Welcome to NCVPS!

Current and future students, take a few minutes to learn about your state’s virtual high school. We offer complete, state-approved online courses to middle school and high school students throughout all of North Carolina. We also have classes for private school and home school students.

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.

After you watch the video, see the resources that we have below. They will all help you be a successful online student.

Thank you for checking out NCVPS. We will see you online!
