Each year we are adding more and more programs at WMVA, administra- tion and staff look to expand to meet the needs of today’s students. Past successes include; a face-to-face College and Ca- reer Prep class teaching students real-life scenarios, FAFSA preparation to assist students in applying for college grants and scholarships, Career Day connecting students to mentors, graduation audits as teachers assist students to take control
of their own graduation plans, SAT
With our central office being located inside the Full Blast building, WMVA offers so many exciting extracurricular opportunities for students. Opportunities like having access to a water park, fitness center, and basketball/volleyball courts. Also, access to live, highly qualified educators and even a Master School Social Worker; whom provides a variety of services such as, but not limited to: individual counseling sessions, group counseling sessions, and emotional sup- port all help to seal the uniqueness and success of WMVA.
During these challenging times, WMVA was able to award over 50 of our students Diplomas this year. Already this summer the staff have been working hard with many of our students doing work over the summer while making sure our program is ready for our virtual families this next school year.
