How many of my children can I enroll in California Virtual Academies?

Because the 10 California Virtual Academy schools provide the lesson plans and educational materials needed for TK–12, many parents find it easy to enroll multiple children in the program. (Note: Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.)

What does it cost to attend one of the 10 California Virtual Academies?

Each of the 10 California Virtual Academies is an independent public charter school program, and as such families do not pay tuition for their children to attend. California Virtual Academies loan students a computer system and provide all instructional materials for the program. However, common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.

What is the attendance policy?

Students are expected to complete the California requirements of 180 days of instruction.

Can I take a vacation during the school year?

The school calendar includes school "holidays" or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. If a student skips a day during the week, he or she will be marked absent. Vacation is not an approved reason for absence in the state of California.
