What courses are offered online?
NVCA offers several of its in-person courses in a completely online format. Additionally, NVCA has partnered with Orange Lutheran Academy to provide an additional selection of online offerings. However, any courses NVCA online offers must be taken through NVCA. The full list of OLA online offerings is found here. Contact an NVCA academic advisor if you wish to take an online course.
Can I take courses from a different online school (EdOptions, Primavera, etc)?

Registration and billing for OLA courses is completed through NVCA. Any student wishing to take an online course with a school other than OLA will need to obtain prior approval from an NVCA academic advisor and/or administrator.
What is the tuition rate for online courses?
Hybrid students (4 on-ground courses and 3 or 4 online courses) - $8750 per year
