Virtual Virginia is a program, operated by the Virginia Department of Education, that serves students in grades K-12 from across the commonwealth. Teachers in the program are employed by Virtual Virginia and students learn alongside peers from other Virginia school divisions using Virtual Virginia’s Canvas learning management system.
Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) students taking courses through Virtual Virginia remain connected to their zoned CPS school while receiving instruction from Virtual Virginia teachers. Students may participate in all school-sponsored sports, clubs, and activities, including graduation ceremonies. While students enrolled in the Virtual Virginia program can complete their coursework from any location where internet access is available, they may be required to report to their zoned school to complete assessments mandated by Chesapeake Public Schools, the Virginia Department of Education, and/or the College Board. Because Virtual Virginia serves students across the state of Virginia, their school calendar varies slightly from the Chesapeake Public Schools calendar.
Students considering enrolling in Virtual Virginia courses must be independent learners, self-motivated, able to ask for help when needed, reading and writing at grade level, and able to communicate effectively through writing. Virtual Virginia provides a daily to-do list for how to be successful in an online course.
