How It Works
How Online High School in Wyoming Works
Who can attend?
The Wyoming Virtual Academy (WYVA) high school program serves full-time and part-time students in grades 9–12 who reside in the state of Wyoming.
What are the costs?
Because WYVA is a program of Niobrara County School District #1, it’s tuition-free. Enrolled families receive the K12 curriculum and qualified students receive a loaner computer and printer.
Working with Your Teacher
Teachers provide individual and small group assistance via online synchronous sessions called “Class Connects.” Students are expected to attend all required Class Connects and meet with their teacher to receive course assistance, tutoring, and instruction.
Expectations for Completing Schoolwork
At WYVA, student learning and academic growth are paramount. While we offer a level of flexibility, we recognize the importance of classroom pacing and the need for students to complete their work based on set due dates.
WYVA high school uses a semester-based approach where students are required to earn a passing grade on their assignments and online lessons. Due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success.
Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous Class Connect sessions, along with completing coursework, will help students be successful.
WYVA students must comply with all Wyoming-mandated testing requirements.
