K–8 Curriculum

Nurturing Young Minds

At North Carolina Virtual Academy, we nurture inquisitive minds. Throughout our K–8 course offerings you will find certain recurring themes that build on the previous grades' teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of knowledge. Our individualized approach means your child can go as fast or slow as he or she needs to. And with more than 700 lessons per subject, your child can dive deeply into areas of interest.

Superior Curriculum

The K12 curriculum was created by a team of experts using proven instructional approaches. We offer core courses in language arts/English, math, science, history, art, health/PE and music.

The lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson he or she is studying. So a story about a king who lost his wife dovetails 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 hands-on teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original music and videos, and materials for science experiments. Lessons are followed by assessments so you can be sure your child has mastered a particular concept before moving on, and built-in planning and progress tools make it easy to keep on track.
