Unprecedented Social/Emotional Support
Statistics firmly support that Social Emotional Learning (SEL) & Mentoring programs both increase student achievement.
Each and every student will be assigned a mentor, who will provide extensive social/emotional support and encouragement.
The mentoring staff will support students through one-one-one, small group, and whole class sessions.
Mentors will also collaborate with families to implement academic career plans for their students, as well as, provide direction.

Standardized Lessons
: Teachers don't lesson plan for major subjects. School approved lessons are utilized. This decreases variability from room to room, and increases measurability.
Proprietary school/proficiency/classroom management software
Proficiency-based Student Schedules
: Students showing mastery of a lesson are released from class to engage in other enriching activities. Students remaining receive needed attention.
Databased Lesson Assessments
: Students are assessed on each major subject lesson. Assessments results are databased, generating a daily report, which appropriately direct students who didn't get it, just need more practice, or achieved mastery.
Innovative Instruction cont.
Instruction-oriented School Periods
: Each school period allots for four built in segments instruction, practice, assessment, and remediation.
Engagement-oriented School Schedule
: The daily schedule consists of two parts: Learning periods, and Engagement Period (being the later half of the day).
Extended Year-round Schooling
