The School District of Oconee County offers students in grades 7 through 12 access to virtual, asynchronous, high school credit-bearing courses facilitated by district teachers.  Courses are offered during the fall and spring semesters as well as during the summer.  

VirtualSDOC expands educational options for students who may want to graduate early, make room in their schedule to attend Hamilton Career and Technology Center dual enrollment classes, work a part-time job, catch up or get ahead on credits, or have a lighter course load during the school year.
