The VHS course will show on the student's base school transcript.  When students enter their coursework on the NCAA portal in "My Coursework" - "Schools" they need to add us as a separate entry.  In the school section insert: "Virtual High School at PWCS" Location = Haymarket  If the name is entered incorrectly, or if it is mistakenly entered as "additional coursework" they may request more information which will delay approval.
