The Virginia Department of Education’s Virtual Virginia program offers a full-time program serving 200 students for the 2019–2020 school year. Students will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. The program will offer all required core academic courses and electives necessary to earn a Standard or Advanced Studies diploma. As with the supplemental Virtual Virginia program, the full-time program may serve public, private, and home-schooled students who enroll through their local public school.
Courses are delivered through Virtual Virginia’s secure, web-based environment, and, like traditional classroom instruction, will include readings, discussion forums, written assignments, media, student presentations and projects, case studies, simulations, lab assignments, models, and opportunities for student collaboration.
Students in the full-time program enrolled through their local public school will receive instruction through Virtual Virginia provided by highly qualified teachers with Virginia certification. Local schools will ensure that students in the program have access to student services, technology, textbooks, and other necessary materials at no cost. Virtual Virginia will award a numerical average for each completed course. The local school will assign credit and the appropriate letter grade for this average based on the school’s grading scale.
Students in high school (grades 9–12) who meet the course prerequisites and have approval from the local public school may enroll through their school counselor. Course prerequisites are found on the Course Offerings page. Home school and private school students who wish to participate in the full-time program must enroll via their local public school.
Virtual Virginia has expanded to offer 90 core, Advanced Placement, Standard, elective, and world language courses, and will continue to offer courses to students who may not have access to these courses within their schools due to low enrollments, scheduling conflicts, or lack of highly qualified teachers.
