Spring 2016 Online Classes Registration Deadline Nears

Registration for second semester BRVGS online college courses is currently available, and will end December 11th. Courses being offered are a 3-credit online UVa Digital Technology course and an online Germanna Community College Statistics Math 240 course. These courses are paid for by BRVGS, and are flexibly scheduled, so that they can be taken during any class period.

Students who plan to take one or both of these courses, need to respond via the BRVGS Spring 2016 Course Registration Form.   In order to be registered for the course, all responses must be in no later than Friday, December 11th. Please note that students must respond to this form to start the registration process for these courses, even if they previously responded to the pre-registration form last spring, or emailed Director Marc Carraway separately to express interest, or scheduled this course with their counselor.

If the courses fill up, priority will be given to those students who pre-registered on the initial course interest form sent out last spring.

For information on the courses, click here to see draft syllabus for the Digital Technology class, or here to see the Germanna CC course description (scroll down to Math 240).

Please contact Mr. Carraway at with any questions.
