What We

Our Mission

JVA Mascot

Jeffco's 21st Century Virtual Academy opened in 2009 with 190 students. We have since grown to serve over 1,000 families throughout Colorado through both part time and full time enrollment. 

In 2013, our students chose our school mascot, the Online Otters. Ollie sports our purple and gold colors while sharing tips for online learners. He cheers us on as we reach our goals and creates fun social events for students and families.

We offer educational options for students who reside in Colorado and are in grades 6-12. We are proud to offer 3 programs: Middle School, High School and TAG (Targeted Actions to Graduation). We also provide credit recovery classes to help students get back on track for graduation and we partner with many other Jeffco schools to enroll groups of students in advanced level or other classes they are unable to provide.

We are fully staffed with with administrators, counselors, liaisons, office staff, special education department, technology coach, interventionist and TAG coordinator. We have over 40 full time, highly qualified Jeffco teachers who take th
e state-approved curriculum and create effective lessons for students in a virtual setting.

Students can choose from a variety of courses and participate in group activities and events both virtually and face to face. We have Back to School Nights, Fall and Spring Conferences (virtual and face to face options), parent help sessions, etc. We are just like any other Jeffco Public School, we're just based primarily online! 

School Profile

We believe where a student lives should not determine their access to a quality education. A world-class education is delivered through rigor, relevance, and relationships. Jeffco's graduation requirements, responsive instruction, and access to options such as Post-Secondary Enrollment, Advanced Placement courses, help to ensure a rigorous education. Jeffco's 21st Century Academy will expose students to challenging course work with academic and social support.

Education must be relevant to our students in order for it to have meaning. Online learning in itself is relevant to today's students who have generally been exposed to computers and the Internet as part of their daily lives. Our classes require students to apply their knowledge, concepts and skills to solve real-world problems.

Relationships are the glue that binds students and staff together in one common learning community. Through various learning connections, both online and face to face, students will experience more than just a series of online courses at Jeffco's 21st Century Virtual Academy; they will be part of a community of learners.
