You want to personally be involved in your child’s education but need an alternative to all the hours of planning that quality teaching requires. You want him to get that all-important foundation in reading, to develop character through good routines and habits, and to LOVE learning! Enjoy the best of both worlds of homeschooling and a traditional Christian school classroom with Abeka Academy! Our experienced, creative video teachers bring fresh ideas to make the K5 content come to life. The quick success that your kindergartner gains by learning to read phonetically makes reading so much fun! He will soon become an independent reader with stories that keep his interest. With Abeka Academy’s virtual program, you can easily homeschool more than one child at a time, even when your family is away from home.
As your child becomes acquainted with the students on the video, he will feel as though he is a part of the class. The teacher will even pause to give “students watching” a turn to participate in games, contests, and drills! While enjoying the fun and expanded learning of the classroom experience, your child will have the benefit of your one-on-one guidance at home as you listen to him read and recite and check his papers.
The prerecorded online video streaming or DVDs give you the flexibility to set your own daily schedule. The video lease provides a full 12 months to complete the 170 lessons and 6 months to complete 85 lessons for a semester. You also have the option to purchase either the Video & Books or Video (for those who may already have some of the materials and wish to purchase individual items separately). A video manual is provided with either option to help you stay on track with the video teacher. Also, record-keeping progress reports are included with both options to document your child’s progress through the school year.
Abeka Academy offers two different program types to meet your family’s specific needs. The Unaccredited program allows for more course flexibility and relies solely on the home teacher to keep track of student records. For an additional charge, the Accredited program provides official report cards and reliable record-keeping by our academic team. With either option, academic assistance is accessible through email, live chat, or phone. You'll also be able to choose between cursive and manuscript after the checkout process. Conveniently view our Homeschool Agreement before purchase to understand the requirements.
