Parents that have questions are encouraged to reach out. We invite great conversations around standards, curriculum, and rigor."

Our K-8th graders are taught by a live teacher at their campus using technology and online resources for supplementary instruction. They will be in blended-grade classrooms which focus on small groups organized by ability.

9-12 graders receive instruction with all high school students across Athenian eAcademies. Teachers will remotely deliver lesson and students will access assignments and assessments online. During class time, teachers will be available for independent or small-group conferences to provide help and/or higher-level instruction based on student readiness.

The curriculum Athenian eAcademy uses is a mix of both online instruction and classes with a teacher who is present, as well as heavy exposure to analytical software. The benefit of this mixed approach will enable small group instruction and time with the teacher as well as the benefits of the immediate feedback provided by analytical software.

There are many incredible benefits to utilizing online, analytical software. First, it generates almost instant data for instructional purposes. Traditional 'data driven instruction' techniques may assess data every few weeks, possibly weekly at best. Modern technology allows analyzed data to be available daily, immediately available upon the students logging out of respective programs. Second, the analytical nature allows instant feedback for the students, who otherwise would be more reliant upon traditional grading for feedback. Research shows that when students receive immediate or nearly immediate feedback greater learning and retention takes place[1]. Finally, differentiated instruction with the rich, instant data will allow both our live and virtual teachers to almost immediately provide different lesson plans to deliver the same, rigorous standards of instruction.

Athenian eAcademy is dedicated to ensuring all students receive a rigorous, college preparatory education, and our commitment does not end at the Athenian eAcademy door. We view our work as one way to expand capacity for academic growth in general, and blended initiatives in particular. Therefore, we will seek opportunities to share Athenian eAcademy practices and strategies with other schools (traditional and charter) and the state at-large. Further, Athenian eAcademy is committed to learning from the best practices implemented throughout the country, piloting and adopting those practices that align with the Athenian eAcademy mission and academic model. We recognize the needs of small rural districts to scale up reform and sustain excellence, and Athenian eAcademy shares this important goal, remaining committed to all of our students. Moreover, Athenian eAcademy will further bolster its capacity to bring choice and innovation to all students through our high school college preparatory-focused curriculum.
