Journey Education’s academics provides students with a strong foundation in reading, writing, grammar, math, science, and history. Students graduate from Journey as confident learners who are ready to begin a successful high school experience that will lead to higher education. We have found that our Journey graduates have successfully attended a variety of high school settings from private, charter, magnet, and public schools.
Personalized learning Journey offers a unique individualized education for its students. Multi-age grouping with a small teacher-to-student ratio enables your child to work at academic ability rather than age. The core subjects are offered at the same time throughout the grades. This facilitates students that are up to more rigorous academics to be challenged and avoids struggling students from falling through the cracks.
One-on-one initial assessment Following a tour of Journey Education, a one-on-one assessment with your child is scheduled to determine school acceptance as well as the child’s academic level in the areas of reading, spelling, writing, and math. The information from this assessment helps the administration and teachers plan accordingly in order to best challenge your child. At any time, based upon your child’s maturity and rate of learning, he can progress forward to higher levels. We believe there is no limit to your child’s potential.
Goals Beginning each quarter students meet individually with their teacher in order to choose an academic goal or goals they will work on. Throughout each nine weeks, students continually review and work on their goals with help and encouragement from teachers.
