Summer Program Details 
Summer school with NCVPS is a fast-paced program. An entire 18-week course is taught in just 8 weeks. Students will spend 3-5 hours each day, Monday through Friday, working on their courses, and just like at a traditional school, there is often work over the weekend, too.

See our Summer School Guide for complete program details.

Accessibility Statement
The North Carolina Virtual Public School is continually striving to improve our courses for all students, ensuring courses are accessible to everyone. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns regarding the accessibility of a course please do not hesitate to reach out to the NCVPS teacher, or to the NCVPS Director of Exceptional Children Services, Sherry Bell. 

If you are aware that a student has course accessibility needs prior to the start of the semester, it would be very beneficial to discuss with Sherry Bell so that our team can ensure that the student has the access needed to the course content. Examples of accessibility options may include captioning for videos, or transcripts needed for audio.
