Idaho Virtual Academy Celebrates Its 10th Graduating Class

Class of 2018 to Gather for In-Person Graduation Ceremonies

Virtual Academy
(IDVA), a statewide online public charter school,
will celebrate the Class of 2018 – the school’s 10th graduating class –
with three in-person graduation ceremonies across the state.

More than a third of this year’s graduating class will graduate with
honors. Lauren Moon will serve as the valedictorian of the Class of 2018
and will speak at the Northern Idaho graduation at the Kroc Center in
Coeur d’Alene on June 24. Moon will also graduate with her associate
degree thanks to dual credit opportunities, and she plans to attend
Willamette University in the fall.

Aaron “Cord” Myler is IDVA’s salutatorian and will speak at the school’s
Southeastern Idaho graduation at Taylorview Middle School in Idaho Falls
on June 21. Myler will study engineering at Utah State University on a
$56,000 Legacy Scholarship. Myler has been offered $110,000 in
scholarships from five different universities.

Ezra Kennedy, an honors student, will serve as the student speaker at
IDVA’s Southern Idaho graduation at Northwest Nazarene University’s
Brandt Center in Nampa on June 23. Kennedy also plans to study
engineering at Utah State on a full-ride presidential scholarship.

Collectively, IDVA’s 183 graduates have been offered more than $604,000
in college scholarships, with more than 60 percent of the class planning
to attend college. Students report that they have been accepted to
colleges and universities across the country, including Boise State
University, Idaho State University, University of Idaho, University of
Utah, University of Washington, Washington State University, University
of Denver, Montana State University, University of Northern Iowa,
University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of New York-Prague,
Jagieollonian University in Poland, The Julliard School and College of
Western Idaho, among others. In addition, six students intend to enlist
in the military.

“Graduation is a wonderful time to celebrate our students’ hard work and
many accomplishments,” said IDVA head of school Kelly Edginton. “The
Class of 2018 is an especially impressive group and we can’t wait to see
what the future holds for them.”

IDVA provides students statewide in kindergarten through 12th grade with
