North Carolina Virtual Public School
(Standard, Honors & AP Credit)
NCVPS is a unique program that offers sophomores, juniors and senior elective high school credit in an online environment. Students with a weighted GPA of 3.0 or higher have the opportunity to enroll in courses not currently offered at the high school. Many AP courses are also included in this program. Students must be self motivated, demonstrate computer literacy and meet all prerequisites for the virtual course.
Courses are taught by teachers from North Carolina Public Virtual School via the internet. Students access their course(s) in the high school's e-Learning Computer Lab during one or two class periods which is facilitated by the e-Learning Advisor. Honors and standard courses are a semester in length and AP courses are year-long. NCVPS courses are seminar-based; students interact, exchange information, and participate in group discussions with their classmates and teacher.
