Welcome to the Virtual Academy

  • Hello Arizona Family and Friends,

    As Wickenburg Unified School District's online school, we strive to meet the needs of all types of students in grades 4-12 throughout the state of Arizona. While we are located in Wickenburg, we serve families from all parts of the Grand Canyon State (and beyond). We are able to do this by partnering with Imagine Learning/Edgenuity to provide rigorous online classes and highly qualified teachers for our students. Take a moment to read about our school and spend time learning about us through our website. 

    A Quick Checklist of Our School

    • Virtual teachers will monitor student progress, grade assignments, hold virtual office hours, communicate with students, parents, and WVA staff to provide necessary support to the students. 
    • All courses are asynchronous, meaning students move at their own pace throughout each course each week, but students must maintain a work pace of 5–6 hours per course/per week, make academic progress each week, and pass the courses by the end of the term.
    • A Family Portal is available on the curriculum platform for parent(s)/guardian(s) to monitor student progress in courses as well as up-to-date grades.
    • Parents are encouraged to actively participate in their student’s learning process by ensuring student participation and completion of assignments.
    • It is required that all full-time online students participate in state testing. If a student does not attend a mandated state test, they may be withdrawn from our school. The WVA staff will notify parents of upcoming testing sessions. (ARS 15-808)
    • Due to our block schedule, for grades 9-12, the opportunity to transition to in-person learning (traditional campus) can only occur at semester break.
    • If the academic achievement of a student declines while participating in Arizona online instruction, a meeting shall be held with parents, teachers, and administration to evaluate whether the student should be allowed to continue to participate in the Wickenburg Virtual Academy. (ARS 15-808)
    • Students in grades 6-12 may be eligible to participate in athletics/activities/events on their home campus, following local school eligibility guidelines.
    •  Students attending WVA full-time who meet graduation requirements will have the opportunity to participate in the May graduation ceremony along with Wickenburg High School students.
    • For students enrolled full-time at a brick and mortar school, we offer single courses to help meet graduation requirements. Wickenburg Unified School District students do not have to pay to take a concurrent course through us.
    • We follow the Wickenburg Unified School District Calendar for all holidays and breaks.
    • We offer summer school courses for Wickenburg Unified School District students as well as out-of-district students.

    I am happy to answer any additional questions you may have. Please call our office and give me the opportunity to chat with you. 

    Sincerely,

    Coleen Peterson, WVA Director
