Share:

Students Return to Online Public School on August 22

Students at Wyoming
Virtual Academy
(WYVA) will begin their 2018-19 school year on
August 22, simply by turning on their computers. An AdvancED-accredited
online public school program of Niobrara County School District #1, WYVA
is available to full-time students in kindergarten through 12th
grade.

Students choose the public school at home option from across the state
of Wyoming, many attending from remote areas where they may not
otherwise have the opportunity to access an education like WYVA.

Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by
state-certified teachers, WYVA offers each student a personalized
learning experience, including small-group instruction opportunities and
one-on-one teacher interaction.

"Enrolling our daughter in Wyoming Virtual Academy has been the best
decision we've ever made," said Linda Bates, whose daughter, ShaiLyn, is
a rising 11th grader on the autism spectrum. "The virtual setting allows
me to be actively involved in her education, and we feel so supported by
her wonderful teachers, as well as the services she receives from the
school. Not only is she thriving academically at WYVA, but she is
growing as an individual, as well."

Students in all grade levels take a full course load across the core
subjects of English/language arts, math, science, history, world
languages, art and music, as well as electives, honors and Advanced
Placement® courses.

Eligible students can also earn college credit tuition-free while still
in high school through concurrent enrollment in online courses at
Eastern Wyoming College, with credits easily transferable to the
University of Wyoming. Students can receive up to 32 credits to apply
both to their high school diploma and post-secondary degree.

WYVA'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
online platform enables students to enjoy a safe learning environment
while connecting with classmates and teachers from across the state.

Throughout the school year, WYVA builds a sense of community through
in-person field trips, monthly social outings and service learning
opportunities. WYVA celebrates the end of the school year with an
in-person prom and honors graduating seniors with an in-person
commencement ceremony in the spring. Virtual clubs and student
organizations also allow students to further explore their interests
together in the online setting.

WYVA is currently accepting enrollments for the fall. Interested
families are encouraged to attend online information sessions hosted by
the school. To learn more, visit wyva.k12.com
