Accepted students will remain enrolled in Fauquier County Public Schools and the system’s teachers will lead the virtual classes.
Virtual students will have the opportunity to graduate with FCPS diplomas and to participate in extracurricular and co-curricular activities.
County public schools will open the fall term with five days a week of in-person learning. The new FCPS Virtual Academy will open to meet the needs of students who learn best in that environment, Superintendent David Jeck said.
“We are going to provide a great virtual program for our kids this fall, but it won’t be great for everyone,” Dr. Jeck added. “Before any parent chooses any virtual option, they need to consider how their kids learn best. Do they thrive in a virtual environment, or do they learn best in a face-to-face environment? Virtual instruction isn’t about convenience. It’s about how to serve students best.”
