How It Works (K–8)

North Carolina Virtual Academy is a tuition-free public school that uses the K12 curriculum.

Materials like books, CDs, and even science lab supplies are delivered right to your doorstep.

A state-certified teacher partners with you and your child to help guide and track progress through the curriculum. There will be frequent in-person events as well.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized, so your child can have positive social and learning experiences.
