The Choctaw Virtual Learning Center  in the Pearl River community officially opened with a ribbon cutting by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

In attendance to celebrate the occasion were Tribal Chief Phyliss J. Anderson, 2017-2018 Choctaw Indian Princess Kassie Lann Cox and CVLC Administrator Gene Cliburn. Current CVLC students, faculty and staff as well as supporters were also on hand to celebrate the ribbon cutting.  

“This center is a wonderful asset to our community and young people,” said Chief Phyliss J. Anderson. “I have great hopes in the success of the center and the opportunities it will provide to our tribal youth.”

The Choctaw Virtual Learning Center is for students 19-24 who have dropped out of high school and never earned a diploma or GED.

The center allows them to “drop back-in” and work with an in house instructor and virtual instruction services to earn their high school diploma at their own pace.

Students are also allowed to pursue college courses and/or career-readiness certification. The center is 20 percent classroom-based and 80 percent online-based. Instructional support, such as licensed teachers in Math and English, as well as one-on-one tutors through the MBCI Boys and Girls Club are provided to the students.

The CVLC is in the CHI Building on Industrial Road and currently has 30 students. Since opening its doors to students in October 2017 three students have graduated and will receive their diploma at the 2018 CCHS Commencement Ceremony.
