Virtual High School

Students in Grades 9-12 will make selections based on their graduation requirements. Schedules will be reviewed for appropriate placement. High school students will be assigned an advisor to monitor progress to graduation. Students who finish high school through Barker Creek's Virtual Academy will receive a CK Schools diploma, graduating from Barker Creek Community School. 

A typical high school schedule includes six credits of core curriculum and electives to meet progress towards the 24-credit state graduation requirement. High school students will be on a six week schedule, which we call "hexes" or "hexmesters." Students take two courses per hexmester. Hexmesters begin:

  • Hex 1 - September 9th, 2023
  • Hex 2 - October 23rd, 2023
  • Hex 3 - December 11th, 2023
  • Hex 4 - February 5th, 2024
  • Hex 5 - March 18th, 2024
  • Hex 6 - May 6th, 2024
2024 - 25 Hex Schedule
  • Hex 1 - September 4th, 2024
  • Hex 2 - October 21st, 2024
  • Hex 3 - December 9th, 2024
  • Hex 4 - February 3rd, 2025
  • Hex 5 - March 17th, 2025

Virtual Academy high school students can participate in athletic programs offered at their neighborhood high school, providing they are in good academic standing and meet WIAA requirements. To register, visit the Athletic Registration page

Note for high school athletes: If you intend to participate in college-level sports in Divisions I-III, you should know that at this time, the courses offered for grades 9-12 through this model have not been approved through the NCAA Eligibility Center to meet core requirements. If your student(s) wants to be eligible for collegiate athletics, talk with the athletic director at your attendance area/neighborhood high school.
