Maine Virtual Academy Welcomes Back Students for the 2018-2019 School Year on August 27


Students will begin the 2018-2019 school year at Maine
Virtual Academy
(MEVA) on August 27, simply by turning on their
computers. A full-time, online public charter school authorized by the
Maine Charter School Commission, MEVA provides a tuition-free public
education option for students in grades 7-12 across the state.

"From urban areas to our rural communities, we're proud to offer
families across Maine with a public school option that serves their
unique needs," said Dr. Melinda Browne, head of school at MEVA. "Our
inspired teachers are committed to the success of each student, and the
online learning platform offers an opportunity for students to reach
their full potential."

Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by
Maine-certified teachers, MEVA provides each student with a personalized
learning experience. Students take a full course load in the core
subjects of math, science, language arts, history, art and music, as
well as world languages. Electives, honors and Advanced Placement®
courses are available in high school grades.

MEVA's dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive
online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment
anywhere with an internet connection. In addition to scheduled classes,
teachers offer one-on-one instruction and support, online chat sessions
and family phone calls to build close partnerships in support of
academic success.

Students enroll in online school for a variety of reasons, including
advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to
balance academic goals with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
For many students, MEVA offers an education they wouldn't otherwise have
access to, with unique course offerings to prepare them for college and
career opportunities. Graduates have gone on to attend top higher
education institutions across New England and beyond.

Throughout the year, MEVA fosters a sense of community through in-person
field trips and social outings, and celebrates graduating seniors at a
commencement ceremony in the spring. Virtual clubs and organizations
also allow students to further explore shared interests together in an
online setting.

MEVA is accepting enrollment applications for the 2018-2019 school year.
Families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information
session hosted by the school. To learn more about enrollment and for a
