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.
