DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- North Carolina Virtual Academy (NCVA), an online public charter school authorized by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, will celebrate the Class of 2021 during a virtual commencement ceremony on Friday, June 11th.

The graduation will celebrate the achievements of 188 students.

“Many of our students have overcome tremendous obstacles this year,” said NCVA’s Interim Head of School Marcia Simmons. “We’re so proud to celebrate their accomplishments and give them a well-earned sendoff.”

Students enroll in NCVA 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.
