Superintendent Search Survey
Dear Parents and Community of Wickenburg School District,
After 11 years of dedicated service to Wickenburg Unified School District, Superintendent Dr. Howard Carlson is retiring at the end of 2019-2020 school year. Dr. Carlson has led the District with vision and hard work and will be greatly missed.
The School Board has hired ASBA (Arizona School Board’s Association) to help conduct a search for a new superintendent. As part of the search, ASBA has conducting a parent and community survey to gain input on the character and qualities the Board should be looking for in a superintendent. Suervey results can be found in the link below.

Welcome to the Virtual Academy
Welcome to digital online learning provided by Wickenburg Virtual Academy (WVA). We are a fully online school available to students throughout the state of Arizona for grades K-12. We believe that given the opportunity for success, students can meet the challenge that a rigorous curriculum can present and learn in the online platform with support from their highly qualified instructors.
Here are some basic highlights of our online school:
- Students are taught by highly qualified instructors in each core class using our online curriculum and other instructional materials embedded in our website in portable document format (PDF). This means that you can access all lessons and materials online.
- Students can earn a Grand Canyon Diploma (GCD), if they desire, by passing end of course ACT assessments and graduate one to two years early. If a student earns a GCD the school district will pay for Arizona community college tuition for one to two years.
- Tutoring is available in our after school tutoring sessions. If the student is struggling an appointment can be made for “face to face” instruction. We can do this long distance by Google Talk, Skype, or phone, but students who live close enough to our lab are also welcome to set up appointments and work with their teacher to receive one-on-one instruction.
- Students can take part in clubs and sports the district offers if they are in good academic standing in their WVA classes and live close enough to one of our district schools to be feasible.
In closing, we hope to help your student achieve his/her goals. We are here to partner with you!
