    experience in tailoring the online virtual curriculum to the individual needs of
our students. With a long track record of success and an ever-increasing number of graduates every year, WMVA has proven that virtual learning can be done the right way when students are given the tools and support that they need to succeed in the virtual environment. With the opportunity to work completely from home or at one of our fully-staffed computer labs on-site, WMVA’s emphasis on flexibility and individualized learning programs puts the virtual school ahead of the online curve.
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 Career Prep class teaching students real-life scenarios; FAFSA preparation to assist students in applying for college grants and scholarships; Career Day connecting
With our central office being located inside the Full Blast building, WMVA of- fers so many exciting extracurricular op- portunities for students. Opportunities like having access to a water park, fitness cen- ter, 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 counsel- ing sessions, group counseling sessions, and emotional support all help to seal the uniqueness and success of WMVA.
Despite the turbulence of the last
year, WMVA was able to award over 50 diplomas to our students last year. This year, we had more students graduate after the Fall semester than ever before and
we only expect this trend to continue to rise as students and parents discover our program.
