Middle School Academics
Curriculum that Empowers
At Washington Virtual Academies (WAVA), we believe in finding new ways of learning that work for all kinds of students. That's why we use the Stride K12 curriculum. It was created by an experienced team of educators using proven instructional approaches.
Discover Stride Career Prep
Middle school students begin to consider more long-term goals by discovering their interests in various career fields. Our Stride Career Prep program allows 7th and 8th graders to take a two-course series of career exploration where they get a broad overview of job fields, progressing from general information to more in-depth study into specific career opportunities. This insight will help them better choose a Stride Career Prep pathway in high school, giving them a competitive edge for college and career.
Choice of Standard or FLEX Program
Families can choose the standard WAVA program or the new FLEX Program. Both use the same quality curriculum from Stride K12. The standard program features required online synchronous sessions called Class Connects and is best for students who need live instructional time with teachers. The FLEX Program has only one required Class Connect each week and is well-suited for independent learners with engaged Learning Coaches.
