How it works

    RVA will utilize Edgenuity’s curriculum which is aligned to Common Core academic standards.

    This curriculum is developed by Pennsylvania certified and highly qualified teachers to meet our district’s expectations. The program is easy to navigate and is student-centered.

    The courses include web-based curriculum with materials, highly qualified teachers, and a proprietary technology platform specifically designed for each grade level education (Grades K-12).

    Everything is online:

    • It works like a traditional school except curriculum is online

    • Log-in and access your courses from home, on-site with a teacher, the public library, or anywhere you have internet connectivity

    • Live state-certified instructors are available for on-demand student support!

    • Materials & equipment are provided
