Welcome to the Natchitoches Virtual Academy! We are excited and looking forward to building a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential in our virtual academy. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both, home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s virtual education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. The middle school and high school years are a time for growth, challenge, and discovery. At Natchitoches Virtual Academy, we encourage students to participate fully in their home-based schools' activities, to take calculated risks, to be self-advocates, and to create lasting memories and relationships with peers and staff of both our school and their home-based schools. I am proud to be the principal of such an exciting, innovative, and dynamic school.
The foundation for our students’ success is based on the partnership among students, staff, and parents. Active parent participation is essential to our success. Parents can check academic progress regularly via our student progress center (https://jcampus.nat.k12.la.us/progress) and can access information about school events on our website. Our teachers will provide a nurturing environment in which students can learn, take risks, and thrive. Student work, in partnership with our parent community, has and will continue to support us to fulfill our school mission to connect with the community, parents, and our partner schools in Natchitoches Parish; customize learning to meet the needs of students; and complete grade progression and/or high school credits. Again, we are looking forward to working with each of you and your child/children this year. We believe that Together Everyone Achieves More. We are one team united for one common purpose – to educate our children. Our TEAM includes students, parents, teachers, and the community!
