California families interested in alternative school options must
submit application before state’s open enrollment period closes February
SIMI VALLEY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–California
Virtual Academies (CAVA), 10 independent online public schools, are
currently accepting applications for the second semester of the 2016-17
school year for students in grades K-12. Families considering California
Virtual Academies must submit an application before the open enrollment
deadline of Feb. 8, 2017, for high school students or by Feb. 15, 2017,
for grades K-8. Submitting an open enrollment application does not
commit students to enrolling at CAVA for the second semester, but it
provides them the option to do so.
“California Virtual Academies provide students with a high-quality,
tuition-free school alternative to the traditional brick and mortar
school,” said April Warren, California Virtual Academies Head of School.
“The virtual school serves the needs of many students – those who are
advanced learners, those who are seeking relief from bullying, and those
who need a more accommodating schedule in order to nurture an
extracurricular pursuit or balance their education with necessary
Students with California Virtual Academies attend both live and recorded
class sessions that are accessed online, enabling students and their
teachers to engage and interact as if they were sitting together in a
traditional classroom. Students also complete schoolwork using hands-on
educational materials that are shipped to their home.
Each student is supported by a California-credentialed teacher who
monitors student progress while providing professional insight and
instruction. Teachers communicate with students via phone, email and the
online classroom technology in order to provide an individualized
approach that helps prepare students for career or college success.
Teachers aim to establish a partnership with parents, so the students
benefit from a strong network of support.
Families are encouraged to take the necessary steps to ensure they have
access to an effective educational option for their students next school
year. CAVA will host several online and in-person events to help parents
learn more about the program.
