The purpose of Limestone County Virtual School (LCVS) is to provide students who reside within areas served by Limestone County Schools the option to complete a program of courses designed to lead to graduation and receipt of a diploma through an online, virtual platform.

Alabama Connections Academy (ALCA) is a tuition-free, virtual public school for students in grades K-12. The school is authorized by Limestone County School District and will begin serving students in the 2017-18 school year. ALCA provides students with the flexibility to learn from anywhere there is an Internet connection and with an innovative online school curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards. The combination of certified Alabama teachers, an award-winning curriculum, engaging electives, technology tools, and social experiences provides a supportive online learning opportunity for students who want an individualized approach to education.

Courses will follow the Alabama Courses of Study developed by the Alabama Department of Education, as well as meet the standards established by the State Board of Education. 

Virtual schooling offers students many benefits as they relate to flexibility with time and program customization. Students also assume increased responsibility in personal time management, organization, self-direction, and personal discipline to complete the course and school requirements.

Other than daily physical attendance at the school and any other requirements removed by
Act 2015-89, students who otherwise meet the eligibility requirements for extracurricular participation may do so at their zoned school as if they were in attendance on campus each day.
