How do I enroll my child in HCS Virtual School?
Hamilton County Virtual School is a Choice School Program offered by Hamilton County Schools. Students typically apply to attend Virtual School by application process for our Choice School Program. Under current circumstances, this option is being offered as an alternative to in-person learning. If you wish for your child to be withdrawn from their current enrolling school and be enrolled into HCVS for the next quarter, please visit the virtual school website to complete the commitment forms. After HCVS receives the Commitment forms, they will begin the process of transferring your student. When the process is complete, virtual school teachers will add your student’s courses and send an introduction. This will be for the next quarter.
