From Rural Virtual Academy

The RVA is a tuition-free, online public school, with the same accreditation and accountability as your local brick and mortar school. The difference is, we have the freedom to teach your children the way they learn best. At the RVA, we strive to provide families the resources they need to provide a strong academic foundation, the flexibility to learn on their own schedule and at their own pace, teachers that both engage and inspire, and specialty classes that your typical brick and mortar school can’t provide.

Our students continue to exceed expectations and the parents of our school children are second to none. Likewise, the teachers and staff of the RVA are some of the best educators because each embraces the idea that relationships between home and school is the ultimate determining factor in student success and parent satisfaction. Our staff works year-round, selflessly placing the needs of their students and school families, at times, beyond even their own.

    I attended Rural Virtual Academy since October 2018 and it was such a good experience. The teachers were very welcoming, and very understanding to my health concerns. They made time to help me catch up on tasks I missed and they also made sure I was getting work done on time. The classes were not only educational, but interesting and the projects made me want to learn more about the subjects. Rural Virtual Academy was such an amazing experience, and I’m so excited for my senior year!

    It was such an amazing experience. You got wondering staff and students. You get to make lasting relationships too. It helped me so much since I worked all the time and got easily sick. I would recommend it to anyone getting bullied, easily get sick, etc. I was apart of the RVA for three years and loved it. I recently just graduated too. I didn’t think I could graduate, but the RVA helped and you too can also graduate! Good luck fellow high schoolers!
    We have been schooling with RVA for 5 years. We love it! The flexibility of schedule, the rigorous lessons, and the wonderful support we get from the staff is all that we have ever needed.
