Sapphire Live Support

The Sapphire Live Program teacher support package is available to students in grades 3-9 and provides daily, synchronous instruction in a group setting for multiple classes.

Sapphire Live is our premier package for synchronous learning. This package is designed for a learning experience similar to a traditional brick-and-mortar school that is optimized and moved completely online. The package includes daily small group instruction for the core classes (math, English, science, history, and Bible) and some electives.

Students have the opportunity to build close relationships with their teachers and their peers as they receive instruction and guidance each morning. Students in the Sapphire program work in groups to complete projects facilitated by their teachers. Students in each class work on the same schedule and are expected to begin and end the school year close to the standard start and end dates.
