What to expect for the
Kindergarten-4th Grade Experience
Ladue Online Academy elementary students will:
Follow a similar schedule to their in-person counterparts with a mixture of synchronous, or live, instruction and small group and independent work time. The elementary virtual experience will be similar to the one followed during the 2020-2021 school year.
Be combined into classrooms with students from across the district.
Participate in virtual Art, Music, and PE as part of the program.
Have access to the same supports and resources as our in-person students. Depending on the number of families interested in the Ladue Online Academy, this could mean attending in-person for certain programs such as SSD-provided classes or Idea Lab.
