Elite Virtual Academy (EVA) students attend weekly online sessions where they receive live instruction and support from teachers and have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers. While students have the freedom to complete their 100% online coursework when and where they want, instructors like their Teacher of Record and Content Teachers help keep them on track with daily reminders, check-ins, tutoring, live instruction and corrective feedback.

One of those Content Teachers that is Mr. Patrick Navas! He is Elite’s High School Social Science teacher covering US History, World History, Government, Economics, and World Geography. Needless to say those are very important courses, so Elite is lucky to have Mr. Navas, a 14 year teaching veteran, at the helm. His own love of learning and desire to impart wisdom and knowledge to others was his inspiration for becoming a teacher. His hobbies outside of teaching are weight lifting, writing, reading, soccer, tennis, badminton, and spending time with his three sons!

EVA is 100% online, therefore Mr. Navas has the ability to work from home. He researches and prepares lectures for his students, holds Zoom office hours and is continuously in communication with the students and their Teachers of Record. He fits in grading work throughout his day also! While Elite is very lucky to have him, he told us he’s happy to be a part of the team as well.

“The culture among staff is very healthy and supportive. Our administrators always express appreciation for what we do so it feels good and encourages us to keep on keeping on!”

It is because of Teachers like Mr. Navas that our students receive a truly superior online learning experience at Elite through EVA. To learn more about EVA’s curriculum and overall structure, please visit our Virtual Academy Webpage.
