Virtual School Planning
New Online School Opening for Grades 6-12 in Fall 2022
Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, Kent School District (KSD) will offer a new, sustainable online school that expands our existing non-traditional choice school and programming options for students in grades 6-12. This new learning experience will be different than the remote and hybrid learning models previously offered and long withstand the COVID-19 pandemic.
Designing for Student Experience & Success
At Kent Virtual Academy (yet to be named), we envision students as the drivers of their learning experience and have designed this program around them. We will also partner with families, connecting them with school and community-based resources to support student success together. Explore our school model to learn more about our decidedly flexible option.
At this point, our school model is iterative based on community input and feedback. We are actively engaging with numerous stakeholder groups in a variety of ways. The design may evolve as we reflect the ideas of our students, families, staff, labor partners, and the larger KSD community.
All Learners Are Welcome
The school will offer built-in supports and cross-enrollment opportunities to ensure all learners can thrive in our new online environment. Principal Lear invites you to explore what Kent Virtual Academy has to offer your family.
To learn more, please explore our school model, review answers to frequently asked questions, attend a virtual drop-in session, and sign up for our email list to receive information in your inbox. If you’re ready to join our growing community, please enroll online today.
