Question: Can I enroll in a couple of online courses through e-Academy and stay in my current district school?
Answer: No. e-Academy is a choice school and it's own district school. Students who attend e-Academy need to withdraw from their current school and have all records transferred to CRA. The only part-time option is for students getting home schooled or in private school.
Question: I want the flexibility of taking a couple of online courses? How can I do that?
Answer: All high schools offer online courses through NCVPS and NHCS. Talk to your school counselor before applying to e-Academy. You may be able to take both in-person and online courses through your current school. You can also reach out to your school's Virtual Academy Coordinator.
Question: Do I use Zoom with e-Academy?
Answer: No. All e-Academy courses are asynchronous. All content is learned at your pace; however, all teachers schedule due dates for assessments and assignments to keep students on pace.
Question: Where can I get academic help?
Answer: All online teachers are available to assist you with your academics. Many of them hold online office hours or are available to chat online or on phone. NCVPS offers the Peer Tutoring Center for many subjects. In addition, we can schedule assistance with our CRA teachers with advanced notice. Middle school e-Academy students need to reach out to their online teachers for support and help with their pacing guide. You can also hire a tutor if needed.
