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|
- 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.
