How Online Elementary and Middle School Work

Iowa Virtual Academy is a tuition-free online public school that uses the K12 curriculum, which is accessed via an online school as well as through more traditional methods. Materials are delivered right to the family's doorstep - including books, CDs, and even microscopes and cell samples.

We also partner parents and students with a certified teacher to help guide and track their progress through the curriculum. There will be frequent, synchronous, teacher-initiated sessions available to students, as well as face-to-face meetings and events.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized too, so IAVA students will always be well educated and well socialized.

Who is this intended for?

The Iowa Virtual Academy K-8 program serves students in grades K-8 who reside within the state of Iowa.

What are the costs?

Because IAVA is part of the public school system, Iowa Virtual Academy is tuition-free. The K12 curriculum is provided free of charge.
