Our Curriculum

At Elite Virtual Academy, our curriculum is designed to provide a high-quality education that prepares students for their academic, professional, and personal lives after high school. We offer a comprehensive range of A-G courses and CTE (Career Technical Education) pathways, allowing students to explore their interests and develop valuable skills. With personalized education plans, we tailor each student’s learning experience to meet their unique needs and goals. Our extensive catalog of electives offers diverse options, including Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) classes and advanced placement (AP) courses. We also provide opportunities for concurrent enrollment at community colleges, enabling students to earn college credits while in high school. Elite’s curriculum is 100% online, targets essential California Common Core State Standards, and allows for student voice and choice in their learning. By providing so many options for students with different goals, we ensure a comprehensive and well-rounded educational experience for each student.  

Assessments

At Elite Virtual Academy, assessments play a vital role in evaluating student progress and ensuring high-quality teaching and learning are tailored to meet individual student needs. We use i-Ready assessments in Reading and Math to help determine each student’s strengths and areas for growth. This allows our teachers to differentiate instruction and provide targeted support accordingly. Additionally, our 7th and 9th graders participate in Physical Fitness Testing.  The English and Math California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress  (CAASPP) testing is administered to students in 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th grade.  Students in 8th and 11th grade also take the CA Science Test. These state tests provide valuable insights for teachers and administrators, enabling us to identify areas for improvement and promote effective teaching and learning.

A Day in the Life of an Elite Virtual Student

A Virtual Academy student enjoys flexibility and maintains a healthy balance between learning and pursuits outside of school, such as sports, work, etc. Each student’s Teacher of Record helps create a personalized schedule that includes both school and personal activities and responsibilities. Students can complete online coursework at the time and place that works best for them!

Here are a couple examples of personalized student schedules:

Elite virtual students enjoy a superior level of flexibility, choice and support.

They partner with families to oversee student progress and engagement in virtual courses, providing support and coordinating academic interventions and extensions whenever necessary.  Our Teachers of Record digilently monitor student progress through assessment data and Weekly Check-In Meetings, and provide Academic Support Sessions. They also offer assistance and training to families regarding the educational online resources provided by the school, promoting a seamless learning experience. Collaborating closely with our school counselor, the Teacher of Record ensures that students make progress not only academically, but also socially and emotionally, fostering a well-rounded education for each student.
