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, assistant principal, and guidance counselor. Each self-contained class in the elementary school program is assigned a 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 assigns students to classes and teachers and provide students with the tools, technology, and curriculum needed to be successful in an online learning environment. The parent or guardian plays a vital role as the Leaning Coach in the home and is responsible to ensure that the home-based classroom is conducive to learning. The Parent Ambassador Program will provide our Learning Coaches assistance in setting up and maintaining the home classroom. Learning Coaches and students can also receive support through Guidance Counselors and Family Support Coordinators, who are here to assist with non-academic, social, and emotional needs. Tech Support is available during and after school hours to address the technology needs of our families.
PA VIRTUAL OFFERS A VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL FORMATS
Students participate in both synchronous and asynchronous instructional formats:
- Synchronous- Students attend live classes with PA-certified teachers and children across the Commonwealth in a virtual classroom setting
- 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. 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.
