Students follow different paths in their educational journeys and benefit from a variety of opportunities to attain their goals. For some students, a more nontraditional, interactive course of study may best suit their needs. The St. Tammany Parish Public School System Virtual Academy offers students an exciting, new approach to learning.

The Virtual Academy relies on technology designed to support teaching and learning in various educational settings. Blackboard is the software system that frames the electronic courses that engage Virtual Academy students in an online setting. The Blackboard medium allows teachers and students access to a wide offering of multimedia resources, while incorporating the School System written curriculum. The Virtual Academy allows for anytime, anywhere access, partnered with unlimited collaboration possibilities—available at the click of a mouse.
