Rural Virtual Academy


Home-schooled or Southern Door Resident Attending Other Virtual Schools?

Because of the unique partnership between the RVA and our district, you can take classes you can't take virtually, like choir and band, at your local school and then take the rest of your classes at home with the RVA.  You can even attend our graduation ceremony!

Do you like to play competitive sports?  Join the local team while taking classes virtually with the RVA.  That's something you can't do with any other virtual school!

Already Attending Southern Door?

No two children are alike.
  • Special interests
  • Courses that are not offered 
  • Enrichment

If no two children are alike, then why should they have the exact same educational solutions?  We believe your child's education should be as unique as they are.  They all can't fit in the same box and they shouldn't.

Students may apply to enroll in a Rural Virtual Academy course under the following conditions:

  • The course is not currently offered by the Southern Door School District.
  • The course is currently offered; however, the students will not be able to take it due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict at school.
  • The course may supplement homebound instruction as defined by the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or Individual Health Plan.
  • The course is currently a part of the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
  • The student requires a differentiated or accelerated learning environment according to their Differentiated Education Plan (DEP).
  • The student needs to make up credit, due to failing a course that is required for graduation.
  • The student is at risk of not graduating and is earning a high school diploma through the GEDO2 Program.
  • The student has been expelled and continuing their education is part of the expulsion order.
  • The student is an Adult Learner seeking a high school diploma.

 

Requests for enrollment should be brought to the building principal for consideration in consultation with the school counselor. 

Online course requests for the school year need to be turned in for approval to the counselor no later than two weeks prior to the start of the semester.  Online course requests for the summer term need to be turned in for approval to the counselor no later than 5 days after the last day of the school year.
