Vision

The K-8 Sage Oak Virtual Academy is a program that offers 3 days of virtual instruction (on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) and two days of independent study (on Monday and Friday). The class teacher is responsible for assigning work and grading assignments. 

We strive to create community by placing students in grade level classes where they have opportunities to collaborate and build relationships with their peers. There is an emphasis on engaging, hands-on, project based learning. 

For the 2021-2022 school year we will be offering only one class per grade level to ensure we develop a high quality program starting with our pilot year. We plan to add additional classes in future school years.

Curriculum

Students in this program will be provided with a Chromebook, all curriculum, materials, and it also includes a grade level specific field trip. Along with three days of direct instruction, students are also given the opportunity to participate in clubs and enrichment classes offered by academy teachers. No instructional funds are allotted to students in this program.
