Alamance Virtual School

Alamance Virtual School
  • Alamance-Burlington Schools is committed to personalized learning for all students. As growing needs emerge, the district is responding to students and families who would like to continue with virtual learning with the launch of the new Alamance Virtual School (AVS) for middle and high school students. Please reach out to the office of the Chief Secondary Officer at 336-438-4110 if you have questions.



    Alamance-Burlington Schools (ABSS) would like to gauge parent/student interest about the possibility of adding an elementary option (grades K-5) to our new Alamance Virtual School (grades 6-12) that will be opening in the Fall of 2021. The K-5 virtual school option may be of interest to parents and students who would prefer an alternative to in-person learning. If you feel that virtual learning may be of interest for your K-5 student, please complete this brief survey by Wednesday, May 5. If you have more than one elementary student, please complete a survey for each child. 


    Take the survey to show your interest in a K-5 virtual school option.
