Counties include Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester.

Students accepted into the BVP are enrolled 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.
