We are excited to announce that for the coming school year, Pickens County Virtual Academy will offer full-time online learning opportunities for Kindergarten through 12th grade! We are expanding our virtual program to accommodate students who may not be ready to return to face-to-face instruction due to coronavirus concerns and to continue to serve students of all ages who have found online learning to be a good fit during the pandemic.

Unlike other online education options, Pickens County Virtual Academy allows students to be taught by a teacher from their own community, facilitates a smooth transition back to traditional schooling in SDPC, and allows graduates to still earn a diploma from their local high school. Pickens County Virtual Academy’s curriculum aligns to South Carolina College & Career Ready Standards. Students will be supported with teachers, devices, and software provided by SDPC.
