NCVPS Overview

North Carolina Virtual Public Schools

Standard, Honors, and AP Credit

Program Overview

NCVPS is a unique program that offers high school students high school credit in an online environment. It offers a diverse range of online courses that can help schools personalize education in a variety of ways. NCVPS courses can help students earn advanced credit, explore interests, add flexibility to their schedule, or find new avenues for support on the road to graduation.


In order to qualify for standard or AP NCVPS courses, a student should have either a GPA above 3.0 OR the approval of an administrator/counselor, based on the endorsement of prior teachers. Students must also be self-motivated, demonstrate computer literacy and meet all prerequisites for the virtual course. Special offerings, such as OCS courses, will be subject to different qualifications.
