Fayetteville Virtual Academy is an open-enrollment school. Students who reside in the Fayetteville Public School District attendance area are eligible to attend FVA. Students who reside in the state of Arkansas, but outside the Fayetteville Public School District may apply to enroll in FVA but will only be accepted under the School Choice Act of 2015 or by receiving written approval from their residential school districts through the petition process. Students are not required to enroll on a part-time or full-time basis and may choose to withdraw. If the student and parent no longer believe that virtual learning is an appropriate option, please contact the student’s designated school counselor at the school of primary enrollment to discuss other enrollment options.
Fayetteville Virtual Academy has two (2) types of enrollments—part-time and full-time. Full-time students take all courses at Fayetteville Virtual Academy. Part-time students may take between one (1) and three (3) courses at other secondary schools within the Fayetteville Public School District.
Part-time students in grades seven (7) and eight (8) are required to complete all core courses (English language arts, math, science, and social studies) through FVA and may access electives at Ramay Junior High School or Woodland Junior High School.
Part-time students in grades nine (9) through twelve (12) may enroll in any combination of courses as long as four (4) or more courses are taken at Fayetteville Virtual Academy. Part-time and full-time Fayetteville Virtual Academy Students may elect to graduate from high school with a diploma awarded by Fayetteville Virtual Academy or Fayetteville High School.
Students who are enrolled at Fayetteville High School may access up to three (3) virtual elective courses through Fayetteville Virtual Academy. They complete the enrollment process and scheduling at Fayetteville High School.
Fayetteville Virtual Academy strives to determine whether virtual learning best serves each student’s educational needs before enrolling on a full-time basis. Our school is modeled after the collegiate style of online learning and delivered primarily in an asynchronous format. Courses are extremely challenging with learners working independently, advancing at their own pace, and connecting with the teacher when additional academic support is needed.
After an application is submitted for a student, his or her parent receives an email with all of the enrollment information. Parents are asked to complete the online enrollment form. Upon receiving the student’s completed enrollment form, Fayetteville Virtual Academy will schedule a time for the student and his or her parent to meet with the counselor and registrar to complete the enrollment process.
The enrollment and onboarding process includes:
- submitting required paperwork
- a parent interview
- a student survey
- selecting courses; and
- new student orientation
