Virginia Virtual Academy Celebrates Class of 2020

Sponsored by Businesswire

Virginia Virtual Academy (VAVA), a tuition-free public school program, will celebrate the Class of 2020 during a virtual commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 27th at 3 p.m.

Available to students in grades K-12 across the Commonwealth, VAVA is a program of the King and Queen County Public Schools, the Patrick County Public Schools and the Richmond City Public Schools.

The virtual graduation will celebrate the achievements of more than 50 students. Collectively, the Class of 2020 reports it has been accepted to trade schools, colleges and universities across the country including one graduate who will be attending the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

“With the personalized, high-quality online education they’ve received, VAVA students are more prepared than most to seize the opportunities that await them,” said Suzanne Sloane, VAVA’s Head of School. “This is a uniquely challenging time for this year’s graduates. However, I have no doubt they have the tools they need to succeed.”

Students enroll in VAVA for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some have health concerns, many wish to accelerate their learning through advanced courses unavailable at their traditional school and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting to find success. VAVA 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. Live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers provide not only an engaging environment but give students the opportunity to learn with their peers in an online platform.

Details of the graduation ceremony are as follows:
