    • Students are actively engaged in classwork, homework, and other assignments. 
    • Students who enroll in Virtual Distance Learning make a one-year commitment to receiving all of their schooling in the Virtual Distance Learning format. 
    • Students from all over Loudoun County will attend Virtual Distance Learning classes together.  


    Synchronous Classes 

    Classes will follow a bell schedule and attendance in a Google Meet is required each day. The schedule will follow a typical LCPS schedule. Secondary students have four blocks per day and alternating A and B days. Students will engage with their teacher and classmates in real-time. Teachers will facilitate learning using Schoology as the primary learning management system and other tools and instructional methods, as determined by the teacher. Students complete weekly assignments, readings, discussions, and group work, as well as exams and other activities designed to enhance learning outcomes, all at times that are determined and communicated by the teacher.

    Classes Offered

    Virtual Distance Learning offers courses based on student demand, and is not able to offer every course in the LCPS program of studies. Students should expect courses to be rigorous and enriching, and should actively participate in their learning each day.
