AB Tech Online
The Distance Learning Lab gives juniors and seniors the opportunity to take college-level courses from AB-Tech via an internet connection. Students attend class at Enka High School under the supervision of the Distance Learning Advisor while the instructor at AB Tech teaches the class. Since all of the coursework is completed on the computer, students are expected to be technically proficient, possess a minimum 3.0 weighted GPA, and complete an application before enrolling in Distance classes. It is highly recommended for students to have internet access at home.
Currently, Enka High School offers college courses as elective credit through the Distance Learning program. This is an excellent way for students to earn college credit (with a grade of 'C' or better) without leaving the Enka campus. In addition, students are earning honors high school credit.
North Carolina Virtual Public School
Virtual High School (or NCVPS) is a unique program that offers Juniors and Seniors elective high school credit in an online environment. Students with a GPA of 3.0 or greater have the opportunity to enroll in courses not currently offered at Enka High School. Many AP courses are also included in this program. Students must be self motivated, demonstrate computer literacy and meet all pre-requisites for the virtual course.
Courses are taught by teachers from North Carolina Public Virtual School via the internet. Students access the course in Enka's Distance Learning Lab which is faciliated by the Distance Learning Advisor. Honors and standard courses are a semester in length and AP courses are year-long. NCVPS courses are seminar-based; students interact, exchange information, and participate in group discussions with their classmates and teacher.
