Students From Arkansas Virtual Academy To Be Celebrated with the In-Person Prom & Graduation Ceremony They Earned

May 12, 2022

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- After two years of questions and distractions, the students from Arkansas Virtual Academy (ARVA), an online public school serving K-12 students throughout the state, will celebrate its graduates with an in-person prom and commencement ceremony this weekend.

Both the prom and graduation will take place at the Statehouse Convention Center. ARVA will graduate approximately 320 students. Details for the graduation can be found below or on ARVA’s Facebook page.

“I know some families are still struggling and last two years have not been easy. But for one day, let the students have their shining moment, the recognition of all their hard work, a celebration of their future, and a fun time dancing to boot,” said ARVA Head of School Amy Johnson. “We’re so happy they made it to this point and look forward to seeing what they do next.”

Prior to the pandemic, students enrolled in virtual school for a number of reasons—some were looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others were looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting.

ARVA is inviting all families and friends worldwide to join the celebration. Details of the prom and graduation ceremonies are as follows:
