Welcome to the Northampton Virtual Academy!
The Northampton County Schools Virtual Academy provides virtual courses available to accepted students in grades K-12. The courses are made available through a partnership with Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy will include core, elective, AP, Global Language, and Career and Technical Education courses.
Beginning in the 2021-2022 School Year, the Northampton Virtual Academy will be a stand-alone school. Each full-time student will be officially enrolled in the school once officially accepted. Students will be eligible to be part of any school athletic team, band, club, or any school-sponsored activity at the school in their attendance zone.
We are in the process of updating all documentation for the next school year, including the handbook, forms, course registration, and more. Please check this website often for updates.
