See below for ways to support your online student this summer.

In order to receive communications regarding your AVA registration and enrollment and to communicate with your virtual teacher, you must use your Atlanta Public Schools student email address.   Please contact your local school counselor to get your email address. Using your APS email will ensure all communication reaches you in a timely manner.  Parents are also required to include an email address to receive ongoing communication.

Students can see a tutorial on accessing your APS email by clicking this here.

While the coursework is primarily online, AVA courses are similar to traditional face-to-face classes. Students complete lesson activities, homework, engage in class discussions, and take tests. We are committed to ensuring APS student success in AVA. Teachers will communicate grade progress bi-weekly and maintain learning plans for students that are struggling, and they will hold weekly online tutorials. In addition to these things, course instructors have required office hours. During this time they are available to assist students and address any individual questions or concerns.

Students are required to login daily for an average of 20-24 hours each week.  For AVA courses taken outside of the summer blended learning experience students are responsible for providing their own technology.

All enrolled students must attend a mandatory Atlanta Virtual Academy Orientation. AVA Summer Orientation will be held at the locations and times below.

Monday, June 9, 2014 – Grady HS (9am-11am)

Monday June 9, 2014 – Carver HS (1pm – 3:00pm)
