Welcome to the Jefferson County Virtual Academy of Learning
JEFCOED is very excited to offer the Jefferson County Virtual Academy of Learning (JCVAL) for students in grades K-12.
- Our academy offers tuition-free, high-quality individualized learning, exemplary instruction, and regular interaction with caring online instructors.
- Student enrollment is available for all Alabama residents.
- Students who are zoned to attend a JEFCOED school can participate in extracurricular activities at the school they are zoned to attend.
JCVAL, in conjunction with Edmentum's EdOptions Academy, uses a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)-approved curriculum.
Edmentum’s fully accredited virtual school, EdOptions Academy, has been granted program approval by the NCAA Eligibility Center to offer nontraditional instruction for student-athletes. By partnering with Edmentum, school districts can use EdOptions Academy as a solution to offer nontraditional instruction to all students – including athletes pursuing a scholarship. Please contact JCVAL Principal Kim Weaver for more information. (205) 379-2070.
