High School FAQ

What does PCVA look like for a high school student?
High School at PCVA is an experience like no other. Our flexible online curriculum is designed for students who want and need a different school experience. Students can enjoy an individualized high school program tailored to their goals and abilities. Please note that this age group still needs parental guidance to monitor course progress and teacher communication.

Do high school students have to take all classes virtually?
No! Blended learning is an option for our 9th-12th grade students. Blended learning is a form of education in which a high school student learns through both virtual delivery of content and instruction while still attending “Brick-and-mortar” or the students enrolled school. We plan to offer flexibility for students that need this option.

What is my role as a parent?
At PCVA, student learning and academic growth are vital. While we offer a level of flexibility, we recognize the importance of classroom pacing and the need for students to complete their work based on set due dates. Parent involvement is still critical to student success. While teachers set the pace of instruction, the parent helps their student stay on track.
