ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Students at New Mexico Virtual Academy (NMVA) an accredited, tuition-free, online public school, began their 2016-2017 school year on August 10, excited for a place where they can learn in ways that work best for them. NMVA is a program of the Farmington Municipal School district and is open to New Mexico students statewide.
Good luck to students at NMVA, who started school on August 10!
At NMVA, an individualized approach gives students in grades 6 through 12 an exceptional learning experience. The online environment allows students to work at their own pace, giving them time to progress faster in subjects at which they excel, while spending more time on subjects and lessons where they need more help. Through a combination of online instruction, hands-on curriculum and the support of state-licensed teachers, NMVA gives each student the opportunity and support they need to reach graduation.
“Helping students achieve their dreams is our goal,” said Lynn Barr, director of operations at New Mexico Virtual Academy. “Everything we do at NMVA is about making sure our students are successful both inside and outside the classroom so that when they graduate, students are prepared to succeed.”
NMVA students are required to successfully complete credits in the areas of English, math, science, social studies, fine arts, physical education, career and technical education and general electives. To help students meet these requirements, teachers offer guidance and support, and interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. This ensures that students and their families feel supported yet challenged in their education in a way that may be different for every student.
Earlier this summer, NMVA challenged enrolled families to prevent summer ‘brain drain’ by offering students free access to LearnBop, a self-paced solution that simulates a one-on-one, personalized math tutoring experience. The award-winning online program will continue to be available free of charge throughout the fall and can be used alongside the regular math curriculum to build math skills or prepare for high-level exams.
NMVA has a wide variety of dual credit courses available to students starting as early as the summer after their 9th grade year, concurrently receiving college and high school credit.
