GVA High School

Gainesville High Virtual Academy (GVA) was established in 2020 as a means to help students meet their educational requirements by offering high school courses during both the regular school year (fall and spring terms) and summer term. 

While enrolled in courses at GVA, students will participate in a meaningful online learning experience that allows them to become familiar with key means of increasing their own knowledge and skills. It will also prepare them for the demands that they will encounter in higher education, the workplace, and in personal life-long learning. While students informally develop technology skills and gain experience through their media rich lives, an online learning experience will require them to complete assignments, meet deadlines, learn appropriate online behavior, and effectively collaborate with others in an instructional setting.

Gainesville High Virtual Academy offers high quality, Internet-delivered core high school courses that equip students to thrive in the complex life and work environment of the 21st Century. Gainesville Virtual Academy is an online program, but is not a school. Online courses provide a full course education experience in which instruction takes place primarily over the internet, using an online delivery system to provide access to course content. It may be accessed from multiple settings (in school and/or out of school buildings). In this virtual online environment, students follow a course schedule to complete a combination of assignments; tests; quizzes; projects; and assessments that permit a teacher to follow the educational progress of the student.
Courses are delivered through the Georgia Virtual School program which pairs highly effective online instructors with content organized for optimal student learning within a digital format. Students will also be assigned to a content specialist at GHS who will serve as their facilitator and be available to assist with any questions about the material. The facilitators will also monitor the progress and online behaviors of students and communicate with parents to ensure that all stakeholders are aware of student progress.

Students at GVA will remain connected to GHS via enrollment in an online Cohort group. This Cohort group will provide GVA students with announcements available to face-to-face students and provide opportunities to connect with clubs and extra-curricular groups. 

Gainesville Virtual Academy's virtual learning environment not only provides students with the opportunity to access rigorous course content, but supports them as they pursue graduation progress through an environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. Gainesville Virtual Academy is preparing students for success in a 21st century world.
