Online Homeschool Programs for K-12 Students
After much research, we chose to use Odysseyware Curriculum to deliver our homeschool programs.
Developed by top educators, it provides a complete online learning experience for kids in kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, and high school.
Odysseyware Curriculum allows for comprehensive, customized programs for each student, and includes rigorous core courses, elective courses, and career-technical courses. Single classes are also available.
Our engaging lessons hold your child’s interest and boost retention, with interactive digital content making learning more compelling and fun.
We encourage independence and responsibility through student-driven assignments. We provide anytime online access that’s tailored to appeal to today’s web-savvy kids.
We use the the Renzulli Learning System which was developed by American educational psychologist Joseph Renzulli, and is designed to allow students to apply, deepen, and extend their learning.
Firstly, each student takes a detailed online questionnaire which allows the Renzulli software to generate a personal profile of their learning styles, interests, and expression styles. This makes it easier for teachers to get to know their students, and effectively differentiate instruction.
With more than 40,000 online educational resources in the Renzulli database, teachers can find activities that align to specific skills, objectives, or state and Common Core Standards.
Students can engage in self-directed learning by exploring safe, fully-vetted resources that have been specifically matched to their individual profiles.
We believe that building the curriculum around the child's strengths empowers teachers to make a difference in the lives of their students.
These resources place a strong emphasis on problem-solving, creativity, and critical thinking skills, helping our learners to become college and career ready.
High school seniors must achieve passing grades in all their subjects if they are to be awarded a diploma from Adirondack Learning Academy.
Students need to complete 23.5 credits of academic and elective courses to earn a college preparatory academic diploma.
