Welcome to Distance Learning! 

    UA offers a variety of online learning opportunities to students in grades 9-12 during the school year and over the summer. We currently offer courses through NC Virtual Public School (NCVPS) and South Piedmont Community College (SPCC). 

    NC Virtual Public School (NCVPS) is a virtual state school that offers online courses to North Carolina students. By virtue of their online course delivery, students from all areas of the state have access to courses and highly qualified teachers in subjects that may not be available at their local school.
