Virtual Arkansas Concurrent Credit 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.

    Virtual Arkansas' concurrent campus, Arkansas Early College High School, provides opportunities for students to earn college credit while simultaneously earning high school credits. We partner with the University of Arkansas at Monticello and Arkansas Tech University to provide college credit for courses offered. The following courses are available for concurrent credit through the concurrent credit campus:Comp I and II, U.S. History I and II, World Civ I and II, Spanish I and II, Oral Communication, Art Appreciation, College Math, and College Algebra. These courses are listed on the Arkansas Course Transfer System; therefore, college credits earned for these can be transferred to any public college or university in Arkansas.

    All instructors maintain current Arkansas teacher certification and meet the state qualifications for teaching concurrent classes. Each instructor also has required approval from UAM and ATU to teach concurrent courses offered.

    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.
