CHESAPEAKE VIRTUAL ACADEMY [LOGO] A new learning opportunity begins 2021-2022


Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, Chesapeake Virtual Academy (CVA) will offer high school students the opportunity to take a variety of fully online courses as part of their high school experience. Chesapeake Virtual Academy courses are asynchronous which means students are not required to login at a specific time or place for live instruction. While students will have the ability to work at a pace that is personalized to their needs, students are expected to adhere to a weekly schedule with assignments due at various times during the week.

Unlike Chesapeake Online students who attend CVA will not receive daily, live instruction from teachers; however, teachers will be available to meet with students weekly for scheduled online learning support sessions and enrichment. Since CVA courses are asynchronous in format, students taking courses in CVA must be self-motivated, able to manage time wisely, regularly meet deadlines, and ask for assistance as needed. In addition, students should possess basic computer skills and be comfortable using the Internet for independent learning activities, email, and the Schoology learning management system.

All high school students in grades 9-12 are eligible to take courses through Chesapeake Virtual Academy. Students may select CVA courses as a part-time or full-time virtual student as outlined below:

Part-Time (Hybrid) CVA Student Full-Time CVA Student
  • Takes a mixture of online CVA courses and traditional on campus courses at their home school, CCC, or Governor’s School
  • Takes all of their courses online through CVA and/or Virtual Virginia
  • Makes a full-year commitment to the program

  • Access to a computer (personal or school Chromebook) and internet connection (personal, public, or CPS hotspot).
    • Please note: a mobile device (phone or tablet) is not sufficient.
  • CPS will provide tech support for CPS issued hardware only.
  • Students should possess basic computer skills and be comfortable using the Internet for independent learning activities, email, G-Suite applications, and the Schoology learning management system.
Students interested in enrolling in CVA courses should meet with their school counselor during the 2021-2022 scheduling window (January-February 2021) and submit their course requests. Space is limited and course availability is determined by enrollment so the earlier students submit their course requests the greater chance they have to secure a seat.

Students who wish to enroll in a CVA course after the 2021-2022 scheduling window may do so if seats are available. Contact your school counselor for more information.

Full-time Chesapeake Virtual Academy students taking all of their courses online make a one year commitment to the program when they enroll. Full-time CVA students have until June 7, 2021 to change their mind and withdraw from the program. After June 7, 2021 full-time students may be transferred back to in-person learning at their homeschool due to an immediate or demonstrated need based on the student’s academic performance.
