Virginia Virtual Academy Welcomes Back Students for the 2018-2019 School Year on September 4


Students and teachers at Virginia
Virtual Academy
(VAVA) will start the 2018-2019 school year on
September 4. A full-time, online public school program of King and Queen
County Public Schools, Patrick County Public Schools and Richmond City
Public Schools, VAVA provides a tuition-free public education for
students in grades K-11 across the Commonwealth. New for this academic
year, VAVA is expanding its high school to include 11th grade. The
school will grow again to offer grades K-12 for the 2019-2020 school

"As we grow our program for the new school year, we're proud to continue
to serve families across Virginia," said Suzanne Sloane, Virginia
Virtual Academy's head of school. "Our teachers are committed to
academic success, and the online platform provides a learning
environment that meets the unique needs of each student."

Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by
Virginia-licensed teachers, VAVA provides each student with a
personalized learning experience. Students take a full course load in
the core subjects of math, science, language arts, history and art, as
well as a variety of electives including, but not limited to music and
world languages.

VAVA's dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive
online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment.
In addition to scheduled classes, teachers offer individual instruction
and support, online sessions and phone calls to build close partnerships
with families and students in support of their academic success.

Students enroll in online school for a variety of reasons, including
advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to
balance their education with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.

Throughout the year, VAVA builds a sense of community through in-person
field trips, community service opportunities and social outings across
Virginia. Virtual clubs and organizations allow students to further
explore shared interests together in the online, moderated setting with
students across the K12 virtual community.

VAVA is still accepting enrollment applications for limited openings 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
