Gainesville Virtual Academy

Current School Year Information

Gainesville Virtual Academy (GVA) is designed to provide students with an opportunity to engage in a virtual learning environment that does not require the physical presence in a traditional school setting, yet still supplies the support of a certified teacher for instruction. Online courses give a full course educational experience in which instruction takes place primarily over the internet, using an internet-based delivery system to provide access to course content. Although the delivery of course content is virtual, age-appropriate screen-time guidelines will be established and followed. In other words, students (especially those in elementary grades) would not be expected to work in front of the computer for the equivalent of an entire face-to-face school day. In some grade levels or courses, particularly at the lower elementary level, significant parental support may be necessary. In this virtual environment, other students (particularly those in upper elementary grades through high school) should be capable of working independently (setting and monitoring their own schedules in order to complete a combination of assignments, tests, quizzes, projects, and assessments). GVA courses are led by certified teachers, and the grades earned become part of the student's academic record. GVA will be accessed outside of the school building.
