On Friday, June 8, 2018, North Carolina Virtual Academy (NCVA)’s Class of 2018 celebrated an important milestone in their education, and in their school’s history. The 40 students were the first to graduate from the online school!
General Assembly Representative D. Craig Horn delivered the keynote address at the commencement ceremony at Kings Park International Church in Durham, where he was welcomed by Kevin P. Chavous, K12’s President of Academics, Policy and Schools.
“NCVA is preparing the next generation of North Carolina’s leaders to embark with confidence on their next chapter,” said Representative Horn. “The Class of 2018 has been set up for success thanks to this supportive online learning community.”
Members of the graduating class reported having been offered more than $270,000 in scholarships to attend college and universities across the country. Class valedictorian Tyler Milton was selected by the North Carolina Veterans Commission for the State Veterans Scholarship, which includes a full four-year scholarship to any public institution in the state. Salutatorian Vance Knight plans to attend Texas A&M University to study business administration.
Graduating seniors report having been accepted to colleges and universities including Campbell University, Eastern Carolina University, Pace University, Radford University, St. Martin’s University, Texas A&M University, University of the Pacific, and campuses across the University of North Carolina system.
Congratulations and best of luck to the NCVA Class of 2018!
