Elementary & Middle School Curriculum

Nurturing Young Minds

At CPA, we nurture inquisitive minds. Throughout our courses you will find certain recurring themes that build on the previous grades' teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of knowledge. Our individualized approach means your child can go as fast or slow as he needs to. And with more than 700 lessons per subject, he or she can dive deeply into areas of interest.

Superior Curriculum

The curriculum was created by a team of experts at K12 using proven instructional approaches. Our six core courses*—language arts/English, math, science, history, art, and music—make for a rich comprehensive education. The lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson she is studying. So a story about a king who lost his wife dovetails with an examination of the architecture and history of the Taj Mahal, built as a monument to a dead queen.

Bringing Lessons to Life

Lessons come to life with a rich mixture of online and offline teaching tools, including interactive animations, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original music and videos, and materials for hands-on experiments. Lessons are followed by assessments so you can be sure that your child has mastered a particular concept before moving on, and built-in planning and progress tools make it easy to keep on track.
