Welcome to Virtual Academy!

  • The FPS Virtual Academy is provided as an alternative education option to families with students in K-12 during the 2020-21 school year, as detailed in the FPS Smart Restart Plan. Families are able to register in the Virtual Academy for the fall semester or the full school year.

Virtual Academy students will follow the Fargo Public Schools distance learning expectations as outlined in the distance learning agreement.
