FAQs: Elementary Program
Bridges Virtual Academy’s elementary program spans K4-5th grade. Each year is structured in a slightly different manner with additional rigor added as student skills and abilities are developed. Families work with a student’s advisory teacher to develop an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP), where curriculum and resources are tailored from our approved resources to meet the needs of each student in each subject area.
K4-2nd Grade Band: In the K4/K level, our program supports student exploration and discovery of new concepts and ideas; 1st and 2nd grade students have more teacher-directed opportunities including live (virtual) supplemental class options.
3rd-5th Grade Band: Students have up to 3 different instructional pathways to select from in each subject-area to tailor their learning experiences. This level includes increased live class options.
The overarching goal of our elementary program is to to build foundational skills for future learning, and to instill students with a love of learning.
