Remote Academies


Welcome to the NC Remote Academy Resource Hub!


Pursuant to SL 2022-59, ratified in June 2022, each local education agency (LEA) is authorized to offer remote instruction through the operation of remote academies.  All remote academies must be approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education (SBE), for a period of five years and meet the legal requirements outlined in SL 2022-59.


The legislation defines a remote academy “as a public school whose instruction is provided primarily online through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction delivered to students in a remote location outside of the school facility.  A remote academy may include any combination of grade levels.” (§115C-234(b))


The Office of Virtual Instruction Services provides support for remote academy educators, students, and families across the state. Please email the Office of Virtual Instruction Services at if you have any questions or need additional support.
