My Choices. My Success. My SDPC.
Pickens County Virtual Academy offers full-time online learning opportunities for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade!
Starting in the 2020-2021 school year, we are expanding our virtual program to accommodate students who may not be ready to return to face-to-face instruction due to coronavirus concerns and to continue to serve students of all ages who have found online learning to be a good fit during the pandemic.
Unlike other online education options, Pickens County Virtual Academy allows students to be taught by a teacher from their own community, facilitates a smooth transition back to traditional schooling in SDPC, and allows graduates to still earn a diploma from their local high school. Pickens County Virtual Academy’s curriculum aligns to South Carolina College & Career Ready Standards. Students will be supported with teachers, devices, and software provided by SDPC.
To address enrollment needs for virtual learning and learning from home, the School District of Pickens County has partnered with three organizations to offer virtual learning opportunities for students in 5K-12th grades.
