Registration now open for the Columbia Virtual Academy for the 2021-2022 school year

The Columbia County School District is pleased to announce a new virtual learning opportunity FREE for its students beginning the 2021-2022 school year.

The Columbia Virtual Academy (CVA) is available for all children in grades 6-12 that live in the Columbia County School District, including students currently attending private school or homeschool.

All CVA courses will be taught by certified Columbia County School District educators during the Fall and/or Spring sessions. The CVA provides the opportunity for students to choose a full-time or part-time virtual schedule while keeping the option to participate in extracurricular activities at their zoned school.

“We are excited to offer this flexible learning option for middle and high school students. The Columbia Virtual Academy offers a rigorous curriculum with units of study developed and taught by Columbia County certified teachers who are skilled in effective digital learning instructional practices. So, whether choosing to attend school full-time, to learn virtually full-time, or to do a little of both, students are able to reap all of the benefits of being a part of the Columbia County School District,” said Dr. Sandra Carraway, Superintendent of Schools.

A virtual informational meeting will be live streamed Monday, December 7, 2020, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at http://bit.ly/ccsdlive. Enrollment in the CVA for the Fall Session of the 2021-2022 school year will be available beginning December 8, 2020, through January 19, 2021.

Interested students and parents are encouraged to read the information on the CVA website and speak to their school counselor to determine if the academy is a good fit for their style of learning. This information and more, including courses offered, student eligibility, and a profile of a successful virtual learning student, is available at https://bit.ly/ccboecva.
