K-12 Virtual Learning Program

 Español  |  Монгол  |  አማርኛ  |  العربية

Virtual-onepageAPS is offering a new selection window in ParentVUE, June 21-June 27, for Virtual Learning Program families who want to switch their students to in-person learning for the fall. Families ready to make the change are strongly encouraged to do so during this window, as schools are finalizing staffing and schedules for the new school year. This information will help administrators ensure a strong start for all students.

See our Frequently Asked Questions, below, for more information about making the switch.


APS will offer a separate K-12 Virtual Learning Program during the 2021-22 school year to serve students who, for a variety of reasons, choose to learn remotely. Students will carry a full course-load and attend all classes online. Students enrolled in the program will maintain connection and alignment with their school of record for reporting, student services, extracurricular activities, and graduation.  Pre-K will not be offered in this model.
