The Eastern Shore of Maryland Education Coalition (ESMEC) Blended Virtual Program is available to students who are enrolled in a public school on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and entering grades 6-12 in the 2023-2024 school year. Counties include Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester.

Applications are being accepted from May 15 through June 15, 2023 and are available on the ESMEC BVP Website.

Students accepted into the BVP are enrolled in Caroline County Public Schools and have the ability to participate in extra-curricular activities open to all Caroline students. The courses taught through the BVP are aligned with all Maryland State Standards to ensure the same quality education students are receiving in person. Students will have daily synchronous lessons with Maryland-certified educators; however, the teachers are not CCPS employees.

Students must apply and be accepted into the program, based on specific criteria. Once accepted as a CCPS student in the program, there is no cost to participate.
