Welcome to the Wilson School District Virtual Academy
The mission of the Wilson School District’s Virtual Academy, the WVA, is to ensure students have access to quality online learning opportunities that prepare them for a lifetime of success.
We believe that every student has different educational needs whether it be the total classroom experience, totally virtual or a combination of both. A student enrolled in the WVA has the full gamut of Wilson resources available to him/her, all extracurricular activities and a liaison/mentor between the district, parents, student and curriculum vendor. Your student has full access to the Building Libraries and a quiet place to work, if needed. Please contact Deb Chestnut, email@example.com or 610-670-0180 ext 1139 for more information.
For more information about the WVA, please read our brochure.
