“Engaging.” “Inspiring.” “Empowering.” That’s how parents describe our elementary school online curriculum at Oregon Connections Academy (ORCA) where positive early experiences set the stage for a lifetime learning adventure.

Foundations First—Building Reading, Writing, and Mathematics Skills

Based on the multi-sensory way children learn, our elementary online curriculum builds essential reading, writing, and math skills with resources that make learning exciting:

Parent-friendly, student-focused 

In grades K–5, the Learning Coach is an important part of the ORCA team. In addition to getting a personalized learning plan tailored to each student’s individual strengths and challenges, every lesson provides clear, easy-to-follow instructions for the Learning Coach. Every student is unique and, at ORCA, the customized curriculum is unique to every student.

When Morgan logs into Mrs. Jones’ LiveLesson® session on Monday, the class is buzzing about the upcoming field trip to the local botanical gardens. Using colorful maps and diagrams, Mrs. Jones describes Oregon’s unique ecosystem and the biomes they’ll observe on their trip. Together, the class watches a Teachlet tutorial on adaptation and survival. For that evening’s homework, Morgan digs deeper into the subject as she reads the assigned chapter in her online textbook.  

When Morgan and her class visit the botanical gardens that Saturday, they’re all ready for their latest adventure in science.

When Maria next meets some of her classmates in the online Chess Club, they’re still chatting about the mission, the lessons learned, and new friends made.
