Online Elementary School Gifted and Talented Program
As long as students stay on track, Pecos Connections Academy virtual school allows them to complete daily lessons at their own pace, but some students may be more advanced and require more challenge. Beginning in the third grade, these accelerated students may be eligible for the gifted and talented program. Certain younger students who present advanced abilities may also be eligible to enroll in the gifted and talented program or to progress on to a higher grade level.

Online Elementary Curriculum Content
As children develop, they learn naturally, absorbing all that surrounds them and searching for answers to their myriad of questions. At Pecos Connections Academy online elementary school, we harness that curiosity and provide students with ways to turn that natural desire for learning into a more structured education. To build confidence and a strong foundation, we start with the basics plus study skills, incorporating them into our core courses.

Online Public School Activities
Socialization is just as much a part of a successful education as “reading, writing, and ’rithmetic.” At Pecos Connections Academy, there are many activities and clubs in which students can participate. Your child will get hands-on learning while making new friends.
