Teachers and students in grades K-12 will open their laptops and log on to start the 2020-2021 school year on August 17th.

The first day of school comes amid many families’ education-related concerns during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. SCVCS students have access to a robust set of online resources and attend live virtual classes on a daily basis. With personalized learning tools available for every student, SCVCS combines a rigorous curriculum, online instruction, and the support of state-licensed teachers. Teachers regularly communicate with SCVCS students and their families via email, phone and during one-on-one meetings online.

“As a team of educators and school leaders, we are committed to meeting students where they are on their academic journey,” says Head of School Dr. Cherry Daniel. “At SCVCS, we cherish the opportunity to provide South Carolina students with the tools they need to succeed with us, and wherever their journey takes them.”

In addition to core academic studies, SCVCS offers career learning courses in growing career fields including, but not limited to: health and human services, information technology, computer science, and general management. These courses support high schoolers in pursuing credentials that help them become more readily employable upon graduation.

Many families and students are choosing online school because it provides an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Athletes, advanced learners, and all types of students can balance a full academic load along with extracurricular pursuits or any other specialized needs.
