ACADEMICS

History shows us mentoring relationships can be solid, productive, and powerful.

Mentors

Each mentor works with a limited number of students (approximately 10 to 12) helping them select from courses developed by Mentoring Academy staff or any of the other sources, then providing support academically and socially so they are successful. Mentors are available to schedule regular one on one sessions with students to improve their understanding of material and help keep them on track with their workload.

Flexible Schedule

Students can adjust schedules to meet schedules of their lives. School is held 9:00-5:30 each day, but courses are self-paced and tailored to the student. In school hours, students complete essentially all work so evenings can be spent relating to family and friends, reading books, and exploring projects that are dictated by student interests. Solid work in the school day is sufficient time to accomplish the goals.

Support

This union of great resources provides for dramatically more effective courses than single teachers can develop. The academics are then coupled with the support, mentoring, and social life that can be provided in face to face education.

This system allows for detailed monitoring of student learning so issues of motivation, organization, style, study skills can be addressed as soon as they manifest themselves. As well, projects can be integrated more effectively when compared to 20 student classes or single student self-paced settings.

Development

Students are able to connect their social development and academic development by sharing their work and ideas with each other. Also, many short-term courses are offered to enrich student lives outside traditional education such as auto maintenance, computer programming, and more.
