Hamilton Virtual School

Full time online students please contact the Director for information on availability.  Full time students receive 4 core classes and up to 4 of our great electives.  Hamilton Virtual School is not accepting enrollments for part time (homeschooled) students. 

At Hamilton Community Schools, we are proud of the work that we do with each and every learner we have the opportunity to serve.  We continue to grow our educational options so that learning is personalized for each student.  

Hamilton Virtual School meets the needs of all students by offering a complete online curriculum for the full time virtual school students and traditional students in all of our buildings.  Part time virtual school students may take any non-essential elective course offered to the full time students.  Non-essential courses, sometimes called “electives” are available to all students, whether they are a full time virtual student, a homeschooler, a traditional public Hamilton Community Schools (HCS) student, or a non-public student accessing our programming through a shared-time arrangement with their nonpublic school. Courses such as Musical Theater, PE, Spanish, and Art are just some of the opportunities that all students enrolled at HCS have available to them.  Follow the links below for a complete list of available classes

Hamilton Virtual School offers many classes for grades K-12.  The classes are all taught by certified teachers.  While all classes may be taken online, many students enjoy the camaraderie and additional experiences provided by the optional classes held on campus at Hamilton Middle School and Hamilton High School.
