Upon enrollment in a course at Metro Virtual Academy, students are assigned a certified and experienced teacher. Throughout the course, students are able to communicate with their teacher in a number of ways, including direct message, email, and scheduled audio/video conferencing. Teachers are available to answer questions, provide support and feedback, and grade assessments. They are the first point of contact for any questions or concerns that students may have.
MVA also has a certified Guidance Counsellor who can provide counselling and support to students and families regarding course selection, post-secondary options and career/life planning.
At MVA, we recognize the significant impact that mental health issues can have on our students and their families. We emphasize the importance of mental health so that students know they are not alone and need not suffer in silence. No academic issue is insurmountable. MVA staff are always available to address any academic concerns you may have and discuss your options. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
