Online Learning at Chesterfield County Public Schools
School Year

School Year 2022-23

The CCPSOnline program provides families of high school students with a flexible alternative to the traditional school setting. Courses are taught by teachers licensed in the content areas. Students have opportunities to interact with the teacher and peers throughout the course, but do not follow a daily bell schedule. Courses are delivered and communication occurs within the Canvas learning management system. Students can interact with the course and course content anytime, anywhere.

Students may take all or some of their courses online.

Most courses are full-year courses; however, some electives are offered on a semester basis.
