Gaston County Virtual Academy earns accreditation as a quality school

  • Now in its second year, the Virtual Academy is a dynamic online school that offers personalized learning and schedule flexibility for students in grades 4-10. This program is ideal for students in a homeschool setting or students who need an alternative to the traditional school setting. The Academy offers online classes that are aligned with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and focus on English/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. World languages, elective, and Career and Technical Education classes are available. At the Virtual Academy, students do not navigate the online school environment alone. Teachers are available to offer guidance, help with lessons, have discussions, and provide feedback on assignments. Further, students have the opportunity to interact with other Virtual Academy students through in-person enrichment activities. Congratulations to the Gaston County Virtual Academy on earning accreditation as a quality school.
