I. WHAT IS THE NORTH CAROLINA VIRTUAL Private SCHOOL?
The North Carolina Virtual Private School (NCVPS) is committed to raising achievement and closing learning gaps with 21st century innovation by providing access to world class learning opportunities for all North Carolina students. We provide the vehicle for school districts to accomplish the State Board of Education's goals of producing 21st century learners, professionals, leaders, and systems by providing easily accessible, online learning opportunities for our state's most valuable resource: its children.
Our vision is to be a world class blended learning organization, and our mission is to provide skills, student support, and opportunities for 21st century learners to succeed in a globally competitive world. We offer over 103 high school courses that include classic, modular, mobile, and blended online services to North Carolina students in all 115 districts. The courses utilize learning management software to maximize student interaction in each class. Our courses are taught by highly qualified teachers who utilize video, interactive whiteboards, wikis, active worlds, and online discussion tools to engage 21st century learners.
We have created an opportunity for students to learn at a pace that fits their needs, not the needs of the school!
