Hybrid and WAVA students remain West Allegheny students and are eligible to participate in extracurricular activities such as athletics and band.
If your child receives special educational services, they will continue to receive support from our special education teachers related to goal attainment and progress monitoring, implementation of specially designed instruction, accommodations and tutoring.
To view the course options available through both In-person and WAVA, see the Course Comparison. Most of our Advanced Placement classes are available in our virtual academy (WAVA), which our teachers support.
We are not offering synchronous options at the high school as a result of the ability for students to access WAVA, which offers comparable courses to courses offered in-person, as well as the option to attend in a hybrid model, which allows students to attend in-person for part of day and complete other courses online. The synchronous model offered at K-8 does not offer live streaming into classrooms. There are dedicated teachers K-8 to instruct online at a set time. At the high school, due to the large number of specialty programs and courses offered and requirements for teacher certifications, we are unable to staff a fully online synchronous model. However, our WAVA program offers comparable courses, which can accommodate your child's schedule.
CCAC courses offered through our Early College in High School Academy are not able to be taught online as our teachers are qualified and approved as affiliated CCAC professors and must follow CCAC guidelines. We are unable to live stream CCAC eligible courses. We strongly encourage considering a hybrid model where students attend a portion of the day to complete their college eligible courses and complete other courses in WAVA.
