Upper Elementary

For its core academic subjects in Upper Elementary, (Grades 3-6) Vero Beach Academy teaches as appropriate for each grade level: Reading, Grammar, Writing, Math, History, Science, Handwriting and Bible.

Vero Beach Academy primarily uses BJU Press for our in class curriculum. BJU Press goes beyond facts and processes, so textbooks direct students to think for themselves. They are encouraged to use discernment and to consider their worldview in everyday situations. Our textbooks help students to develop skills in critical thinking with inductive teaching, hands-on-learning, and probing questions.   

Homeschool lesson plans consist of engaging stories with comprehension questions, extended response questions, graphic organizers, enrichment ideas, hands on math examples, teaching aids and fact practice. The curriculum provided focuses on exposing students to a variety of strategies and real world approach. 

VBA also offers Family Style Planning for various subjects to allow families to homeschool efficiently and with ease. Contact us for more info about our Upper Elementary programming!
