Elementary & Middle School Curriculum
Nurturing Young Minds
At Arizona Virtual Academy/Insight Academy of Arizona, we nurture inquisitive minds with the K12 approach that Big Ideas + Consecutive Down Payments + Practice = Mastery. 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. And with more than 700 lessons per subject, he can dive deeply into areas of interest.
Superior K12 Curriculum
The K12 curriculum was created by a team of experts using tried-and-true educational approaches for instruction. Our six core courses—Language Arts/English, Math, Science, History, Art, and Music—make for 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 the art or history lesson she is studying. 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 on- and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, and 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 keep on track.
