Discover the ASD Virtual Campus

While we have offered the Virtual Academy to middle and high school students since 2014, ASD has expanded our Virtual Campus to provide anytime/anywhere education to all K-12 students during the school year!

Over time, this innovative learning option has become increasingly popular among students and families, who appreciate its flexibility, rigor and focus on student success. Students can take part in ASD sports, clubs, prom, choir and a range of other extracurricular activities. Graduates receive an ASD diploma and can walk across the stage with their peers during our commencement ceremony.
