Sponsored by Businesswire

North Carolina Virtual Academy (NCVA), an online public charter school authorized by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, will celebrate the Class of 2020 during an in-person commencement ceremony on Thursday, June 4th.

The virtual graduation will celebrate the achievements of 118 students.

Collectively, the Class of 2020 reports it has been accepted to trade schools, colleges and universities across the country, including: North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

“At NCVA, our students have learned how to succeed both inside and outside the classroom,” said NCVA Head of School Lauren Acome. “I’m so proud that each graduate has used online school to reach his or her full potential. I have no doubt that the NCVA Class of 2020 has a bright future ahead.”

Students enroll in NCVA for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting. NCVA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music as well as a host of electives. These live virtual classes are taught by state-licensed teachers.

Details of the graduation ceremony are as follows:
