Online Elementary School Curriculum
Young children need a strong base of knowledge to support their future learning. For grades K–5, our virtual elementary school program was designed 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 focuses on the fundamentals, so online students concentrate 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 work at a higher grade level.
“Best of Class” Materials
South Carolina Connections Academy also uses “best of class” materials as part of the online elementary school curriculum. All materials come from top educational publishers and other educational content providers. Once enrolled at SCCA, you will receive all the lesson plans, texts, and materials you need 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 online content. As your child progresses through virtual elementary school, more of the curriculum content is online with printed materials taking more of a supportive role.
