How Online Education Works at NVVA
Public School Accountability
As an online public school, Nevada Virtual Academy is tuition free and available to students in grades 6–12 throughout the state of Nevada. Nevada Virtual Academy provides the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and state testing required of all public schools.
Nevada Virtual Academy provides a high quality, online education to Nevada students. The key is our individualized approach. We develop a comprehensive learning plan with objectives for each child. This creates a customized education for each student, that focuses on his or her unique learning needs, goals, and interests.
Nevada Virtual Academy uses award-winning curriculum and learning services from K12. Your student's learning can occur at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection is available. Day-to-day procedures, such as recording attendance, teacher interactions, and coursework are conducted online. While lessons are online they also use physical materials and offline tools.
Licensed Teachers and the Learning Coach
At Nevada Virtual Academy, all students interact with a state-licensed teacher and communicate regularly through email, telephone, and online meetings. Working closely with the teacher, the parent (or other responsible adult) serves as a Learning Coach to the child, helping to facilitate his or her progress. At the high school level, students work at a more collective pace with a class of students and a teacher. Each teacher is trained in his or her specific subject area.
Superior Teaching Tools
Each Nevada Virtual Academy family receives learning materials, including a wide array of textbooks, CDs, videos, and other hands-on tools and resources. These materials complement the interactive online elements of our program to ensure students receive instruction using the best method for each subject matter.
Extensive School Support System
Nevada Virtual Academy provides an extensive support system for both parents and students. Monthly networking opportunities are provided through various educational events and outings, enabling the entire school community to keep in close contact.
