Vilas Options student must spend a minimum of 90 hours per semester with a licensed teacher, for a minimum of 180 hours per school year. This is approximately 5 – 6 hours per week.
