The Clark County School District began offering Distance Education opportunities to its students in 1991. Vegas PBS, formerly known as KLVX, delivered pre-recorded lessons via video tape and TV. As technology evolved so did distance education and, in 2013, we became the Nevada Learning Academy at CCSD (NVLA).
NVLA merges distance education and digital education. NVLA serves all Nevada students and assists students toward reaching their goal of graduation.

Valedictorian & Salutatorian
I have faced the adversity of being a South American kid raised in a single mother household, being an immigrant, and even living at a shelter. Things which many people say no one can come back from, but instead I’m standing in front of you today as your Valedictorian and Student Body President.
NVLA has completely surprised me by what they can do in such little time. Not only have they helped me mend the learning holes left by traditional schools, but also prepare me for life beyond high school.
Taking an AP course builds the skills you'll need throughout your college years. You give your mind a rigorous workout while polishing up your time management and study skills. You also get better at handling challenging issues and problems, with the support of your AP teachers. AP courses let you know what to expect during the next phase of your educational journey, and help you build the confidence to succeed.
Today’s cutting-edge, rigorous and relevant career and technical education (CTE) prepares high school students for a wide range of high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers. High school students involved in CTE are more engaged, perform better and graduate at higher rates.
