Who We Are

Mission & Vision


Jeffco Virtual Academy just celebrated 10 years of providing students in Colorado an alternative educational option.  We opened in 2009 with 190 students and now serve over 1,000 families throughout Colorado each school year.  We are honored to have served 17,000 students in our time as a school.

Ollie the Otter

In 2013, students chose our mascot, Ollie the Online Otter.


JVA will be a nationally recognized education option that prepares a diverse population of students for a successful future through rigorous online and blended coursework, connections with staff, and alternative pathways to graduation and college/career readiness.

We believe where a student lives should not determine their access to a quality education.  A world-class education is delivered through rigor, relevance, and relationships. Jeffco’s graduation requirements, responsive instruction, and access to options such as Post-Secondary Enrollment, Advanced Placement courses, help to ensure a rigorous education. Jeffco Virtual Academy will expose students to challenging coursework with academic and social support.

Education must be relevant to our students in order for it to have meaning. Online learning in itself is relevant to today's students who have generally been exposed to computers and the Internet as part of their daily lives. Our classes require students to apply their knowledge, concepts and skills to solve real-world problems.

Relationships are the glue that binds students and staff together in one common learning community. Through the use of our Community Connect Program, online real-time learning connections, clubs, and student organizations, students will experience more than just a series of online courses at Jeffco Virtual Academy; they will be part of a community of learners.


We offer educational options for 6-12 grade students who reside in Colorado.  We are proud to offer 6 program options: Middle SchoolHigh SchoolTargeted Actions to Graduation (TAG)Credit AdvancementCredit Recovery School Group Enrollments.  

We are fully staffed with with Administrators, Counselors, Community Liaisons, Learning Specialists, an Instructional Coach, Instructional Technology Coordinator, School Psychologist, TAG Coordinator and office staff including a Principal/Financial Secretary and Registrar/Attendance Secretary. Our teachers are highly qualified and create effective lessons for students in a virtual setting following the state-approved curriculum.

Students can choose from a variety of courses and participate in activities/events both virtually and in-person. We have Back to School Night, Conferences (virtual and face-to-face options), parent help sessions, etc. 

We are just like any other Jeffco Public School, we're just based primarily online!
