Pitt County Virtual Academy serves as an educational solution for any student enrolled in Pitt County Schools in grades 4-12. As PCVA participants, students are not required to come to the school campus to receive their instruction. Students are afforded the opportunity to flexible learning at home or wherever they feel best creates a learning environment for them. Although flexibility is afforded to these students, the expectation is for virtual learners to take their education seriously. PCVA will remain an opportunity for students who demonstrate the appropriate responsibility in taking control of their own education by actively engaging in course activities and work while also being academically successful.
For students in grades 4-8, PCVA will use PCS teachers to provide instruction in the 4 core areas (ELA, math, science and Social Studies). A blend of PCVA, NCVPS, and Edgenuity will be used to provide supplemental elective options. Both PCVA and Edgenuity are courses that are taught by local PCS teachers while NCVPS is the state online platform that uses certified teachers from around NC. Students participating in this virtual learning can expect a rigorous education of both "live" and "on-demand" instruction.

The goal of Pitt County Virtual Academy (PCVA) is to provide students with additional opportunities, flexibility, and convenience to earn high school credits in an online environment. PCVA provides quality and rigorous education that challenges students both in a traditional classroom setting and through online learning courses.
Pitt County Schools understands the need for options for today's learners. PCVA provides flexible opportunities which allow students the ability to accelerate their education. PCVA also provides access to more course offerings by combining one PCVA course and offering it to all high schools. As well as, allowing students the chance to recover courses and catch back up. The flexibility of PCVA also allows options for students who may not fit into the traditional school model, including home-schooled students, who can take some high school courses in the environment of their choice. In all of these scenarios, PCS wants to provide flexible opportunities to move through the state graduation requirements in a way that best meets each student's needs and circumstances. We use courses mapped to district, state and national standards which are developed and delivered by highly-qualified educators within Pitt County Schools. These courses will provide students with a rich and rigorous learning environment.
PCVA is excited to offer this opportunity for students currently enrolled at one of our high schools. PCVA is also excited to offer the opportunity to students that are homeschooled or not a part of the PCS system.
