Enrollment and Attendance FAQs
Who is eligible to attend Washington Virtual Academies (WAVA)?
Can I enroll my child in both WAVA and another school?
Yes, WAVA accepts dual enrollment through their "shared attendance agreement" with resident school districts; however, students are not permitted to take the same subject/course in both WAVA and another school district simultaneously. If parents/guardians would like to maintain their homeschool status, an Intent to Homeschool form must be filed with their resident district and WAVA for courses not taken as part of our program.
How many of my children can I enroll in WAVA?
Because WAVA provides the lesson plans and materials needed for grades K–12, many parents find it easy to enroll multiple children in the program. We currently have families with as many as five children in the program being guided by one teaching adult in conjunction with the support of WAVA teachers.
What does it cost to attend WAVA?
WAVA is a public school, so there is no tuition. We provide state-certified teachers and instructional materials. Students and families will be responsible for providing some common household materials (such as printer ink and paper). In addition, families are required to provide their own computers and internet access to participate in the program.
What is the attendance policy?
WAVA works with families to achieve a positive attendance record that meets the required 180 instructional days.
Can our family take a vacation during the school year?
The school calendar includes school holidays or vacation time. Whenever possible, family vacations should align with school vacation days. Parents are encouraged to contact their student's teacher if they plan a vacation that does not coordinate with the school calendar.
Does WAVA offer full- or half-time kindergarten?
Kindergarten is offered as a full-time program.
