Wake County's second round of Virtual Academy applications go live
Wake County Public School System students have a second chance to apply for Wake County's virtual learning school. The application closes on July 29 at 5 p.m.Posted — Updated
The Virtual Academy can provide core classes online for students as an option for those at higher risk for coronavirus infection or for students whose parents don't feel comfortable sending them back to school during the pandemic. Students in the Virtual Academy won't have to come back into the classroom or adhere to the district's plans for reopening.
Students enrolled in the Virtual Academy, however, will not have to return to school for at least the fall semester. The courses available through the district's plan to reopen and the courses available at the Virtual Academy "are not expected to differ significantly," officials said.
The district will assign specific teachers to the Virtual Academy once they see how many students are enrolled.
