Welcome to Baldwin County Virtual School, Alabama's first virtual secondary school. We are excited to provide Baldwin County students a fully accredited, flexible pathway for earning a diploma from the comfort of home. Online learning presents unique opportunities that transcend traditional "brick and mortar" education. BCVSS students organize their own school day without the confines of a pre-determined timetable, all while meeting the same graduation requirements as a traditional public school program. Of course, with flexibility comes responsibility. Along with admission criteria, students must maintain a minimal GPA to be re-admitted the following school year. For highly motivated students who want to be in the driver's seat of their own education, BCVSS offers tremendous opportunities:
- Dual Enrollment (earn college credits and high school credits simultaneously)
- Flexible scheduling allows for hobbies/travel/interests/work
- Acceleration through summer semester/early graduation
- Advanced Placement courses
- 24 hr./ 7 day access to courses
- Direct, personalized instruction from real teachers
- Flexible due dates and re-submissions in most courses
- Academic support
- Multiple clubs, organizations, and honor societies
- 3 convenient locations in Baldwin County for testing, tutoring, and individualized instruction
- Academic Intervention, RTI, and SPED
- Traditional high school experiences (prom, graduation, live theatre, class rings, etc.)
- Sports/Band/ROTC eligibility at zoned school
- Leader in Me
- Full counseling department
- College & Career Coaching
- Mentor teacher program
About Baldwin County Virtual Secondary School
BCBE Safety Message
Protecting our students, teachers, and employees is our priority. The Baldwin County Public School System has partnered with the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Baldwin County Commission and our municipal law enforcement agencies so that ALL our school campuses have a dedicated School Resource Officer each school day.
As part of our school system’s multi-million-dollar commitment to safety, “buzz in” – video identification check is available on each campus. Everyone must follow stated safety procedures.
Of note, just because you hear “lockdown” does not necessarily mean there is an emergency on campus. We are sometimes alerted by law enforcement of a concern in the community that prompts us to implement our safety plan.
Of supreme importance: if you see or hear something, say something– not on social media – but report immediately to law enforcement, a teacher or school administrator all concerns. School administrators and law enforcement will sort out the validity. Together, we form a partnership that keeps our schools safe. Thank you for being a partner!
