What is West Virginia Virtual School?

Virtual learning enables students to maintain their connection with Wood County Schools while engaging in a county-approved online learning program. West Virginia public school students have the option to enroll in county virtual schools, which are free of charge and can be accessed either full time or part time, based on the students' specific requirements. Certified teachers from West Virginia will provide instruction to the students, ensuring that the virtual school experience matches the same level of educational excellence and rigor as a traditional classroom setting.


It's important to note that through collaboration with Wood County Schools, homeschool students can also take advantage of virtual course offerings.

High School

High schoolers have two options for off-campus learning.
