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 a challenging curriculum.
Teachers in the Virtual Academy will provide face-to-face instruction via live-streaming and digital coursework through computer-based platforms.
Unlike remote learning, which was implemented during the emergency shutdown last spring, students in the virtual program will follow a schedule just as they would in a traditional brick and mortar school.
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.
