Duquesne City School District is proud to announce the creation of its all-new online cyber program that combines the latest in 21st Century learning with the quality education our families have come to expect.


Dukes Virtual Academy will offer students and families a comprehensive educational experience along with the flexibility to navigate the uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The online offering is available for students ranging from K-6.


Enrollment forms can be found on our homepage under the “Registration” tab or by clicking here. Once the forms are filled out, contact Jazmine Brown by calling                    412-466-9600 ext. 7032. Questions regarding the program can be sent to Jamie Schmidt at

Due to the demand for this program and to ensure everyone is properly prepared by the beginning of the school year, we ask that you enroll your child by August 12. There is no limit to the number of students that can enroll by the deadline date.


Dukes Virtual Academy is an online learning platform in which students can hone their budding skills and continue to learn and grow. The program is led by certified teachers from Duquesne and the Allegheny Intermediate Unit (AIU) who present lessons equivalent to those taught in the classroom. Each educator will provide videos, walk-through experiments or other unique and engaging lessons. The asynchronous teaching especially allows for our working families the opportunity to receive a quality education without compromising to the demands of their busy lives. 


All students enrolled in the program will receive a Chromebook and a printer/scanner provided by the district for use while actively enrolled in the Dukes Virtual Academy.
