How To Enroll in Online Public School

We’ve increased our school capacity for grades K–8 only. Enrollment has reopened for a limited time.

If you’re interested in alternative options, you can explore Stride K12-powered private schools. They have flexible start dates so your student hasn’t missed anything. There are tuition costs, however financial assistance and other promotions might be available.


Students that are residents of Bland, Bristol, Giles, Norton, Patrick, Radford City, Tazewell and Washington should reach out to their district directly to enroll into VAVA.

Families residing in Stafford (grades K-5) and Botetourt are district-managed, Learning Solutions partners. Parents may enroll their student into Stafford/Botetourt Virtual Academies by calling the district.

Eligibility Requirements

Please note that your kindergartener must be five years old by September 30th of the upcoming school year in order to enroll.
