Learning Customized for Each Student
At Nexus Academy, we know that students are most successful when their studies meet their personal goals, interests, and abilities, so we create customized education programs to match.
For each new student, we carefully evaluate his or her strengths, needs, and goals to develop a personalized learning plan that works best for him or her. Then, as students begin working in our rich digital curriculum, our on-site and virtual teachers, and Success Coaches carefully monitor daily data about students’ performance and adjust the personalized learning program to meet their needs.
For example, students are dynamically grouped for classroom instruction—both on campus and online—based on their performance in the curriculum, with new groups formed every week or two to focus on particular skills and concepts. (Nexus Academy is distinctive in that it offers extensive support.) Students who are struggling in math or English may meet daily with their face-to-face teachers and may even report to campus during their normal “off-campus hours” to catch up, while students who are on track earn greater flexibility in their classroom scheduling.
Meanwhile, true to their titles, Success Coaches use data to create personalized action plans, helping students set ongoing goals and make needed improvements. They also work closely with on-campus and online teachers, students, and parents to communicate action plan items, track progress, and assist with assignments. It’s a holistic educational approach that makes learning more successful and makes students feel supported and rewarded for their hard work.
