North Carolina Online Elementary Curriculum
Young minds require a solid foundation of knowledge to support future learning. In grades K–5, our free virtual elementary school program helps young students learn the basics, acquire study skills, and develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. North Carolina Connections Academy’s online elementary curriculum stresses the fundamentals, and students focus on the core subjects: reading, writing, science, math, and social studies.
The Gifted and Talented Program
The Gifted and Talented program for elementary school students is available for students who qualify, beginning in third grade. When appropriate, advanced younger students may have the opportunity to enroll in these online courses or work at a higher grade level.
“Best of Class” Materials
North Carolina Connections Academy’s online elementary school curriculum brings together “best of class” materials from leading educational publishers and other content providers. We provide all the texts, lesson plans, and materials—everything you need for a high-quality learning experience at home.
Most elementary school curriculum content for the younger grades is in print, supplemented with online content. As your student advances through virtual elementary school, more of the content is delivered online but is still supported by printed materials.
