LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nevada Virtual Academy (NVVA), a full-time, online public school serving students in grades 6-12 throughout the state, is ready to kick off the new school year and give students an education option designed to help them reach their full potential. NVVA students and teachers open their laptops to start the 2021-2022 school year today, August 9.
“Last year was rough for a lot of Nevada families, but NVVA can provide that consistency parents need for their child’s growth and education,” said Dr. Yolanda Hamilton, head of school for NVVA. “And we can help give your student a leg up on their next level of education too!”
Students who attend NVVA can earn Dual Credits towards their college career. NVVA partners with schools such as UNLV, University of Nevada, Reno, Grand Canyon University and more, where students can earn college credits while still in high school, giving them a head start in their state and potentially saving them thousands of dollars in college tuition costs.
For most parents, the new school year comes with cautious optimism. Many families realized during the pandemic that attending school online is a safe alternative that allows them to focus on their child’s future. According to a recent survey by Stride, Inc., 91 percent of parents agree that it’s important for their children to have multiple school options, including full-time online or a hybrid model that blends online and in-person learning.And almost two-thirds of parents would consider full-time online public school after their 2020 pandemic-driven virtual education experience.
Students choose online learning for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the flexibility to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs while maintaining a focus on academics. NVVA’s online platform gives students the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and at an appropriate pace for their learning style.
NVVA is still accepting enrollments for the 2021-2022 school year. To learn more and how to enroll, visit NVVA, or download the Stride K12 mobile app for iOS and Android devices - where families can enroll, prepare for the first day of school, and monitor students’ academic progress throughout the school year.
