Falcon Virtual Academy in iConnect Zone offers the only K-12 blended-learning school in District 49. The academy is located at 6113 Constitution Avenue in Colorado Springs, where students benefit from a 21,000 square foot, state of the art building, sometimes referred to as a “Google meets Starbucks” environment. Curriculum is designed to be rigorous, relevant and personalized to meet the needs of all learners. The academy is a multidistrict school providing online educational opportunities for students across Colorado.[1]

Curricula[edit]

Falcon Virtual Academy uses the K12 curriculum for students in grades K-6, which is a core knowledge focus and requires a full-time parent-learning coach at home. Students in grades 7-12 use the Aventa Curriculum, a K12 product that features a college prep curriculum with authentic learning opportunities.

The blended learning facility offers students and their families an engaging environment. They can take advantage of face-to-face direct instruction and tutoring from certified teachers, experiential project-based learning course work combined with flexible virtual options and concurrent enrollment opportunities with Pikes Peak Community College for 9-12th graders.

Community[edit]

Falcon Virtual Academy believes that the relationship between school, students and families is paramount to a successful education experience. Families are welcome to tour the school and actively participate in each student’s academic journey. The virtual academy provides a variety of community events that foster socialization, collaboration and academic achievement to prepare students for success in the 21st century.
