My son has just finished his first year at EGVA and I have already enrolled him and his sister for next year. It is an excellent school. Homeschool could be very overwhelming if you don't have the right support. All the teachers in this school offer a lot of support. My son has made honor roll this year and it really gets him excited for school and learning. There are many fieldtrips and social activities for the kids to participate in. It is the best of both worlds. I know my children will benefit from this way of learning, actually they already are, they are happy and confident and that makes me a very happy mom! It would awesome if the school would extend to high school, hopefully by the time my kids get there it will.
My daughter loves this school! She has made some great friends through this program. The teachers are all amazing people as well. Easy to follow lessons made it easy on the learning coaches as well. We recommend this school to our friends and everyone else looking for an alternative. Thank you EGVA!!!
No words can express what a blessing this program has done for our student enrolled in Elk Grove Virtual Academy. It will enrich the child's learning experience. The curriculum encourages the student to display their gifts through learning. The teachers are committed to each student. We recommend this program and school to any parent and student seeking alternative educational opportunities. This program is committed to standards of excellence while building leaders for the future generations to come. We hope that this program will continue through the 12th grade.

Virtual Academy has been a blessing for my daughter. She has excelled since being there this year. She has been on the Honor Role this year. Mrs. Lyons is a wonderful caring teacher. She has learned things never covered in regular school. As a parent I have really enjoyed being the one to teach My daughter this year. Also I am the one that really knows what she learning every day. A grateful parent.
Coming to EGVA has helped my son be able to catch up in the subjects where he needed extra help and excel in the subjects that he has already mastered. All of the staff not just our homeroom teacher were extremely helpful and friendly at all times. This group of support is very approachable and will seek out the answers to all of your questions you may have. This is an excellent school and program with an excellent staff.
I am an advenced learner in 5th Grade. I have attended Elk Grove Virtual Academy. I enjoy the homeschooling program through Elk Grove Virtual Academy because I am able to learn at my own pace, so I can go faster or slower as I learn the subject. K12's online math makes it easier to learn math because I can watch videos that explain how to solve different problems instead of only reading from a book. Every month, we have a social outing, so I can meet other homeschooled kids. I recommend Elk Grove Virtual Academy!
My son is a 1st grader at this school and let me tell you it is a wonderful school! The teachers are very caring and helpful. The best part of this school is the flexibility it allows you to have. You're not working your vacation or daily tasks around a set schedule. As long as you have an internet connection you can do school anytime, anywhere! My son was struggling with reading, but now that I am home schooling him (with the help and support of teachers) he has excelled tremendously. He can read! This school has a wonderful curriculum that not only meets California standards, but also helps your child become a well rounded individual with electives such as science and art. I know people sometimes think negatively about the title "home school", but this curriculum is the same as being in a traditional school if not harder. The things my son has learned in English and History are the same things my son and daughter are learning in 8th and 10th grade! I highly recommend this school for those parents who have the luxury of being able to give your child that little extra attention the help them reach their full potential.
EGVA is an excellent school that offers parents and students the flexibility to truly make the most of ones time. It's nice to have a program that will fit around the student's needs, not the needs of the majority, as in a normal classroom setting. Our teachers are wonderful! They genuinely care about all the students and want them to excel as much as the parents do. They are always available to us (parents or students) if we need their guidance or experience. There is a real sense of partnership as the teachers work with the parents to try to adapt the curriculum to the student's abilities. As a parent of two students, a sixth grader and a first grader, I can't say enough about the quality well-rounded education they are receiving!
