Welcome to Washington Virtual Academies School's K-8 Program! We are excited to have you and your student join us this school year.
As your student's learning coach, you will work with your teacher on scheduling, pacing, and monitoring your child's online school progress. However, we partner with you to ensure a successful learning experience for your child. As the school year starts, your teacher will be right by your side, guiding you and your student.
Please use the resources on this website to help get your school year off to a strong start. You'll find an entire support network of parents you can connect with.
Get advice from parents who have done this before, attend information sessions, see helpful videos, and more.
Where do I start?

You will hear from your school representative once the school year starts. But by going through the steps outlined above, you will have already completed many of the tools needed to get your school year started.
WAVA facilitates discussions and provides peer-mentoring, academic support, and discussions to students and their families. Many of our parents have established wonderful relationships and learned valuable tips and tricks from other parents through the K12 Parent Network
A wide range of extracurricular clubs and programs at the national and local level provide numerous socialization opportunities to students. Many of our students enjoy participating in local and national, as well as in summer camps. We offer a wide variety of options throughout the summer and school year.

K12 Curriculum—What to Expect?
The award-winning K12 curriculum brings lessons to life with a rich mixture of online and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original CDs and videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. In addition, 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.

When will new courses appear in the OLS?
New courses ordered for 6th and 7th grader students will appear in the OLS on August 26th. For 8th graders, all courses in the LMS (Learning Management System-the high school version of the OLS) will be visible to the student on the first day of school, September 9th. Materials for new courses will arrive at your home in late August.
Will 8th graders earn High School credit towards graduation requirements for courses?
Yes! There are 4 courses for which an 8th grader could earn high school credits towards graduation. Washington State History, Computer Literacy, Algebra 1, and Literary Analysis and Composition are all "credit bearing" courses which are currently the standard courses offered to our 9th graders at WAVA. Students who take these courses and earn grades which they would like to be reflected on their high school transcripts will earn credit towards high school graduation requirements. Students who take these courses, but are not happy with the grades earned, may re-take the course as a 9th grader and earn high school credit during their 9th grade year.
