About the Virtual Academy

  • York School District One will be offering a new Virtual Academy for the 2020-202school year in an effort to accommodate families that would prefer their student(s) to have a full-time virtual option.  Students in grades K – 12 will have the opportunity to experience quality instruction led by York School District One teachers in a virtual classroom environment and focused on 100% virtual instruction throughout the day.   

    Teachers in the Virtual Academy will provide face-to-face instruction, flexible support with individuals or small groups, and teacher-developed lessons for core and elective classes via live-streaming and digital coursework through computer-based platform.  Unlike a remote learning environment, students enrolled in the Virtual Academy will follow a schedule just as they would in a traditional brick and mortar school. Students will have the opportunity to receive standards-based content, ask questions, participate in classroom discussions and independent work, submit assignments, and demonstrate mastery of learning from the safety and comfort of their homes.
