Online Elementary School Curriculum
Young children need a strong base of knowledge when it comes to supporting their future in learning. For the grades of K–5, our virtual elementary school program was outlined to help students get a firm grasp on the basics, develop good study skills, and acquire a love of learning that will last them a lifetime. The elementary curriculum at South Carolina Connections Academy’s (SCCA) focuses on the fundamentals so our online students concentrate more on core subjects such as writing, reading, math, science, and social studies.
The Gifted and Talented Program
Connections Academy has a Gifted and Talented program available as early as grade 3 for those online elementary school students who qualify. If appropriate, younger students may be given the opportunity to enroll in these advanced online courses or may choose to work at a higher grade level.
“Best of Class” Materials
SCCA also uses “best of class” materials as part of the online elementary school curriculum. All materials come from the country’s top educational publishers and other educational content providers. Once enrolled at SCCA, you will receive all the lesson plans, texts, and materials you need in order to enjoy a quality learning experience from home.
The majority of our online elementary school curriculum content is actually in print and then supplemented with daily online content. As your child progresses through virtual elementary school, more of the curriculum content is online with the printed materials taking more of a supportive role.
