Colorado Virtual Academy (COVA) is a tuition-free, online public charter school focused on helping students reach their full potential. We are dedicated to the proposition that all students are created equal and that every student should have the opportunity for a bright future. We know no two students are alike, and each student comes with his or her own abilities, talents, and learning styles, so why should education look the same for all students? We provide educational options and opportunities for students to achieve their full potential based on who the student is, rather than whom we think they should be. Through an environment that is supportive, encouraging, progressive, and adaptive, we focus on student success and provide hope and innovative educational change for student success – one student at a time.
At COVA, we believe that education is a partnership with parents in the education of their children, and we value their partnership, input, comments, and suggestions for improvement. We encourage communication with our parents and families to stay current with pertinent information related to school issues. Education, at its core, is not just an intellectual process. True education taps into all areas of a student’s being, helping him or her to develop as a whole person. As such, we believe that:
We are committed to ensuring that our focus is on student learning rather than teaching so that students are continually engaged in the learning process. We will challenge them to be creative, work independently, and think critically and analytically so they are ready to engage in the world around them. Our school provides student opportunities and options through an adaptive, encouraging, and innovative high-quality learning environment.
Most traditional schools are logistically unable to provide individualized curriculum that is truly customized to a student’s specific learning needs. In addition, traditional schools typically don’t have the resources to teach in a manner and at a pace that is optimal for each individual student. As a result, students who learn quickly may easily become bored, lose interest, or act out. Students who need more time to learn can often feel ashamed or embarrassed if they do not learn as quickly as their peers, resulting in poor performance and low self-esteem.
COVA is a member of ColoradoEd’s family of quality schools, and while there are a number of online schools available to students today, only ColoradoEd’s schools offer:
