NVVA’s online platform gives students the flexibility to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment at an appropriate pace for their learning style.
NVVA provides a blended learning program that combines online learning with face-to-face instruction. The school has blended learning sites in Las Vegas and Reno where students can meet and engage with a state-licensed teacher in person in addition to the virtual interaction.
The school’s rigorous and engaging curriculum includes core courses in English/language arts, math, science, history, world languages, art and music, as well as an extensive catalog of electives. High School students can take honors and Advanced Placement® courses. Additionally, the school’s dual credit program, in collaboration with the Nevada System of Higher Education, offers qualified juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit up to an associate degree while enrolled at NVVA.
“NVVA provides highly structured, rigorous academics while allowing Teshi to pursue her acting career and speaking opportunities,” said Evonne Scott, whose daughter, Teshi Thomas, attends Nevada Virtual Academy. “The administration and teachers have been more than accommodating to Teshi’s schedule. When she’s at an acting job, she travels with her laptop and participates in school each day.”
During the enrollment period, NVVA will be conducting online and in-person information sessions throughout the state. Interested families are encouraged to attend to meet teachers, staff and other families. For more information about NVVA and a list of upcoming events, visit http://nvva.k12.com.
