Elementary School Curriculum
Nurturing Young Minds
At Tennessee Virtual Academy, we nurture inquisitive minds with the K12 approach that Big Ideas + Consecutive Down Payments + Practice = Mastery. Throughout our K–5 course offerings you will find certain recurring themes that build on the previous grades' teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of knowledge. And with more than 700 lessons per subject, they can dive deeply into areas of interest.
High Quality Curriculum
The K12 curriculum was created using tried and true approaches for instruction. Our core courses—language arts/English, math, science, history—plus electives in art, music, and world languages are combined into a rich full-time schooling option. The lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as an art or history lesson. What begins as a story about a king who lost his wife may end up with an examination of the architecture and history of the Taj Mahal, built as a monument to a dead queen.
Bringing Lessons to Life
Lessons come to life with a rich mixture of online and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and compelling text, videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. Lessons are followed by assessments so you can be sure that your child has mastered a particular area before moving on, and built-in planning and progress tools make it easy to stay on track.
