How Does VirtualSC Work?

VirtualSC is a supplementary online learning program, sponsored by the South Carolina Department of Education.  We offer free, online courses to students in grades 6-12 that are already enrolled in, and sponsored by a South Carolina public, private or homeschool, or those enrolled in an Adult Education Program.

Our program does not have a daily attendance requirement and your student can take an unlimited number of our courses, as long as they are approved by their sponsor school.  Courses are available 24/7 during each semester, so your student can complete their VirtualSC coursework at times that fit their schedules. We have over eighty (80) rigorous course options  for high school credit that are offered in either a fall, spring, summer or yearlong session (please check the course descriptions for more information).

VirtualSC courses are aligned to state and national standards, and are taught by Highly Qualified teachers that are licensed by the South Carolina Department of Education. At this time, VirtualSC is not a diploma-granting program; credits earned through VirtualSC courses will be recorded on an official transcript by your student’s sponsoring school.

Parents can now create their own VirtualSC accounts to monitor student progress! Ready to get started? Click on the Sign Up button at the top of this website.
