Whether due to travel, medical needs, or other reasons, many parents are searching for learning options other than traditional brick-and-mortar schools. Embarking on the journey of online elementary education can be a significant step towards ensuring your child’s success. This roadmap is designed to offer parents and guardians a comprehensive guide for navigating the transformative educational path of online learning and provide insight to their role in online learning success.
Discover how your active involvement and eAchieve Academy’s tuition-free online elementary school offerings combine to create a bright future for your young learner.
Understanding Tuition-Free Online Elementary Schools
A virtual public charter school is not homeschooling, even though students may primarily attend school from home. Online public charter schools are authorized by a locally-elected school board that has a public school curriculum and certified teachers. Wisconsin residents under 21 years of age are eligible to attend a Wisconsin virtual charter school tuition- free. Out-of-state parents or guardians should contact the virtual charter school they wish to enroll their child in for tuition information.
eAchieve Academy is Wisconsin’s premier 4k-12 online public charter school solely operated by the School District of Waukesha and not affiliated with any for-profit national education partner. Our tuition-free online elementary school offerings provide numerous benefits for both students and their family. With our comprehensive curriculum and experienced educators, we make high-quality online education accessible.
The Parent’s Role in Online Learning
At eAchieve, we believe that parents and guardians play a crucial role in their child’s online learning journey. We recognize the importance of your involvement and work to create a strong partnership between you and educators. Here’s how to contribute to your child’s success:
Engage in your child’s education by providing support when needed. At the elementary level, students often require extra help in the beginning to leverage digital tools and resources used for elementary school online learning. At eAchieve Academy, we provide laptops to students in 1st grade or higher and iPads to 4k and 5k students absolutely free. Learn more about our free Laptop and iPad Program.
Helping your young learner practice skills such as typing on the keyboard and turning on the camera for video calls will make the transition to online elementary school learning much smoother.
Monitoring Progress and Assessments
Keeping track of your student’s progress and assessments is critical to identify if they may be falling behind and need extra help or if they could benefit from accelerated learning options. eAchieve makes it easy to keep up on academic progress and celebrate growth with 24/7 grade book access, progress reports, and activity reports.
At eAchieve, parents or guardians of elementary school students will meet weekly with the teacher online to review previous progress, share observations and upcoming activities. Our open communication channels ensure that you are always informed about your child’s academic performance and any concerns or achievements.
Create a Supportive Learning Environment
A major benefit of online elementary school is that students can take classes in a more familiar environment with fewer distractions. To ensure your child thrives in an online learning environment, it is important to set your student up for a successful school experience.

eAchieve Stands Out Among Other Wisconsin Online Elementary Schools
eAchieve Academy is not just an online elementary school—it’s a partner in your child’s educational journey.
