Virtual Learning Program Options, K-5 (2020-21)
ECS is proud to offer two K-5 virtual learning program options to meet the needs of students and families learning from home. Students in our virtual programs are offered concurrent learning opportunities, allowing them to engage in live class lessons with their in-person classmates. Students will engage daily with teachers and classmates through live instruction, small group meetings, and virtual Chapel. Students enrolled in Virtual-ECS participate in core and specialist lessons along with science and social studies, while those in Virtual ECS Flex focus on the core lessons of reading, writing, math and Bible. Students in both programs will enjoy lunch time and field trips with their virtual classmates.
Ideal for families desiring a full school day experience for their at-home students.
Ideal for families desiring a more flexible, shorter online school experience for their at-home students.
