Flex Academy Studios
Engaging Students, Discovering Success
The Flex Academy Studios are non-traditional 21st century classrooms that provide engaging courses for our students who are in need of credit recovery and enjoy learning from their own personalized instructional plan.
The blended-learning environment embraces students where they are, encourages a growth mindset, and celebrates the power of yet.
The Flex Academy Studio goal is for each Flex Student to graduate and complete high school with a post-secondary plan in place.
Flex Studio Teachers
Each studio has an endorsed English, Social Studies, Math, and Science teacher who provide content expertise and differentiated instruction. Students are assigned to each content teacher who personally tracks their credits, progress, personal goals, interest, and style of learning.
Blended Learning Curriculum
In the studio, students are supported to discovery academics through a variety of approaches that enables them to individually refine a preferred learning style. This experience includes online instruction, project-based learning, science labs, research, writing, group projects, and individual tutoring. Learning topics range from a global and national perspective to a local perspective, designed to relate the curriculum to real work experiences.
Students who are scheduled into the Flex Studio for two or more blocks, will attend an advisory course designed for team-building and a designing a post-secondary pathway based on students’ academic, vocational, and career goals and interests. This includes but is not limited to: resume building, college visits and applications, scholarship workshops, job applications, internship prospects, volunteer work, and other enrichment opportunities.
Students are assessed using the standards-referenced approach, which is instruction aligned to content focused learning standards. Flex teachers guide the students through knowledge they are expected to learn, provide continual feedback for improvement, re-teach when necessary, and allow numerous opportunities for practice. The results yield self-direction while preparing students for college.
The Flex Academy Studios are designed to accommodate those students identified by the Early Indicator System as a potential drop out and re-engaged students, and are in need of additional support as identified by the school’s student support staff. Priority for placement is given to re-engaged students and under credited seniors.
