The Lewis River Academy uses the individualized curriculum from K12 and Odysseyware for grades K-8.

A parent or student with parental guidance can take more or less control of the learning through various program options, including online courses or more traditional book learning. We will listen to your needs and to design a program to match them.

To ensure that we’re meeting the requirements of our users, the scope and sequence of each course is created based on national and state content standards.

LRA Curriculum Options

At LRA, we believe that parents are the first and most important educators for their children. Our learning programs expect that parents/learning coaches are actively involved to plan, read, tutor and grade/give feedback as the student works to complete lessons.

What Learning Looks Like

Parents plan and prepare lessons using hard-copy or online guidebooks, gather materials, then guide learners through the lesson.  Activities include hands-on manipulatives, literature and workbooks.

Parents/independent learners read through online lessons, then (help) learners complete online questions and writing assignments to process and practice the information.

Parents monitor student progress and grade student work as it is completed, providing feedback for the learner.

Recorded teacher video provides lesson along with visuals.  Printable guided notes reinforce key words and terms.

Teacher Comments

We love this program for its balance of online and offline activities for younger learners.  It is challenging, and requires daily parent leadership to help learners complete all parts of the lesson.  

This is a rigorous program which works best for strong readers or students with an adult actively reading and leading alongside them.  All materials are online, but can be printed for students to work offline and upload later.  If students are not strong typists, they will need to practice in order to fill in writer boxes.  

With video-based lessons and printable study guides, Edgenuity is a good fit for most students and suits a variety of learning styles.
