Attending school in a virtual environment doesn’t mean that students aren’t able to communicate and socialize with their peers. NCCA offers opportunities for students to meet with other students both virtually and face-to-face throughout the year.
NCCA works to promote cooperative learning in Live Learning sessions. Students work in small groups during Live Learning sessions to complete activities and discuss their work. Students can access microphones and webcams to share information with their teacher and classmates.
Some grade levels offer opportunities for students to log into an online classroom and participate in a virtual “recess” where students can use webcams and microphones to chat with other students under the supervision of NCCA teachers.
NCCA offers field trips across North Carolina. These are opportunities for students and families to explore local attractions, meet other NCCA families, and build relationships within the NCCA community.
Field trips are organized by NCCA teachers as well as parents who serve as community liaisons. NCCA also conducts Face to Face Learning Opportunities throughout the year to bring students and staff together for learning activities.

As part of the NCCA Graduation Requirements, high school students are required to complete 25 hours of community service for each year they are enrolled in the NCCA High School. NCCA offers community service opportunities throughout the year and students also plan their own service opportunities at local animal shelters, hospitals, libraries, food banks, or other locations where they can serve their local community. We encourage students in lower grades to participate in service projects appropriate to their grade level.
