Dear Parents and/or Guardians,


Welcome to Washington Virtual Academies (WAVA) and the 2016-2017 school year. We are honored that you have chosen to enroll and educate your student(s) with us this year.


This will be WAVA’s 11th year serving K-12 students in the state of Washington. Over our first decade, a lot has changed and advanced with the technology systems that support our digital school. This coming year will be no different. Our entire community is extremely excited by some of the new courses and support systems that are going to be implemented. We believe that these improvements will help us towards our goal of meeting the learning needs of each and every one of our students.


This past year WAVA also renewed our accreditation through AdvancED. This process helped us to analyze our school’s strengths and weaknesses and develop plans that will allow us to continue to grow and improve. Every year, our goal remains to “be a better WAVA” for our students and families.


One thing that will not change is our commitment to our core values. These key statements help guide our teachers’ conversations with students towards the behaviors and actions that will help them to succeed. WAVA’s list of core values is included below. I encourage you to discuss these with your children and remind them of their importance with regards to their school work and activities.


At WAVA, we believe every student can flourish when given the opportunity and proper supports. When you enroll in WAVA, you enroll in more than a school. You join a vibrant learning community of dedicated teachers, and parents committed to seeing each and every student achieve up to their potential. Without a doubt online learning requires student dedication and commitment, but the rewards of personal growth and academic improvement are well worth the effort!


On behalf of our dedicated school community of educators, I look forward to welcoming you into the Washington Virtual Academies.


Warm Regards,


Mark Christiano


Head of School
