What grades are offered by Maine Virtual Academy?
Maine Virtual Academy currently offers full-time enrollment for grades 7–12.
Will my child have the same graduation opportunities as students in traditional public schools?
Yes, we are a public school in Maine, so students can earn a diploma issued by Maine Virtual Academy based upon successful completion and mastery of course content.
Do you provide curriculum for special needs children?
Depending on a child's IEP, we can tailor our curriculum to meet your student's needs. To discuss your child's needs with us, please contact our office, and we will put you in touch with our special education team.
How do students interact socially?
Throughout the year, students will be invited to participate in school outings, field trips (e.g., to historical sites, museums, zoos), picnics, and other social events. We expect local clusters of students and parents to get together on a regular basis in their areas. We are also exploring new ways to interact socially using the powerful reach of the internet. The online Family Directory provides a way for families to network with families in their region of the state. With online discussions and forums, new types of communities can be formed that are based not on geography and place but on shared interests.
Will this program intrude into my home?
There are no home visits as part of the program, unless you ask your teacher to come to your home (completely optional), and there are no cameras or any other intrusions into your home. This school was created to help your child obtain a first-class education and serve your family's needs. If you ever feel that it is not right for your family or your child, you can withdraw at any time.
