Fairfax Global Academy runs very similarly to a "brick and mortar" school--the only difference is that our classes are online. Our program offers quality course material and instruction with hands-on support from live instructors for our lower school and academic advisors for our high school students. It is our goal to incorporate dynamic methodologies and a variety of educational technologies to support a wide array of diverse learning styles.

Our curricular approach includes a variety of learning targets, open-ended assignments, weekly class discussion activities, collaborative activities, and hands-on lab assignments or projects.
Online Education Approach
Elementary and middle schoolers will have live, full-day class instruction with a teacher present at all times. This means they can easily form a classroom community with other students through class discussions and small group work. Students will alternate their core subjects with electives throughout the day via Zoom classrooms in addition to self-guided PE requirements and a daily reading period.
High school students are given the opportunity to do their work at their own pace and in their own time, making it a great fit for students with busy schedules. Through our accredited online modules offered students can learn the content and complete all classwork, quizzes, tests, and projects. Our teachers are responsive via email and available to meet virtually with students at designated office hours each week so that no student is left behind in their coursework. College counseling and volunteer hour opportunities will be provided to high school students as well.
All FGA courses utilize a blend of virtual material and physical textbooks developed by McGraw Hill Education, specifically chosen to meet the academic objectives of Fairfax Global Academy. FGA will coordinate distribution upon registration, and have books mailed and access codes emailed to students before the start of the semester. All courses also use a variety of open educational resources and web-based materials for dissemination of content.
