Current Wenatchee School District Student registration form

Wenatchee Internet Academy

In the 20/21 school year, and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, WSD created the online school as a choice for families concerned about sending their children back to school for in-person instruction this fall and for those students who prefer an online learning environment. The success of the program has led to the continuation of this K-12 alternative learning format.

Wenatchee Internet Academy (WIA) is a full-time online classroom program that provides daily facilitated courses for K-8 students in the Wenatchee School District (WSD). WIA presents students with a robust, interactive learning experience with a certificated WSD teacher.  K-8 curriculum is STEM-focused, project learning based, and aligned with Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.  

High School 9th-12th students will have access to their coursework 24/7 via the Apex Virtual Learning platform and work independently.  A WSD Mentor Teacher will be available for daily zoom meetings and support.

Our Mission

  • Celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Create a safe online learning environment
  • Support students’ social and emotional learning
  • Provide access and opportunity to career-focused STEM lessons and experiences

K-8 Format

Daily Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) Online School

  • Mornings: Zoom School focused on ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies Standards 
  • Afternoons:  Families can pre-register for weekly, WIA teacher-led, in-person, afternoon, rotating electives, such as:  coding, engineering, drama, art, music, writing, poetry, obstacle courses, hiking/walking, and more. They can also use afternoon time for any pre-planned family activities/lessons (piano, athletics).
  • End of each quarter:  All students will participate in a culminating field experience related to their Science unit.  Field experiences will be presented in-person and live-streamed so each student has opportunity and access to the learning.
  • Road School w/Mrs. Brown & the Staff:  Throughout the year, teachers will travel to different locations around our community, our state, our region, and our country to expose students and families to real-world connections & careers.  These learning adventures will happen during morning zoom instruction and will relate to our STEM-focused curriculum.
  • Flexible Access to Curriculum & Learning: WIA teachers will teach STEM-focused lessons and incorporate literacy and Tribal Sovereignty state standards. All assignments, documents, resources, monthly student progress, and grades will be housed in Canvas and can be accessed by students and families at any time.  
  • AVID: All WIA classes will focus on WICOR (writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading) using  AVID-organized folders & binders.  AVID is a program that promotes critical thinking and setting high expectations for each student through rigor and engagement.   AVID’s mission is to close the opportunity gap.

9-12 Format

  • Students will access their course work through the Apex portal:  alvs.apexvs.com.
