Virtual School Curriculum

At Nevada Connections Academy, the top-rated K–12 Virtual School in Nevada, we offer more than outstanding courses. We offer learning adventures.

In a typical NCA day, students may follow pioneers along the Spanish Trail in an award-winning textbook, chart their route with maps and compasses, measure the distance traveled with newly-acquired geometry skills, and test their geography knowledge in an interactive Teachlet® tutorial. Then they may discuss their “travels” online in a lively, teacher-led LiveLesson® session and in-person during a field trip to a local history museum.

By bringing together the best in print, online, and interactive resources from leading publishers with our own custom-designed tools and materials, our experts have crafted a multi-dimensional experience that engages students on every level, at every level. It’s an innovative online curriculum that:

  • Builds a solid foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics.
  • Develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • Adapts readily to different learning styles and paces.
  • Fuels the imagination.
  • Excites students about school and the infinite possibilities of education.
