    About AVA 

    Albertville City Schools is excited to offer a virtual learning experience for currently enrolled students in grades 9-12 who are zoned for Albertville City Schools. This option is available for students who wish to receive standards-based instruction in a virtual environment without attending classes in a traditional, face-to-face setting. This instructional model is suitable for highly motivated students who want to engage in educational experiences from home.  

    The virtual curriculum features courses in mathematics, science, language arts, world languages, social studies, and electives. In collaboration with the school counselor, AVA students will have the opportunity to select a virtual pathway to meet their individual learning goals. Students desiring a virtual, non-traditional learning environment are encouraged to apply.
