Jewish Virtual Academy aims to provide boys and girls with an interactive, individualized program in small and personal classes.
Online learning is not for everyone. But this past school year proved that some children thrive by being at home and learning remotely. The warm comfort of a child’s own space coupled with an interactive, individualized program may be just what he needs to flourish.
Rabbi Mendel Zajac of Los Angeles, CA, has thus launched Jewish Virtual Academy (JVA), a frum online school for girls and boys from 4th – 8th grade.
JVA was founded with one purpose – to build a safe space for all students to grow, learn and create with each passing day. Through a unique teaching approach and a truly passionate staff, the school helps students develop academically and personally to the highest level.
Classes are small in size – 10-12 students – with a focus on skill based learning, giving every student the fundamental tools needed to be able to take the next step of growth in learning on their own.
Subjects include Mishnayos/Gemara, Chumash, Halacha, Navi and Parsha. In addition the school teaches a curriculum that gives students the bigger picture of their learning, such as Jewish History Timeline and the taryag mitzvos.
JVA currently offers the following classes classes:
Boys: 6th – 7th grade Monday – Friday 8:30 – 11:00 AM (PST)
Girls: 4th – 5th grade Monday – Friday 8:30 – 11:00 AM (PST)
Boys: 4th – 5th grade Monday – Thursday 2:30 – 4:30 PM (PST)
A minimum of four students is needed to open any additional classes.
