Option Two: Clay Virtual Academy (K-12)
Clay Virtual Academy (CVA) has successfully served thousands of full-time students learning online since 2010. This full-time virtual school experience is ideal for students who wish to have more control over their learning path and pace, and for whom a flexible daily schedule is important. In this learning model, students often work on assignments during non-traditional hours, and maintain contact with their teacher and classmates using web-based class sessions, email, text messages, and phone calls.
Clay Virtual Academy offers courses for students in kindergarten through 12th grade, supported by a team of highly-qualified Clay County teachers who offer office hours. Enrollment requires a semester-long or year-long commitment, as well as an adult who can partner with CVA teachers to ensure student academic success, especially at the elementary school level.
Because Clay Virtual Academy is a public school choice, students must participate in all required state assessments and may take part in extracurricular clubs and activities with their zoned school.
Clay Virtual Academy offers accredited courses, access to academic advisement and college planning, and opportunities for advanced coursework (including dual enrollment). Graduates earn a standard high school diploma accepted by colleges, universities, and other postsecondary programs.
Students who choose full-time Clay Virtual Academy withdraw from their regular school and switch their enrollment to CVA. Students who wish to participate in online learning while remaining enrolled in their current school should choose Option 3 - OneClay Online. Information about CVA and enrollment can be found on the Clay Virtual Academy website. Students must commit to this option for at least one semester. Students will be able to switch their enrollment back to their regular CCDS school at the end of the semester (student’s places are held at their previously enrolled school, including students on SPRs, open enrollment, and lottery acceptance).
**Students who are new to Clay County District Schools are required to register online and submit all required documents before online classes can be scheduled. New students will be scheduled for online learning once enrolled in their school.
