To plan an effective and realistic online educational program, students and parents should take into consideration the student’s ability, career goals, interests, and the advantages of taking online courses through the district operated virtual education component (shown in the following section). They should study the entire guidebook looking for all relevant information, and they should carefully read the course descriptions. They should also consider their student’s academic records for the past several years. While grades received previously in middle school or through online courses should not necessarily dictate the academic program in high school, a review of previous performance should give a good indication of strengths and weaknesses. Using this information, students can plan a program of studies that meets their needs.

An unusually high number of students are pursuing the CVA option for a more consistent schedule and in respect to personal health concerns.  This may be a difficult choice in consideration of unique experiences offered through the Carlisle High School’s traditional program.  

Extra-Curricular Activities

Students who elect to enroll in CVA, still have opportunity to engage within all extracurricular activities of Carlisle High School that occur virtually or outside of school hours throughout the school year. 

In-Person, Singleton, Courses (Excluding CTE)

Although there is a limited number of courses not available through CVA, we want our students to continue with their passions and hobbies.  Our hope is that students find ways to continue growing through their interests and explore ways to join clubs that strengthen their interests.
