Bradford Academy Virtual Learning Program Web banner with two Bradford students on computers

This year at Bradford Academy, K-12 will be 100% virtual through the first quarter of the school year.

Students will remain in the virtual learning program for at least the first quarter, then options will be reconsidered. The Virtual Learning Program will feel fundamentally different from the emergency learning that took place in the spring of 2020.

During the virtual learning model, students will have access to scheduled live, real-time teaching and learning (synchronous) and record teaching and learning on your own schedule (asynchronous) instruction with live Bradford teacher-hosted sessions, including robust content, ongoing feedback and assessment cycles and consistent opportunities for peer collaboration.
