A tuition-free full-time online and blended public school, Nevada Virtual Academy (NVVA) is ready to get back to work providing students in the US state with the safe and comprehensive education they need during these historic times.
The first day of school comes as families across the state are frustrated and nervous about what the new school year will mean in the face of a global pandemic. According to one survey, two-thirds of parents support keeping brick and mortar schools closed until there is no risk. Attending school online is a safe alternative and career readiness programmes can allow families to still focus on their child’s future.
As part of the Nevada public school system, and staffed by state-licensed teachers, NVVA offers a personalised approach to learning, delivering rich, engaging curriculum designed to assist students who seek alternative pathways to education. And the blended programme provides students with that in-person instruction many of them need to help achieve academic success.
“It’s been really tough to predict what school will look like over the next few years, but thanks to the skills they learn here, our students are prepared to take on the world, in whatever form it may take,” said NVVA Head of School Dr. Yolanda Hamilton.
Students choose online school for a variety of reasons including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. The NVVA online platform gives students the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and at an appropriate pace for their learning style.
