California Virtual Academy (CAVA) and the K12 Program
(Palm Springs, CA)
CAVA + An Independent Learner = Not a Good Fit
My daughter used California Virtual Academy (CAVA), and the K12 program, for 7th grade. She is extremely gifted, and was very bored with the hours of what she called busy-work on the computer. She didn't feel like she learned anything during the year, and didn't enjoy doing her schoolwork at all. It was completely free, but we had to box-up and return all of the school materials after the year was over, which was kind of an ordeal. CAVA is great for a child who needs structure, but for an independent learner, it is likely to not be a good fit.
Thanks for sharing your CAVA/K12 experience, Victoria! I appreciate your input and am sure others will find it helpful. Blessings, Heather :)
