Our mission is to foster an engaging, virtual social environment that enables homeschool students to receive an equitable learning experience while becoming responsible creators and consumers of information on our networked world.
CORE VALUES: DIGITAL LITERACY | DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP | GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP | EQUITY | OPPORTUNITY
Our project-based learning curriculums are designed by certified educators to help students make interdisciplinary and real-world connections. Instruction is curated for students to improve cognitive thinking through collaborative research and multimedia resource production. Students prepare for careers and college by learning the importance of digital citizenship, how it's used to communicate knowledge, and how to strengthen critical thinking and analysis. Students are given multiple opportunities to deliberately reflect and assess their own comprehension; working collaboratively with their peers at a distance to curate skill-building projects.
Our classrooms are virtual spaces where students receive scaffolded, interactive instruction while engaging in digital and social learning. We are developing our own learning management system that integrates Google Classroom for asynchronous learning and video conferencing for live instruction. Our social community is a network where students can share learning, ideas, opinions, and comments with the larger learning community.
Our social network encourages students to increase their engagement through earning incentives and badges. The higher students climb on the leadership board, the more incentives can be earned.
In addition to our Emotional Wellness and Health courses, as well as, physical education activities, our Wellness Team provide our students with ongoing live academic and emotional support.
