RVA Online: High School

RVA Online supports the full high school course regimen in an e-learning format.

For our high school students, we are offering all scheduled courses online with the exception of advanced auto mechanics, wood tech courses, and pottery. (Students enrolled in one of these courses may substitute another term length class or a study hall in its place.)

Our priority is to enable our students to continue their planned sequence of education toward either the College Prep Diploma or the General Education Diploma.

“I’m looking forward to trying different teaching techniques to help students interact with our texts and engage in deeper thinking.” –Kristy Faber, RVA teacher

 RVA Online Instructional Format

High school students will access curriculum and submit assignments online through Moodle. Instruction could involve video or audio lectures (with transcripts provided to accommodate bandwidth concerns), teacher demonstrations, and discussion forums.

While students must log into Moodle and work on assignments regularly, all classes are asynchronous. No assignments will require printing.

Minimum requirements: computer or RVA tablet; internet access of 3G or better for a portion of each day, five days per week; the ability to scan/photograph work for submission.

High School Online FAQ
  1. Do students need to access RVA Online on designated days of the week and/or during specific hours of the day? No. RVA Online is asynchronous, meaning that students may study on their own schedule. Students should expect to study online about five days per week in order to read/view lectures, work through all of their course material, participate in discussions, and meet ongoing deadlines for assignments.
  2. I have a question about my course schedule or required credits. Whom should I contact? Please email Mr. Nelson at guidancedir@rva.org with all schedule or credit-related questions.
