About Sturgeon Public Virtual Academy

At Sturgeon Public Schools we are dedicated to providing instruction to support the skills your child needs in order to be successful. The Sturgeon Virtual Academy is a new program created as an option for families that would like to keep their children at home, while learning online in a high-quality education program.

Sturgeon Public Virtual Academy is a structured learning environment where students engage with their teacher(s) to learn the subject curriculum through an online medium. Although students will be working from home, they will be able to build relationships with their teacher(s) and grade-level peers. Connections such as these are important for the health and wellbeing of children.

Students enrolled in the Virtual Academy will work as part of a grade-level cohort with an assigned online teacher(s). Students will take part in online classes and daily learning activities, including both synchronous and asynchronous learning. The length of these activities will depend on which grade (or division) the student is in, with the expectation that students are engaged in learning activities for a full day, similar to in-person schools. It is vital that students are available to connect with their teacher every day, during regular school hours. They also will be expected to complete asynchronous learning activities during times they are not engaged with the teacher. 

Our team of educators is working on developing an education experience with Sturgeon Public Schools students in mind. More information will be posted as it becomes available. Parents wish to register their child in the Virtual Academy are asked to please indicate that choice when completing the Registration Page in PowerSchool.
