High School Curriculum
Curriculum that Unlocks Possibility
Arkansas Virtual Academy (ARVA) knows success is not a single destination, and the journey can take many turns. But no matter the path, we believe in unlocking every learner's potential by meeting them where they are and helping them reach their goals.
Explore Our Courses
As students move through middle school and into high school, their work becomes increasingly independent. High school courses are designed for students targeting a four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career.
Many high school courses are offered at three levels: on-level, honors, and Advanced Placement® (AP®).
In all three course levels, students:
Learn grade-level content
Complete coursework that might require writing or research projects
Tackle problems that require analytical thinking
In honors courses, students also:
Evaluate and synthesize information
Demonstrate more advanced writing skills
Participate in honors projects
In AP® courses, students prepare to take the AP® exam in a particular subject. Their AP® exam score may allow them to receive college credit, as determined by the college.
We also offer credit recovery courses for students who need to catch up.
Career Readiness at ARVA
Your teen can gain a competitive edge for the future—whether that includes college, a career, or both.

Students can choose from a broad range of courses in these career pathways:
- Agriculture Science and Technology

- Trade and Industry: Visual Arts
They can also prepare to take industry-recognized certification exams upon graduation.**
*The K12 high school catalog is a complete list of the high school courses K12 provides. While ARVA offers a comprehensive selection of courses, not every K12 high school course is available to ARVA students. Information on specific courses of study and available electives are provided upon enrollment. For details, please speak to an enrollment consultant during the enrollment process.
**Many Microsoft® Office certificates can be earned after completing one course. Other certificates require more classes to be better prepared, and students who attend Destinations for at least two years will have further exposure to career readiness education courses to be prepared for certification testing.
