Wisconsin Virtual Academy's K–5 Program

Wisconsin Virtual Academy (WIVA) uses online curriculum and services provided by K12. With K12, learning can happen at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection can be found. While attendance, teacher interaction, and daily lessons are conducted online, K12 lessons use physical materials and offline tools as well.

Instructional Model

As a public virtual charter school, WIVA’s K–5 grade-level course work is based upon standards mastery. This means that state standards drive our teacher’s instruction and our required live ClassConnect sessions.  These asynchronous classes  are accompanied  by online lessons, offline work, and assessments, ensuring the student has mastered a particular learning standard before moving on. Teachers offer many support sessions to assist all of their students.

The Role of the Parent/Learning Coach

As your student's Learning Coach, you will work with your student and his/her teacher know, support, and monitor your child’s school academic plan and progress. However, we partner with you to ensure a successful learning experience for your child. As the school year starts, teachers and staff will be right by your side, guiding you and your student.

Certified Teachers, Superior Teaching Tools

At WIVA, all students interact with multiple Wisconsin-licensed teachers (depending on grade level) and communicate regularly with their teachers through e-mail, telephone, online synchronized opportunities, and direct instruction. Each WIVA family receives all instructional materials, including a wide array of textbooks, CDs, videos, and other hands-on tools and resources. These materials complement the interactive online elements of the program, ensuring that students receive instruction using the best method for each subject.
