The application is a short form that does not require all of the information necessary to process a student as a Buncombe County Schools student. This form does not commit you to enrollment in the school or guarantee admission but is merely the first step in identifying a compatible instructional fit for your student. Our virtual school is designed to provide a blend of asynchronous and synchronous core instruction. Be sure to consider and discuss as a family whether online learning may connect to your vision of instruction.

Please take time to work through this application with your student as our school is designed to include a parent/guardian as the at-home learning coach. 


Starting March 1st, open enrollment will begin for Kindergarten-12th grade for the 2024-2025 school year.

*Kindergarten students must register at their base schools before applying for BCSVA.
