We would like to welcome our returning and new families. We will continue our work with families throughout Buncombe and surrounding counties to provide an opportunity for your students to engage in an online learning environment with our Buncombe County Schools community of educators, counselors, and specialists. 

As we approach the start of school we will welcome all students to Orientation/Device pickup at our new location. Our new home is located in the Birch Building which sits behind Haw Creek Elementary School (HCES). For this event please follow the BCSVA signs to park in the lower parking lot of Haw Creek Elementary School.

10 Bethesda Road - Asheville - 28805

Orientation/Device pickup schedule: During Orientation students will be issued their devices and work with their teachers on their first assignments of the year. For students 5th-12th, please arrive at your start time with headphones and plan to stay the full 2 hours. Grades K-4 will be a drop-in event. 

Please see the accompanying email that will be sent with this message for the Orientation/Device Pick-up schedule.

We look forward to seeing everyone in the days ahead as we kick-off the 2022-23 school year.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school at 828-255-5102.
