Online Curriculum

Online Curriculum

Self Development Academy (SDA) has always been on the leading-edge of education, and we continue to be one of the leading elementary schools in Arizona thanks to our digital curriculum and unique online learning capabilities. In addition to online textbooks, assignments, and assessments, SDA utilizes distance education platforms like Google Classroom that keep students connected with their teachers and peers.

The other reason SDA is among the best charter elementary schools in the Valley is our integrated and enhanced curriculum that provides students with new and exciting opportunities to learn and develop their talents and skills. SDA’s unique focus on enhanced curriculum and experiences makes learning more meaningful, impactful, and, most importantly, more rewarding. Of course, this experience is not lost on our online students. In addition to our core curriculum, SDA plans to offer remote learning opportunities including:
