Getting to Know NCVPS

Greeting, parents and students! We have assembled a number of resources on our Student-Parent Handbook page to help you become familiar with NCVPS and to help you be a successful online student.

To begin with, we have three videos for you to watch. The first is a short animated video that will introduce you to our program. Next, we have a video that shows a day in the life of an NCVPS student. We finish with a detailed look at how our classes work.
