Let's Start a VLA PTA!

We have been working with the 16th District PTA President Penny Christian to get our PTA up and going! In order to start a PTA, we have to have parents and teachers who are interested in serving as PTA Officers. If this sounds like something you would like to do, please complete this form and we will follow up with more information for how to get involved! Thank you for your continued support of VLA!

FCPS Summer Ignite!

We are in the process of making decisions about summer learning and we would very much appreciate your responses to these survey questions as we plan. If you have more than one child at Virtual Learning Academy, please complete a separate survey for each child. Please submit your response before March 31st.

Watch this video to see why our students love VLA!

Galileo, MAP testing & CogAT/IOWA Assessment

As we wrap up the school year, all FCPS students will have a number of opportunities to show what they know through various assessments. Below is the general assessment calendar for the remainder of the school year. Be on the lookout for more specific dates and times from your child's teacher. Please set aside the scheduled times for your child to complete the assessments with their class, as the test results will provide information about how students are succeeding in each subject area.
