Virtual Virginia

Virtual Virginia’s summer session 2022 will offer 90 online courses for instruction in grades 6–12 and six online enrichment courses for instruction in grades k–5. Enrollment will be available in multiple cohorts with different start and end dates.

Students who want to take other courses are encouraged to visit the Virtual Virginia website and review summer course offerings. Your school counselor will assist with the registration process if interested.  

Online Course Considerations:

With help from your school counselor and parents, students should consider the following questions?

  • Am I self-motivated and disciplined? Students should be prepared to devote as much time to the online course as would be expected in a face-to-face course. (three to five hours per day).
  • Am I receptive to information through written or visual context as opposed to spoken communication with an instructor?
  • Am I able to self-advocate and troubleshoot to get my academic and technological needs met?
  • Do I have consistent access to the internet and a reliable laptop/desktop?

We understand that some students may find accessing online learning resources challenging. If you need reliable tools or connectivity, please contact our summer school coordinator.
