Homeschool / NCVPS
North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) provides high quality, teacher-led, online courses to students across North Carolina. In order to utilize this platform for core courses, students must be registered as a homeschooler in the state of NC. All of their courses, which include standard, Honors, AP, and electives, are approved by the NCAA for initial eligibility purposes.
First, you’ll need to notify the state of your intent to open a home school. Learn how to do that at this page. Once you have registered a homeschool with the state, you’ll be able to register your son for NCVPS courses as a homeschooler. Please see the section on this page titled “Registering Home School or Private School Students” for more information about registering for courses.
