Fauquier County Public Schools is planning to open a full-time virtual academy for students entering grades K-12 who wish to learn online for the 2021-2022 school year. The FCPS Virtual Academy is intended to function as an additional, separate K through 12th grade program.

The FCPS Virtual Academy will give students the opportunity to take courses and earn credits virtually while still receiving instruction from knowledgeable and caring FCPS teachers. Virtual Academy students will continue to be enrolled in their designated base school and will be able to participate in athletics and activities at that school.

FCPS Personalized Learning Options

FCPS is committed to ensuring all students receive what they need to succeed. Our success in meeting all students' needs is evidenced in our outstanding graduation rates - 95.5% overall and record-high rates in four subgroup categories. We know that doesn't happen by chance, that happens by design, and it happens by offering personalized learning paths and supports to reach our entire student population.

While we believe that face-to-face, in-person instruction is best for most of our students, it is not best for all. Some students thrive in a virtual learning environment and would benefit from a stand-alone virtual program. The FCPS Virtual Academy will serve as another personalized learning path to provide an engaging, student-centered alternative learning experience where traditional barriers of time, place, and availability are removed.
