WAVA aims to serve students that can benefit from the unique nature of online coursework and attending school from home. This includes all levels of students - from advanced, to "on track" to those that may be struggling. WAVA also serves competitive athletes or performers looking to balance a full practice schedule, special needs students, homebound students dealing with health issues, students with past discipline or behavioral challenges, military family students and many students who are simply seeking an alternative to the traditional brick and mortar school setting.

"You join a vibrant, supportive learning community of dedicated teachers, support staff and parents committed to seeing each and every student achieve up to their potential. Without a doubt, online learning requires student and family dedication and commitment, but the rewards of student growth and academic improvement are well worth the effort!"
