How do I enroll my student?
Students and Parents interested in BTVS must meet with the virtual school director before enrollment begins. In this meeting the student and parents will learn about the entire program to be sure that this is going to be the right ft for their student. From there, parents can complete the necessary forms to enroll their student into the BTVS program.
Can my student take classes part time at BTVS?
Absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. Students can now take up to two classes through BTVS while still attending their traditional school or home school. Students who take part time classes often come to us because they are looking for something that is not offered at their traditional school like a specific language course, elective, or Honors/Advanced Placement course.
