My son (3rd gr) has been in this school for four years and my daughter for two (1st gr). We are very pleased with all the support and the curriculum that is challenging, interesting, and interactive. What makes this place special is the dedication and passion of the teachers. If something is not working, they provide whatever support is needed. They will change lesson plans to meet my children's interests and needs, provide wonderful opportunities through fieldtrips, socials, and PE days, and engage with all of our family in a friendly and caring way. We live in Conta Costa county, but learn wherever we happen to be. They have made the world our school room and our family even closer.
This school has been a God send for my ADHD son. Though I now can truly appreciate what it takes to keep an ADHD child focused on learning, I also know that this is the first time he has liked school, enjoyed learning, and has made honor roll in his entire 4 years of schooling so far. The teacher is very knowledgeable, provides a lot of support, and communicates with me almost daily as to progress, ideas, social events, etc... We live in Solano County so we do not participate in many of EGVA's social or PE events, choosing to have our son in organized sports/groups closer to home, where he enjoys plenty of time with friends. I highly recommend this to any family considering home schooling but want to make sure their child is getting everything and more that they may need to thrive. EGVA ROCKS!
At EGVA, each child receives an individualized education supported by a fully credentialed teacher. We use the K12 curriculum as the base curriculum, but supplement, modify, and adjust as needed per your child's strengths, needs, and family traditions. Working closely with each student's learning coach, we provide daily lesson plans that build on what your student already knows. Our curriculum is flexible and allows for students to learn at their own rate and in an environment that is conducive to their individual learning style. Our goal is to provide all the "keys" necessary to unlock your child's full potential whether they need to accelerate, remediate, or both.
Elk Grove Virtual Academy has become a dream come true for my Gifted student. She can progress at a rate that is motivational and tailored for her interests. It covers essential material that the regular classroom could not get to, so she is learning important content to help her become a knowledgeable citizen. The teachers know how to support the learning coaches as well as the students, offering small group settings for extra help and virtual meetings that contribute to technological interactions as well as offering field trips to physically meet together. This program offers the best tools I have ever seen in supporting a home school environment including virtual online learning and textbook learning. We couldn't be more delighted!
I live in Placer County and luckily found this wonderful school for my two GATE students. Though the name says Elk Grove, it covers most of Northern California and though is says "virtual" the teachers will meet with you and your student 1-1, hold small group instruction times weekly, and have lots of fieldtrips and PE days for students and their families to participate in. It truly is the best of all worlds for parents who want their kids' education tailored to their strengths. WONDERFUL!!!
