Madison County Virtual Academy is a distance learning option for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. This is an option for students who wish to continue their education full-time through innovative learning environments. Madison County Schools are excited to continue this option for those parents who prefer virtual learning to face-to-face instruction due to the medical vulnerability of students or household members. (Students in 9th through 12th grades need to contact their high school for virtual learning options.)
Madison County Virtual Academy is designed to help meet the needs of Madison County families and began as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Madison County Schools is continuing to offer this virtual learning option for Madison County students for the 2021-2022 school year.
