How It Works (K–8)

Great Basin Virtual Academy (GBVA) is a tuition-free public school that uses the K12 curriculum. Lessons are delivered through a platform called the Online School as well as through more traditional methods. Materials like books, CDs, and even science lab supplies are delivered right to your doorstep.

We also partner you and your child with a licensed teacher to help guide and track progress through the curriculum. There will be frequent in-person events as well.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized too, so your child will always be well educated and well socialized.

Who is this intended for?

The GBVA K–8 program serves students in grades K–8 throughout Nevada.

What are the costs?

As an online public school authorized by the White Pine School District, GBVA is part of the public school system and is available tuition-free. The K12 curriculum is provided free of charge, as well as a loaner computer system, printer, and Internet stipend for families who qualify.
