Georgia families are discovering the benefits of personalized learning for their first grader at Georgia Cyber Academy. Thanks to the commitment of our state-certified teachers, caring school staff, and the dedicated efforts of involved parents as their child's Learning Coach, students in first grade across Georgia are receiving the holistic support they need to learn and grow as they use innovative online curriculum.
In the first grade, Georgia Cyber Academy students build on those important fundamentals they learned in kindergarten, such as developing reading fluency; exploring the natural world; counting, reading, and writing numbers up to 500; telling time and counting money; and learning about lines, shapes, and colors. Regular real-time online classes provide a distraction-free environment where teachers can introduce new concepts and help reinforce the ones already covered in your student's daily coursework.
And because we know face-to-face social opportunities are so important, we host in-person field trips and activities across Georgia for first grade students and their families, so they can connect with teachers, students, and parents in their area to build a strong school community.

What is a MIC and how do I use it?
The Monthly Instructional Calendar (MIC) is used for each grade level in elementary school, Kindergarten through 5th grade. Learning Coaches should reference the MIC each day as it will guide students on what should be accomplished. Students should follow the MIC to complete the MIC assignments and lessons assigned each day. If not completed by the end of each grading cycle, a 0 will be earned. These assignments provide valuable information about student progress that help us focus our instruction in class connect sessions. Class connect session information and assessments that students are required to take during class are also included on the MIC. It is required that GCA elementary school students follow the MIC daily.
