  • Welcome! 

    Thank you for visiting the Virtual Academy website

    Rock Hill Schools continues to be committed to providing school choice options that meet the needs of our students and families. ​

    The development of a virtual program is not only a good fit for families who remain concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic, but also for those who simply enjoy the benefits of learning from home, while still having access to certified teachers and to a challenging curriculum.​

    Teachers in the Virtual Academy provide face-to-face instruction via live-streaming and digital coursework through computer-based platforms. ​The Virtual Academy serves students at all grade levels. 

    Unlike remote learning, which was implemented during the emergency shutdown as the pandemic began, students in the Virtual Academy will follow a schedule just as they would in a traditional brick and mortar school.  ​Attendance DOES count, as does school appropriate behavior. 

    Thanks to technology, students will be able to see and hear dedicated teachers deliver standards-based content, ask questions, participate in classroom discussions and independent work, and turn in class work and tests, all from the safety and comfort of their homes. ​
