The Colorado Virtual Academy (COVA) is a full-time, tuition-free online public charter school located in the US state of Colorado. COVA is partnered with the private K12 Inc to provide its K-12 curriculum. All Colorado students are eligible to attend. COVA provides all required textbooks and instructional materials. Students can earn a diploma through Colorado Virtual Academy and Adams 12 Five Star school district (Colorado).

Students are expected to spend no more than 20-25% of their time on the computer in the early grades, and far more at higher levels. High school education can be considered fully online.

In 2010-2011, COVA had 4,595 students enrolled.
