Elementary School Program (1)

Grades K-5

Our online elementary school program provides families with the opportunity to access a world-class education from the comfort and safety of home. We combine hands-on activities with online lessons to create an engaging experience personalized to your child’s needs. Parents collaborate with our certified teachers and Learning Success Coaches to support student success and foster curiosity in an instructor-paced model that encourages students to reach their full potential.

We are thrilled to announce that our Kindergarten program offers personalized 1:1 diagnostic testing at the start of the academic year. By providing individualized learning and tailored teaching instruction, we aim to ensure that each student receives the best possible educational experience.

During the first week of school, our dedicated Kindergarten teachers will conduct these special 1:1 meetings. This valuable opportunity allows us to understand each child’s unique strengths and areas for growth, enabling us to tailor our approach to their specific needs. We eagerly await the arrival of our incoming Kindergarten students and are excited to embark on this educational journey together. We can’t wait to meet you and begin building a foundation for lifelong learning and success.
