Virtual Learning in Peninsula School District

Global Virtual Academy (GVA) is now available to students K-12, including middle school!


Families can now choose our virtual learning option for children in grades K through 12 in Peninsula School District. 

This program will serve those who find success with online learning and for families looking for an option beyond the brick and mortar school. 

Students in this program may participate in athletics and activities through their neighborhood school, but they will be enrolled in GVA.

GVA will be administered in two levels:

  • GVA Elementary (K-5) will be administered through Discovery Elementary School.

  • GVA Secondary (6-12) will be administered through The Academies at Henderson Bay.  More information about each level can be found below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can students switch back-and-forth between virtual and in-person learning during the school year?

Families who choose this option for learning will be asked to remain in this program for the 2021-22 school year. We will reconsider this requirement throughout the school year as we respond to changes in the pandemic.

What is the status of options for middle school students?

We are offering a virtual school option for students in middle school.  Students will participate in an advisory class to help them set goals and be successful in the online learning environment.  Students will take classes through our online provider, K-12 Fuel Education.
