CTE 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 students in Arkansas and utilize Arkansas licensed instructors. We are not an online high school or a diploma-granting institution but are a resource for supplementing education for students.

Working closely with the Arkansas Department of Education and the Arkansas Department of Career and Technical Education, the Career and Technical Education campus of Virtual Arkansas, located at Dawson Education Cooperative, provides a career-focused curriculum addressing both national and state standards within the following nationally recognized career clusters: Architecture & Construction; Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Arts, A/V Technology & Communications; Business Management & Administration; Education and Training; Finance; Government & Public Administration; Health Sciences; Hospitality and Tourism; Human Services; Information Technology; Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security; Marketing Sales & Services; Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics. While enrolled in one of the forty-plus CTE courses offered with a teacher, students gain a solid foundation of career awareness and explore opportunities found within their chosen career pathway.

Virtual Arkansas full-service courses provide access to an Arkansas-certified instructor and aligned curriculum within a 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 engaging and interactive online curriculum. Two days a week, students are engaged with their instructor in live synchronous sessions. Our courses are online courses but we provide access to the instructor on a regular basis.

IHE Partnerships

We have partnered with UACCM to bring another career opportunity for high school students.  Students can now earn a Certificate of Proficiency in Surveying.  To receive the Certificate of Proficiency, students will need to take the following courses:  Survey of Business; Composition I, Introduction to CAD and Surveying Software, Plane Surveying, Calculator Solutions, and Understanding OSHA Regulations.   For more information on the program and admissions process, visit the UACCM High School Concurrent page.

We have also partnered with Henderson State University to provide a career pathway for students interested in Aviation. Students who complete Aviation I, II, and III with us will receive, upon enrolling with HSU, seven hours of articulated credit. For more information on the program, contact Christie Lewis, CTE Campus Principal for Virtual Arkansas.
