Elevated Digital Academy

Elevated is LTUSD’s online school. The school was born in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic but wow, has online education changed since then! If you are thinking back to the days of PJ’s all day and isolation, that is certainly no longer the case when it comes to remote learning. Our students are engaged in dynamic, live, online classes every day with a rigorous curriculum taught by teachers that have an average of 15 years experience in our local Lake Tahoe schools.  Elevated also hosts in-person weekly events such as field trips, labs and other experiential learning activities. There has long been a request for a fully online school to meet the needs of students who wish to focus on competitive athletics, need more flexibility and family time to travel or who would simply like an alternative option to a traditional “brick and mortar” school.  

Some of our 8th graders shared in English class today that they think the biggest positives of Elevated are: the teachers are kind and much more accessible to get one on one help when needed;  they enjoy the flexibility to work from anywhere; and the independence to get work done at their own pace.
