Now Enrolling for 3rd Quarter

  • Now Enrolling
    Interested in attending the Reading Virtual Academy? We are currently enrolling students for the 3rd Quarter of the 2020-21 school year. Current RVA students who want to remain in the program do not need to reapply.

    There will be no online application form while the district is in remote learning. Instead, families can contact Amanda Geffert, RVA School Counselor, at 484-258-7101 x60147 to schedule an orientation appointment.

    During orientations, the school counselor will meet with interested parents and students; provide a detailed description of program; and explain program expectations. Orientations must be held by Friday, January 8, 2021 for students to enroll for the 3rd Quarter.

    Once students are enrolled at RVA, they must remain at RVA for the duration of the spring semester.

    If approved, you would then begin classes at your home school building on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.

    Once students transition back to their home school building, they must remain there for the during of the spring semester.
