Upper Elementary

Vero Beach Academy's  Upper Elementary classrooms (Grades 3-5) use a blended curriculum.  


  Like the Lower Elementary classes, Abeka is used for Language, Grammar and the classroom reading text. However, VBA also supplements a variety of other research based curriculum. These complex and authentic texts are short and engaging which allow classes to focus on particular reading strategies and skills.  


For Math, VBA primarily uses the Florida Ready Mathematics program which implements active, real-world problem solving by exposing students to a variety of strategies and a deep skills based approach. 


The state standards, curriculum and project based instruction are all used to make leaning come alive for students.
