    Does anyone know what kind of resources there are for computer adaptive programs at the elementary level? Much of what I have seen recommended is for older students. I know that Beast Academy starts at 2nd grade, but what about other subject areas? Are there any "all-in-one" programs? I may try to get DD's school on board with supplementing her regular classes with one, but I can't sell them on 15 different programs. She will be entering 3rd next year if that helps. Thanks!

    Athena's Advanced Academy ( has a nice selection of courses online for younger students. They do not run a straight curriculum, rather enrichment. But it is common for their students to take a course to supplement the classroom. Historically, they were known to offer courses for younger children, but they are building their program quite a bit to keep the children engaged as they age.
