Welcome to WAVA!

January 11th - 29th

We are here for you!

You know that your kids have something special inside them. We know it too. Washington Virtual Academies (WAVA) and K¹² ignite the minds of children like yours to bring learning and innate possibility alive. Together, we are helping Washington students in grades K-12 reach their true, personal potential.

This week, our FAST team is here to help you get everything set up. Our goal is to ensure all families are feeling confident and ready to go before their first day of school.

In this newsletter you will find:

  • A welcome video from our FAST team
