    Beginning with the 2021-2022 regular school year, Cabell County Schools is offering an off-campus virtual learning option.  Registration is now open for the newly established Cabell Virtual Learning Academy. More information and a link to sign up can be found in the “Families” section of the district’s website,  

    Cabell Virtual Learning Academy is a public-school program offering families a comprehensive option for providing a quality education from home. It is offered to students in kindergarten through the 12th grade.  

    "We are pleased to offer this exciting learning option to our students and families,” says Dr. Ryan Saxe, Cabell County Schools Superintendent. “The Cabell Virtual Learning Academy will provide students with quality, personalized instruction by highly-qualified West Virginia teachers, and in grades K-8, those teachers will be high-quality Cabell County teachers. For the student who generally performs better in a home setting, Cabell’s virtual school will provide the necessary structure and support needed to ensure they are successful and prepared for college or a career.”

    The Cabell Virtual Learning Academy offers flexibility to serve individual needs. Traditional home-school students may take courses through a part-time program.
