One of the most important concerns for many parents in the Phoenix, AZ, area is to find the ideal learning environment for their child. For some children, the ideal learning environment is a traditional classroom setting. For others, it may be learning from home with support for the family through our online academy.
At Calibre Academy, we offer an exceptional online school for students from kindergarten through to the eighth grade. Our online elementary school and the online middle school meets or exceeds the standards set forth by the Arizona Department of Education. It is designed to prepare students for their future, including continuing with virtual learning or transitioning to a traditional classroom environment. Many of our students complete middle school through online learning, while others may only attend virtually for a year or two.
What to Expect
Many parents are new to homeschooling children, and it can seem like a daunting task. Our virtual academy is designed to support parents and students throughout their educational program. Our free online school uses the best teaching methods to engage and inspire learners while also providing the practical support parents need to ensure their children have the educational foundation for lifelong learning.
Parents and students access our online school programs with a schedule that works for their lives. This includes choosing when to study and work on academics throughout the day. All the courses are self-paced, which allows students to take more time with challenging concepts or to build confidence in a particular subject area.
Calibre Academy offers an online kindergarten, a virtual elementary school, and an online middle school that uses the same academic year calendar as traditional schools. This means that families have the same holidays and start and end dates for the year as other schools for easy planning and scheduling.
The online learning academy offers open enrollment periods as well as spring and fall enrollment periods. Throughout the school year, students and parents have access to certified teachers online, by phone, or during in-person meetings. Students are invited to our campus for in-person assistance or to participate in our extracurricular activities.
While our online learning academy involves distance learning for students, they are still part of our elementary and middle school community. They participate in highly interactive activities with certified teachers and learn the same content and curriculum as their peers throughout the state.
Students complete grade-level appropriate courses in mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies. The courses are designed to build on learning, providing students with the skills they need to progress to the next grade level upon completion.
Our additional courses include physical education, arts, Spanish language, and computer technology. These are always popular with students and provide opportunities to expand their practical skills as well as their knowledge base.
As one of the top online charter schools in the Phoenix, AZ, area, Calibre Academy makes it easy for students and parents to use non-traditional learning options for a year or throughout the elementary and middle school years.
