Empowering you with Choices: In-Person Learning or Online Catawba


Welcome to the Catawba County Schools family!

We are proud to offer all of our students two different choices for learning: "Traditional" in-person learning like most of us were accustomed to before the pandemic and a virtual option through our Online Catawba K-12 Virtual Learning Academy. 

Online Catawba K-12 Virtual Academy


Whether you choose the traditional route (which is anything but "traditional!") or Online Catawba, you'll need to complete all of the steps listed below. 
We're excited for you to join our family!

Would you like to attend a different CCS school that the one you are assigned?

The internal transfer process provides an opportunity for students to attend a CCS school that is outside of their regular CCS attendance area. Transportation is not provided to students attending under an internal transfer.
