Changes in the VA College and Career Center due to the COVID-19 Shutdown
One-on-One meetings are still available. Rather than in person, they will be conducted online via ZOOM. Please book appointments via the scheduling link located in the left column. Confirmation and instructions will be sent to you prior to your meeting time.
Internships are being moved to an online format until May. Watch your email and Canvas regularly for updated assignments.
CALocalscholarship is well underway. Several scholarships have been picked up from VA's Career Center. If there is a scholarship requesting dropping off your application to your Career Center, please email Mrs. Vargas your application before the due date. You will be notified in April if you received the scholarship. Unfortunately, the luncheon will be cancelled. Please email your Career Center if you have received a scholarship that you applied to.
Seniors please be sure that you are regularly checking your college application portals to see if deadlines or requirements are changing with your colleges. Here is a tool that the National Association for College Admission Counseling has created for colleges to report updates in one place for you. It is not a comprehensive list of all changes, but it is a nice place to start if you have questions. Stay up-to-date College & Career Center Newsletter. Also, check with your Counselor for additional information.
The goal of Virtual Academy High School's Career Center is to provide students with information and resources to help our students plan for their future during and after high school.
The Career Center works closely with the Counselor to assist students with their post high school education and career resources. On this website you will find lots of information about career exploration and college planning, including internships! VA's Internship is a unique program specifically to Virtual Academy students. If you do not see what you are looking for, please email the College and Career Center!
Stay connected with upcoming college visits, military recruiters, California Career Zone workshops, and presentations!
