PCVA

As we plan ahead for the 2022-2023 school year, applications for Pickens County Virtual Academy will remain open until Friday, Mar 18, 2022.

We will continue to offer PCVA as an option for students in K5 through 12th grade. Our district has been pleased to learn that PCVA has not only served an important safety purpose during the pandemic, but that many families have asked to continue in PCVA for academic reasons as well. Some of our families have found that their children thrive academically in the virtual program. We’ve also found that some of our families and older students have unique circumstances that make virtual learning a good fit.

Enrollment in Pickens County Virtual Academy for the 2022-2023 school year opened on Nov. 29, 2021 and will close on March 18, 2022. Space is limited in PCVA. If you are interested in this option, it is important to apply now so that your student is counted in the available space.
