Virtual Academy FAQ

 What does it take to be successful in an online course?


Students need to be motivated, organized, and willing to ask for help when needed. Parents need to check on their child daily to make sure the student is making adequate progress. 


What are the academic expectations for online students? 


Students are expected to make consistent and adequate progress as outlined by the CRVA teacher and the Counselor. If a student fails to meet expectations, he/she can be removed from the program.


How many hours a day should a student expect to work on online courses?


Students can expect to work about 1-2 hours per day per course.


Do students ever need to attend a building?


Quizzes, assignments, and projects can be done at home.  However, unit and final exams must be proctored. Students must schedule testing times with a CRVA teacher.  Teachers are located at Jefferson, Kennedy, and Washington for your convenience.


It is also strongly recommended that students set up and attend study sessions with the CRVA teacher.


Can a student take all his/her courses online?


It depends on the situation. Students that are near graduation may be able to complete their graduation requirements online. However, CRVA focuses on core courses, with few electives.  Students that need multiple elective courses will likely have to take them at one of the buildings. Course offerings will continue to increase to meet the needs of our students.  


Can online students attend school activities? 


Students are still residents of their home school and can attend activities such as dances and sporting events.  


Who is responsible or checking on a student’s progress?


The family is responsible for structuring the academic day and work environment. In other words, when and where the student will study. The CRVA teacher will check in on students weekly to make sure they are fulfilling their academic obligations as defined in the student’s academic plan.
