Virtual Virginia’s Summer Session 2022 K–5 Enrichment program gives Virginia public school divisions, schools, and learners high-quality synchronous and asynchronous enrichment instruction in core academics, STEM, French, Spanish, and coding.
Through this program, Virtual Virginia (VVA) will provide the asynchronous enrichment content and synchronous instruction via the VVA learning management system (LMS). Enrichment instruction is offered in two cohorts during the summer, and learners may participate in either or both cohorts.
The enrichment program is open to all learners in grades K–5 and may be especially appealing to students who are new to online learning or will be enrolled in online instruction through VVA for the 2022–2023 school year.
Parents/families may enroll their children for home instruction by following these instructions.
Virtual Virginia will offer eight online enrichment courses across three subject areas:
