  • HOW IT WORKS

    Our courses are based on Kansas state standards and Blue Valley curriculum. Online courses were developed by Blue Valley teachers trained in online learning and virtual design tools. Courses are taught by Blue Valley teachers who provide age-appropriate instruction and 1:1 support. During live or synchronous sessions, students will engage with their teacher and their classmates on a regular basis, learning from one another and building relationships.

    Grades K-2

    Younger students will require additional parental supervision and support in course navigation and proceeding through coursework. As students gain the ability to read independently, less assistance will be needed.
