What grades are offered by North Carolina Virtual Academy (NCVA)?

NCVA offers full-time enrollment for grades K–12. Kindergarteners must be five years old on or before August 31 to be eligible for the program.

How much time do students spend on the computer?

Do you provide curriculum for special needs children?

Can you accommodate the accelerated learning needs of my gifted/talented child?

The beauty of our program is that it is flexible enough to meet children where they are in any given subject and take them where they want to go. Grade placement assessments, completed as part of the enrollment process, allow us to place your student in the appropriate level of curriculum. So, for example, if your fourth grader is doing math on a sixth-grade level and reading on a fourth-grade level, we can tailor lesson plans to meet your student’s abilities. Starting in 8th grade, students also have the option of dual enrollment to start earning college credit.

How do students interact socially?

Throughout the year, students will be invited to participate in school outings, field trips (e.g., to historical sites, museums, zoos), picnics, and other social events. Local students and parents can get together on a regular basis in their areas. Students can also take advantage of a wide variety of online clubs.

Will my child have the same graduation opportunities as students in traditional public schools?

Yes. As a public charter school in North Carolina students can earn a diploma through NCVA based on successful completion and mastery of course content as well as exams and state assessments.

Will this program intrude into my home?

There are no home visits as part of the program and no other intrusions into your home.
