Arizona Virtual Academy Now Enrolling for 2019-2020 School Year

February 28, 2019

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 28, 2019--Arizona Virtual Academy (AZVA), an accredited online public charter school, welcomes families to apply for enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year. Currently in its 15th year of operation, AZVA is available tuition-free to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who reside anywhere in Arizona.

AZVA offers an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education, by combining online instruction, rigorous curriculum and the support of state-certified teachers to provide a personalized learning experience for each student. AZVA teachers facilitate live, interactive online classes in the core subjects of English/language arts, math, science, history, world languages, art and music.

“We proudly offer Arizona families a variety of programs, to meet the diverse needs of students across the state,” said Head of School Kelly Van Sande. “Whether online or in-person, for gifted students or those who need additional resources, we are devoted to providing educational opportunities that are as unique as the students we serve.”

In 2018, the Phoenix Business Journal listed AZVA’s high school among Arizona’s top 50 public high schools based upon 2016 SAT scores. The school’s RISE Program – Reaching Intellectual Success and Excellence - offers eligible gifted students in grades 3-8 an opportunity to take their learning to a deeper level with supplemental lessons, accelerated courses, interest-based projects and field trips, and more. Eligible high school students can earn college credit through concurrent enrollment opportunities while still in high school, at no cost to the family.

Complementing its online learning platform, AZVA also offers a blended learning program, combining online courses with in-person instruction and support for students in grades 4-12. Blended learning centers are located throughout the Phoenix Metro area, as well as Kingman and Tucson, and feature on-site support, student enrichment and socialization opportunities.

Students choose online school for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. AZVA’s online platform and blended learning centers give students the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a supportive environment and with resources to suit their learning styles.

Enrollments are now being accepted for the 2019-2020 school year. To learn more, families are encouraged to attend online and in-person information sessions hosted by the school.
