Virginia students soon may be able to get their public high school diploma without ever stepping inside a school. The state Department of Education this fall will offer on a first-come basis a program offering a full-time, online high school. If the pilot, open to 100 students across the state, proves successful, officials could make the program permanent and open it to additional students. “We are excited to offer this opportunity to high school students, especially those with the potential for thriving in a non-traditional instructional setting,” said Steven R. Staples, state superintendent of public instruction. “This expansion of the Virtual Virginia program provides more choice and flexibility to students seeking a high school diploma.”
