environment and the ability to balance their education with
extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. Combining innovative
technology with a rigorous curriculum led by state-licensed teachers,
NVVA offers each student a personalized learning experience.

"Nevada Virtual Academy could not be more perfect for my son's needs,"
said Tina Olsen, whose son Logan is a bilateral amputee and a rising
first grader at NVVA. "We're able to go to doctors' appointments without
missing school, and I am able to play an active role in his education.
And his teachers are out-of-this-world outstanding – not only do they
provide instruction and encouragement for Logan, but they are so
supportive of me as his learning coach, as well."

NVVA offers a blended learning program that combines online learning
with face-to-face instruction and support. The school has blended
learning sites in Las Vegas and Reno where students can meet and engage
with a state-licensed teacher in person in addition to the virtual

Students in all grade levels take a full course load across the core

Higher Education, offers qualified juniors and seniors the opportunity
to earn college credit up to an associate degree while enrolled at NVVA.

NVVA's dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive
online classes, and interact with students and families via phone,
email, web-based classrooms and online discussions, building close
partnerships with parents and students to support academic success. The
