Please note: Virtual Prince William is the School Division’s online high school course system. Watch for details coming soon on separate 2021 Summer School Program information for K-12 students with academic needs.

Online registration for the 2021 summer session of Virtual Prince William (VPW) is open until April 30, 2021. The 2021 summer session dates are June 21-July 30. Students can take a full-credit course through VPW, the PWCS online high school course system. Students work with highly qualified PWCS online instructors.

High school students should meet with their school counselors for pre-approval to take an online course through VPW. Students must maintain access to their course throughout the summer semester. While it is understood students may go on vacation, camps, etc., on average, students work about four to six hours per day on their course in order to successfully complete it within the six-week time period.

VPW delivers courses aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning and are NCAA-approved. The program is ideal for students who want to work ahead, recover credit, fulfill electives, or find they are one course short to meet graduation requirements. The summer tuition cost is $470 per course.
