~ Attention Graduating Seniors and Proud Parents! ~

Graduation day seems off in the future, but it will be here before we know it! This is a very exciting time for your senior and for your family. Idaho Virtual Academy looks forward to honoring your student and their accomplishments at commencement ceremonies across the state in May.

We are already planning for the BIG DAY and need your help to be sure that all seniors are included and celebrated.

To that end, we need you to do these FOUR things:


Let us know if your son or daughter will be participating in a graduation ceremony, which one, and how many family members and guests you expect to attend.


The Senior Survey will act as your student's diploma order and is required, even if your student is not planning to attend a ceremony.

Click on the "SENIOR SURVEY" button below to complete.

2. Send your Senior Picture

Please email your student's senior picture to Mrs. Percifield. The picture will be included in the senior slideshow and graduation program.

Deadline Extended! Please send by May 1st.

3. Send your Baby or toddler picture

We love to see your student's baby or toddler pic! They put smiles on everyone's faces! Please email the baby picture to Mrs. Percifield so it can be included in the senior slideshow.

Deadline Extended! Please send by May 1st.
