Course Questions

We offer over 150 courses including standard, core, honors, Advanced Placement, CTE, world languages, arts, physical education, credit recovery, OCS, and mastery.
We believe we have the highest quality online courses in the country. Our courses are designed by teams that include some of the best subject-area teachers in the state. We use the Quality Matters (QM) rubric as the foundation for our courses. QM is the industry standard in certifying online courses. Therefore, our courses are both robust and rigorous. They meet all the North Carolina standards. They are not designed for quick and easy credit. Designed for mastery.

NCVPS is a support organization. All of our departments support both students, parents, and schools in their NCVPS courses.

Students have support from their NCVPS teachers, our Virtual Support Center, the Peer Tutoring Center, and their school's e-learning advisor. We also have supports for parents and mentors. Visit our Student Help page for the full details.

Grade Questions

Yes. NCVPS sends student grades directly to the student's local school. The local school awards credit and provides the transcript. This is done to maintain the security of a student's private information. Contact the e-learning advisor or guidance counselor at the local school for additional grade details.
Please contact the advisor at your son/daughter's school and have them open an online ticket. Due to state and federal regulations, we have to correspond with officials at the local school with grade issues or personal issues. As soon as we receive the ticket from the school, we will try our best to resolve the issue.

NCAA

Yes, our courses do meet NCAA standards. You can see the approved list of NCVPS courses on the NCAA website and searching STATE: North Carolina, CITY: Raleigh; SCHOOLS: North Carolina Virtual Pub Sch. If you are a school and need more information on how to document the course on a student's transcript, the following Quick Reference Guide (QRG) shows the NCAA approval process.
NCVPS does not provide transcripts because the school who enrolled the student in the online course is considered the North Carolina "school of record" and awards the credit for the student. If they are requesting the transcript, please go back to the North Carolina school who enrolled the student and ask them to provide a transcript indicating the student took the online course with NCVPS. The school has been provided information on how to record this information so that the NCAA will accept this information without asking for further information from the student. The North Carolina school must make sure they designate that the online course is from NCVPS for example - Math I and not just ONLINE Math I.
The North Carolina Virtual Public School is listed as an approved school on the website. You can find NCVPS by using the following listing for our school: North Carolina Virtual Pub Sch
No, you must send this form directly to the North Carolina school that enrolled you into the NCVPS Course. NCVPS does not provide transcripts since we are a supplemental program and not considered the North Carolina "school of record".
