Dr. Jessica T. Perry, Principal


It is my honor to begin my third year as the principal of Vance Virtual Village Academy! I look forward to continuing to support student learning and academic growth, as well as building partnerships with our parents and/or guardians of our students.

Vance Virtual Village Academy is 1 out of 5 Vance County Schools designated as a School of Innovation, due to our unique design and learning environment. Our teachers and support staff work to provide personalized learning, self-paced instruction, and an "anytime, anywhere, or anyplace" learning platform for our students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. 

I know that 2022-2023 will be an exciting year! I cannot wait to meet our students, new and returning, and take flight on our trip, towards an academically rich, rigorous, and engaging learning environment!

Just a little about me. I am entering into year twenty-two (22) of my educational career. I have served the public schools of North Carolina in various capacities, some including being a 9-12 Career and Technical Education teacher, assistant principal, and a district leader.

In my spare time you can find me enjoying my family, reading, or listening to music! I am the proud mother of three amazing children; Christina, Pryce, and Terry. I am also a dog-mom to Rose. Yes, they keep me busy, but I would not have it any other way!

Let us make 2022-2023 our best year to achieve academic growth and student achievement!
