Berkeley County Virtual Learning Programs
As part of our mission, the Berkeley County School District (BCSD) strives to facilitate and support student-driven learning experiences by unleashing the power and potential of education. Providing students with access to virtual learning will allow them to advance their education and participate in an instructional medium that is prevalent in today’s post-secondary institutions and workforce training opportunities.
Students may use online options for initial credit or for credit recovery. The Guidance Department at each middle and high school has information for students and parents concerning virtual learning opportunities. Any virtual learning course must be approved at the school level before a student may enroll, please contact the student’s counselor first.
In general, students registering for virtual learning courses should be self-motivated and strong, independent learners. To succeed in web-based courses, students should have basic keyboarding skills and be knowledgeable about web-based applications. Accessing the internet, sending and receiving emails including adding attachments, and utilizing basic word processing software are necessary skills to succeed as a virtual learner. Students should have successfully completed the prerequisite coursework prior to enrollment. Students must be active participants in all course activities and complete all work on time. Successful virtual learners are generally very determined students who like to set their own goals and challenge themselves to meet them.
