School Mission

The Highline Virtual Academy is a flexible learning model that provides asynchronous and synchronous learning through school-directed structures aligned within our academic year calendar. Our instructional model includes virtual and in-person experiences based on curricular and student needs.

Our school is centered around standards-based learning that challenges and engages self-motivated students. HVA is focused on building relationships with students and families in order to develop a holistic partnership that will support student academic success and social-emotional well-being.

We are committed to delivering on our Highline Promise to know every student by name, strength and need.


The Highline Virtual Academy is the only all-remote option for students in grades 6-12 since its inception in 2021-22 school year. We invite you to apply through SchoolMint

Self-paced Independent Learning 

Students who thrive in independent, online learning are good candidates for Highline Virtual Academy. Flexibility and self-pacing are two important components of the academy’s learning model. Students will experience learning aligned with state standards across all middle and high school content areas on an online learning platform. Students will select courses and earn credit through Edgenuity. 

Special education and English language learning services are available. Students can also enroll in Running Start and Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC) programming. Students will be provided with a free district-issued laptop. 

Social Emotional Learning and School Culture 

The staff at HVA will provide face-to-face experiences in an online environment and build relationships with students and families to deliver on our promise to know every student by name, strength and need. 

Students can participate in athletics and some activities at their neighborhood school.
