NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the second year in a row, students are invited to find the career path that works best for them at Arkansas Virtual Academy (ARVA), which is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year.
Through the school’s Destinations Career program, students can pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like information technology (IT), business, agriculture, and more. Even if a student doesn’t know exactly what they want to do, career readiness programs help open a world of what’s possible.
“At ARVA, we are truly passionate about student achievement,” said ARVA’s Head of School Amy Johnson. “Our experienced and devoted teaching staff and support team are committed to helping every student succeed in the classroom and beyond.”
In addition to career readiness courses, ARVA students have access to a robust online curriculum and attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers. Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music, as well as a host of electives including world languages. Teachers regularly communicate with students and their families via email, phone and during one-on-one meetings online.
An online public charter school, ARVA is available tuition-free to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who reside anywhere in the state. Many families and students choose ARVA because it provides an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Athletes, advanced learners, and students seeking a bullying-free environment can balance a full academic course load along with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
Outside of the virtual classroom, ARVA offers online student clubs and in-person activities such as field trips, community service opportunities and social gatherings, including an annual graduation ceremony for seniors.
Students and families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school. More information on ARVA, how to enroll, and a schedule of upcoming events can be found at arva.k12.com.
