The Nova Scotia Virtual School provides online high school courses to students enrolled in public high schools in Nova Scotia. In general, an NSVS online course should be one of the four that a student would enroll in during a semester. Students must have space in their timetable to take an online course. Courses are taught by Nova Scotia certified teachers using both synchronous (when teacher and students are communicating in real-time through video conferencing or echat) and asynchronous (when students can complete activities independently) methods. NSVS teachers have office hours and students can log in to touch base with them individually. They can also instant message or email their online teacher at any time.

NSVS online courses use the Nova Scotia Public School Program (PSP) with curriculum and learning outcomes that are identical to those used in a classroom at school. NSVS courses are reported on in the report card at mid-semester and end of the semester, but are not fully integrated yet with Power School. This means that parents cannot yet look at all the information about a student's achievement in the Parent Portal. However, each student has a record of their marks in the NSVS online Gradebook and parents can access that information with their child.

NSVS online courses currently run according to semesters - courses start in September and in February. Students are expected to sign in to their course everyday to complete course activities and assignments and to interact with their teacher and fellow students.
