Flex Academy Night Schools
The Flex Academy Night School goal is to provide a flexible scheduling environment to accommodate work schedules, family obligations, daycare needs, or for students who prefer to work in the evening.
The Flex Academy Studio goal is for each Flex Student to graduate high school on time, with a postsecondary plan in place.
Night School Flex Teachers
The Flex Academy Night School will provide students access to an endorsed English, Social Studies, Math, and Science teacher one night a week, who provides content expertise and assessments. Flex Virtual Students can schedule time to come into the Flex Studio to meet with teachers for extra help and to take tests, as well as communicate via phone, email, and Skype.
Personalized Learning Plans
At Flex Academy Night School, students are supported to discover academics through a variety of approaches that enables them to individually refine a preferred learning style. This experience includes online, offline, and blended learning instruction, project-based learning, science labs, research, writing, group projects, and individual tutoring. Learning topics range from global, national, and local perspectives and are designed to relate the curriculum to real world experiences.
Students are assessed using the standards-referenced approach, which is instruction aligned to content-focused learning standards. Through the online program, Flex teachers guide the students through knowledge they are expected to learn, provide continual feedback for improvement, provide re-teaching opportunities when necessary, and allow numerous opportunities for practice. The results yield self-direction while preparing students for postsecondary goals.
The Flex Academy Night School program is designed to accommodate students who are in need of additional support as identified by the school’s student support staff. Priority for enrollment is given to re-engaged students and under credited seniors.
If you are a student who believes you might be missing credit, or likes to work at your own pace and is interested in an innovative learning environment, please contact your Flex School Administrator to see if you quality.
