The Brandywine Heights Virtual Academy (BHVA) is an online program using courses through Accelerate and Pearson Connexus. Through the virtual academy, the Brandywine Heights School District offers numerous online courses to satisfy student needs and specific situations. Our students have the choice between Accelerate or Pearson Connexus programs and curriculum. Students may choose to take their courses online, and/or choose to take courses in our brick and mortar school.
Both providers provide a high quality, accredited online program for grades K-5. The online courses are custom-designed by teams of curriculum experts to engage students in a multi-dimensional learning experience. Rich in scope and sequence, our proprietary lesson plans are designed for student mastery and tailored to diverse learning styles. The courses include web-based curriculum, highly qualified teachers, and a proprietary technology platform specifically designed for elementary school education (grades K-5). Accelerate and Pearson Connexus allow students in grades K-5 to experience a flexibility that the traditional, structured classroom environment cannot offer.
