What is Virtual Academy?
With this upcoming school year looking so different, we know that you as a parent are having to make a hard decision regarding whether or not your child will be attending school in person or continuing their education online.We know this decision is even more difficult for working parents. Here at RPGA we want to help make that decision a little easier by making sure your kids have a safe and fun place to go during the day while you are at work.
The goal of our Virtual Academy is to give parents peace of mind that their child is getting their school work done in a productive and supervised environment while maintaining social distancing. With this new transition of online learning, it is easy for students to get distracted, our job is to ensure they are staying engaged, on task, and to help with any technical difficulties that may occur. We will leave all the teaching to the professionals!
Plus, recess will be spent inside the gym, rain or shine!
