Get two months of Adventure Academy for just $5!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

Do you have elementary or middle school aged kids who love online gaming? You might want to check out Adventure Academy!!

Adventure Academy Fall Special

Adventure Academy — a new educational MMO game created specifically for kids in elementary and middle school — is currently running a limited time special!

You can get two months for just $5 right now — which is a savings of 74% off the regular monthly price!

Developed by the top video gaming designers and crafted by a team of curriculum experts, Adventure Academy is a highly engaging and creative platform that focuses on building critical knowledge and skills in language arts, math, social studies, science, and more!

Adventure Academy features thousands of educational learning activities, such as videos, reading experiences, games, quizzes, and many other interactive elements— all within the frameworks of U.S. (and international) curriculum standards.

I checked it out and it plays a lot like an adventure game (think Zelda!) but within an educational framework. It’s really cool!

If you wish to continue with the service after two months, you’ll be billed at $9.99 per month.

If you do not wish to continue with the service, be sure to cancel your subscription before the first two months ends so that you avoid any future charges to your credit card. It’s very easy to cancel at any time by logging in and clicking “my account.”

{If you’d rather try it for free, you can still sign up for a free 30-day trial here. You just won’t be able to take advantage of this introductory two month offer. You’ll be billed $9.99 per month after the free trial, if you wish to continue.}

Go here to sign up for two months of Adventure Academy for just $5.
