While we have offered the Virtual Academy to middle and high school students since 2014, we are expanding the newly renamed ASD Virtual Campus to provide anytime/anywhere education to all K-12 students during the 2020-21 school year!

Over time, this innovative learning option has become increasingly popular among students and families, who appreciate its flexibility, rigor and focus on student success. Students can take part in ASD sports, clubs, prom, choir and a range of other extracurricular activities. Graduates receive an ASD diploma and can walk across the stage with their peers during our commencement ceremony.

Enrolling in the ASD Virtual Campus

Although ASD students will receive the first semester (Through February 1, 2020) of instruction virtually, the District is launching a full- scale virtual campus for all.  This experience will be one offered to families who prefer virtual learning to in-person instruction.   This means the Virtual Campus is available permanently! In order to ensure all students have the best Virtual Campus experience, please  use this form to register today and confirm that each child in your home has a device and wifi: ASD Virtual Campus Registration
