A1A - ATHLETES 1ST ACADEMY

Academics

When homeschooling with A1A, you are free to purchase and use the curriculum of your choice.


If you find choosing a curriculum daunting, you may schedule a consultation so that we may help you to choose OR you may purchase one of the two online curriculum options that we provide: Accelerate Education (secular) or Ignitia (Christian-themed).

Both programs are entirely self-paced so your students may work at their own speed, when and where their schedules allow.

Both programs automatically grade much of the student's work. However, various written assignments may require grading to be done by the parent. A teacher's guide is provided with both programs to make grading easy, and our staff is available to help you with any questions.

 

When you select one of these programs, we will enroll you with the publisher, manage your grades, and transfer them to your Assessment at the end of the year. 

Each of these online programs is available for an additional cost of $750/student per year.

You may add an Academic Support Package (availability is limited) to either program if you wish at the additional cost of $1500/student per academic year. 

Accelerate Education

Accelerate offers rich, engaging standards-based courses for students from a secular (non-religious) perspective and is available for all grades K-12.  Students are engaged in a variety of activities and assessments including, labs, journals, written assignments, discussions, and written exams. 

 

Students can explore a variety of interests through Accelerate’s Career and Technical Education (CTE), elective, and world language course offerings. 

 

Accelerate has a strong focus on literacy, especially for the earlier grades.  Reading aloud, building vocabulary, independent reading experience, writing skills, and speaking and listening practice are the tools Accelerate uses to build strong learners. 

 

While content is delivered through an online platform, hands-on opportunities are also a part of the courses in the early grades which require activities to be printed.  Also, some courses require additional materials that are usually found around your home.
