WELCOME to Park Rapids Area Virtual Academy!
The mission of the Park Rapids Area Virtual Academy matches the mission of the Park Rapids Area Schools: to work together to prepare today's learners for tomorrow's challenges.
PRAVA fills a need for students and families who value and thrive from learning in a flexible time and space. Students have access to coursework 24/7, but meet at least weekly with their instructors and with the PRAVA director.
