Virtual Loudoun Administration
The vision of Virtual Loudoun is to cultivate quality, flexible, self-paced, virtual learning.
Virtual Loudoun Supervisor
Ms. Stacie Ahrens-Mininberg
Welcome to Virtual Loudoun where our program vision is to cultivate quality, flexible, self-paced, virtual learning!
This school year marks our 4th year serving the secondary students of LCPS. Over the years, we have grown from a hundred student enrollments to thousands.
As the pioneer and only administrator of this unique supplemental program, I am committed to ensuring expectations that will facilitate the development of knowledgeable, critical thinkers, communicators, collaborators, creators, and contributors.
As a Virtual Loudoun team, we will continue to refine our practices to enable our students to make meaningful contributions to the world.
I have a wide variety of experience in Loudoun as a former teacher of special education in the content areas of science, English, social science and math at Broad Run and Woodgrove High Schools and in CTE coursework at Monroe Technology Center (MTC) prior to becoming Supervisor of Virtual Loudoun. Additionally, I have served as part of the administrative team at MTC as both Placement Coordinator and Assistant Principal.
I grew up in Long Island, New York and have an undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education which I received from St. Joseph’s College.
I have a Master’s of Education Degree in Instruction. In addition, I have a Master’s Degree in Education Administration. Both of my graduate degrees were obtained through Shenandoah University.
I am excited for each of our three terms this year and the opportunity for our students to experience their personalized learning at their own pace and in their own space: online courses are available 24/7. My email box is always open too, so please be sure to contact me anytime!

Virtual Loudoun School Counselor
Ms. Cynthia Fillman
I joined LCPS in 2009 when I began working at Park View High School as a School Counselor. After spending just over 7 years at PVHS, I transitioned into Virtual Instruction in October of 2016.
I enjoy being a part of the Virtual Loudoun team very much! I like the quality and flexibility our courses offer. It is meaningful to me to be a part of a team that provides alternative educational options for learners.
I graduated from St. Andrews University in North Carolina with a BA in English, and earned my M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling at UNC Chapel Hill.
