Union County Public Schools E-Learning Program is comprised of four online learning components; Union County Virtual (UCVirtual), Apex Learning, North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) and Career and College Promise. These four learning platforms allow over 3,500 UCPS students to take advantage of a wide variety of educational opportunities that expand on what their district home school can provide.
UCVirtual is our in-house blended learning program built by UCPS teachers. Students are able to take a variety of courses in our online learning platform, Canvas. Apex Learning is an online credit recovery program. This option allows student to earn a credit for a course they have previously failed. NCVPS is an online learning program offered by the state of North Carolina. This program allows students to take a variety of courses that are not available from UCVirtual. Career and College Promise is a state funded program that allows UCPS students to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school. Our local partner, South Piedmont Community College, provides both online and face to face courses for students that qualify.
