Elementary Overview

The PA Virtual Charter School Elementary program includes students in Kindergarten through Fourth grade. The Elementary program has a principal for students in grades K-1 and a principal for students in grades 2-4. Each self-contained class in the Elementary 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.


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.
