The North Carolina Virtual Public School is a supplemental service to the public schools of North Carolina. Students enroll through their local public school, grades are reported to their public school, and their school awards credit. The courses use learning management and collaborative software to maximize student interaction in each class. NCVPS teachers use the latest technologies to engage students as well as prepare them to be career and college ready. The North Carolina Virtual Public School has served over 175,000 middle and high school students since its initial launch in the summer of 2007.
