The mission of CodeRVA Regional High School is to prepare a diverse population of students for college and careers in computer science through personalized, integrated, and applied learning.
What We Provide
During the first two years of high school, students will complete a majority of the coursework required for a high school diploma through facilitated online coursework. Online learning will be blended with collaborative projects and face-to-face interactions with teachers and industry experts. During the last two years of high school, partnerships with community colleges and employers will provide the opportunities in addition to a high school diploma, including an associate's degree in computer science, industry certifications, and internships.
Opportunities for CodeRVA Students
CodeRVA students will be provided an opportunity to graduate with a Virginia high school diploma, an associate’s degree from the community college system, industry certifications, and potentially as much as 400 hours of paid work experience in computer science-related fields.
Why It Was Created and What Is It?
There is a significant workforce gap in the computer science and technology field. As new generations of students are becoming interested in all of the newest fields of the technology workforce, CodeRVA seeks to prepare students in central Virginia to fill the over 36,000 unfilled computer-science related positions in Virginia.
Why is this Innovative?
CodeRVA's design builds on next generation high school models across the nation that rethink the use of time and space, leverage technology to personalize and accelerate learning, and redesign curriculum to align with competency-based progressions. Focused on computer science, the school will offer the opportunity to complete high school requirements through a combination of blended (online and face-to-face) learning, integrated coursework, and Project-Based Learning (PBL).
