Nampa Online Virtual Academy (NOVA) is a full-time school designed to provide students with a robust educational experience with the flexibility of an online learning environment. 


NOVA provides an enhanced, full-time experience. Similar to a brick-and-mortar school, NOVA develops in-depth units and lessons aligned to the Idaho Content Standards. Students receive consistent feedback on how they demonstrate proficiency on those standards. Frequent assistance from a teacher is available for every student to help ensure students learn and meet their goals.


Students have the full support of a teacher, yet still have some flexibility to learn at their own pace in a digital classroom. NOVA provides a variety of learning experiences including but not limited to:


  • Large-group learning in a digital environment
  • Small-group learning in a digital environment
  • Individual meetings with teachers in a digital environment
  • Face-to-face “live” meetings with teachers to support individual needs.
  • Digital collaboration with others including students, teachers, and outside experts
  • Digital field trips
  • Opportunities to show what you've learned through a variety of digital methods.


In addition to core subjects, NOVA students are able to choose from a list of select electives. Extracurricular activities are available through the student’s home school (the school zone that corresponds to your home address).


If your student is looking for a digital learning environment that provides more flexibility in pacing and schedule and allows you to work from the safety of your home, NOVA may be for you. Space is limited, so please enroll today.
