The Northampton County Schools Virtual Academy has two (2) types of enrollments for students. Full-time students are enrolled at Northampton County Schools Virtual Academy taking a majority of all courses through the virtual academy supported by physical lab at the student’s official school site if necessary. Part-time students are enrolled at their regular school in Northampton County Schools, but they are taking courses via the Northampton County Schools Virtual Academy with all accountability data residing at the students’ full-time enrolled school.
