May 12, 2021

EUFAULA, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alabama Virtual Academy at Eufaula City Schools (ALVA-ECS), an online public school serving students in grades K-12 throughout the state, will celebrate the Class of 2021 during a commencement ceremony on Friday, May 14th.

Collectively, the Class of 2021 reports it has been accepted to trade schools, colleges, and universities across the country, including: the University of Alabama, Jefferson State Community College, Alabama State University, Wallace Community College, Troy University, Stillman College, Auburn University at Montgomery, Millsaps College, and Tuskegee University.

“Each and every day, our talented students demonstrate the highest levels of diligence and perseverance,” said ALVA Head of School Dr. Melissa Stokke Larson. “Their dedication to the learning process—a skill they honed in online school—will serve them wherever they go.”

Students enroll in ALVA for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting. ALVA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music as well as a host of electives. These live virtual classes are taught by Alabama-certified teachers.
