Elementary School K-4
The PA Virtual Charter School elementary school program includes students in kindergarten through fourth grade. The elementary program has a principal and an assistant principal. Each self-contained class in the elementary school program is assigned a highly qualified, PA-certified teacher that offers unprecedented personalized support in partnership with Learning Coaches using the K12 Inc. curriculum. Teachers, in partnership with Learning Coaches, review student performance two to four times a year to develop students’ goals. We offer a variety of instructional platforms to provide a strong educational foundation for every child. PA Virtual Elementary students complete engaging lessons in mathematics, English and Language Arts, History, Art, Science, Physical Education, Health and Music.
PA Virtual provides the student and Learning Coach academic support by ensuring every student is assigned a highly qualified PA-certified teacher, and is provided with the K12 Inc curriculum as well as their teacher’s weekly calendar and a parent regional ambassador. Learning Coaches and students also receive student service support from their assigned guidance counselor and Family Support Coordinator to assist with non-academic, social and emotional needs.
PA VIRTUAL OFFERS A VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL FORMATS
Families may choose between one of these options or a mix of the two:
- Synchronous- Students attend live classes with PA-certified teachers and children across the Commonwealth
- Asynchronous- Students have a customizable schedule in a self-directed environment, supervised by a dedicated teacher
Adapting to your schedule, students and Learning Coaches use the K12 Inc. Online School for interactive and engaging lessons, which includes daily and weekly lesson plans. Principals, as the instructional leaders, partner with the teachers and parents to ensure student academic progress and success.
Students and teachers interact in regularly scheduled, live virtual classes using our Blackboard Collaborate™ learning management system. Interacting with teachers and peers, your child can engage in lessons and activities using 21st century tools, such as discussion boards, wikis, podcasts, videos, and webcams.
