Virtual Arkansas Alternative Education Campus

    We are an Arkansas-based program that is implemented through a partnership between the Arkansas Department of Education and the Arkansas Education Service Cooperatives. We provide an array of quality digital courses to public school students in Arkansas and utilize Arkansas licensed instructors. Virtual Arkansas serves approximately 200 districts and over 30,000 student registrations. We are not an online high school or a diploma-granting institution but are a resource for supplementing education for public school students. Students who are enrolled in a public school may be enrolled in Virtual Arkansas courses by the local school administration.

    The AE Campus of Virtual Arkansas provides a meaningful supplement to research-based intervention models implemented at the district level. This campus provides flexible registration, caring instructors, personalized curriculum, and on-going district support in an effort to assist districts in renewing the hope of at-risk students for brighter futures.

    Virtual Arkansas full service courses provide access to an Arkansas certified instructor and aligned curriculum within a modified blended learning environment. We utilize web-based applications to deliver courses in an equitable, efficient, and effective manner. Three days a week, students are given access to an interactive online curriculum. Two days a week, students are engaged with their instructor using a web-based application that transmits audio, video, content, and chats. Our courses are online courses but we provide access to the instructor on a regular basis. The full service option mirrors the local school day and fits into any bell schedule.

    This campus also provides support of a blended learning model in Arkansas AE programs. We provide access to AE content and training/support for local AE teachers implementing our virtual courses in the face-to-face setting. All Core Campus courses are available for AE students. Career Ready 101 is also available for AE Students.
