Workforce Ready Elective Now in the Registration System

Registration Updates
Registration System

Our PowerSchool EOY sync is complete. You should see your updated rosters now.

You will also see some programming updates in the registration system. OCS, IEP, and 504 are now mandatory fields for enrollment along with contact information. We would also like to collect AIG, LEP, and ESL data, too, but those fields are not mandatory. However, more data we have on the student, the better our teachers can support the student and personalize his or her learning.

Course Updates and Alerts

We have a Course Updates and Alerts web page that shows all of our course catalog updates for 2018-2019. See new additions to the catalog and courses that have been discontinued or have been pulled for revisions.
Virtual Open House - Aug. 14 & 16
NCVPS invites you to its 2018 Virtual Open House.

We have two dates: Tuesday, August 14, 11 AM - 12 PM or Thursday, August 16, 7 PM to 8 PM

See our Virtual Open House Announcement for more details and registration.
2018-2019 Updates
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.
