Bellingham Virtual Learning

A fully online option for Bellingham students 

Through Bellingham Virtual Learning (BVL), students work independently on their own schedule. They access their courses with an online curriculum and support from Bellingham Public Schools teachers and other staff. 

BVL may be a good fit for students that respond well to independent, self-paced learning, families that have health concerns returning to in-person instruction during COVID and families that have older students who may be supporting younger children’s learning at home.  

Students enrolled in Bellingham Virtual Learning have access to Bellingham Public Schools’ resources and supports as well as their neighborhood school events, extracurricular activities, clubs and athletics. They will be provided a laptop to engage in the curriculum. 

    • Students at elementary use the Accelerate Education online curriculum that includes the following subjects: English language arts, math, science (semester 1), social studies (semester 2) and optional electives such as art and coding (offered mid-semester). Families will receive login information from BVL staff. For more information about spring 2021 K-5 BVL, please take a look at this video from the elementary BVL team:


  • Middle and high school students use Edgenuity, which is accredited and is an equivalent/alternative to (but is different from) most of the courses offered at our neighborhood schools. Please see the high school handbook for more information about available high school courses.
