MISSION & PHILOSOPHY

TAKING PUBLIC SCHOOLING VIRTUAL THROUGHOUT TEXAS

OUR MISSION

iSchool Virtual Academy will provide a personalized approach to learning that helps students meet their individual goals.  Using an innovative online curriculum and unique instructional approach, iSchool Virtual Academy will challenge students to take ownership of their academic success while becoming lifelong learners.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

iSchool Virtual Academy serves students who may have experienced challenges in other academic settings, but who also have a focused desire to take ownership of their learning.  Our most successful students are those who can benefit from a flexible program of state-aligned courses that individualizes their learning experience by first identifying their existing knowledge and skills and then focusing on strengthening areas they have not yet mastered.

The daily learning experience involves a high level of interaction with teachers and fellow students. iSchool Virtual Academy serves students who are self-motivated. They will be taught by highly qualified professional educators who are masters in their content area and trained to teach in an online environment.

The classroom-learning environment utilizes an online curriculum that targets individual learner’s needs.  The curriculum is aligned to Texas academic content standards and is designed to cover the full content in each core subject by the end of each academic year. This occurs through a targeted approach to instruction informed by data and existing student knowledge.

iSchool Virtual Academy’s educational model is designed to encourage learning habits that keep the student’s mind inquiring and engaged. Students achieve academic success by being able to learn any time, any place and within an organized flexible learning environment. This learning environment also empowers students to take ownership of their education and develop 21st-century education skills.

LETTER TO PARENTS

Dear Families,

In keeping with ResponsiveEd®’s values, iSchool Virtual Academy welcomes partnering with you as an active participant in your child’s education. At iSchool Virtual Academy, you and your student receive, free of cost, a quality curriculum, a user-friendly platform, highly qualified teachers, invested administrators, and a personalized experience that meets your unique needs.

iSchool Virtual Academy uses the research-based and proven Comprehend curriculum to serve the needs of Texas students in grades 3-12. Using this curriculum as a baseline for learning, iSchool Virtual Academy then tailors your student’s experience based on their current levels of mastery. Our teachers are highly qualified, Texas-certified teachers, with special training to teach in a virtual environment. To help ensure you receive the support you need at a time when you need it, they provide instructional support to our students in a variety of settings, including small group and one-to-one sessions as well as scheduled after hour opportunities. Our teachers identify the skills your student needs to develop, and then help schedule the support your student needs to succeed.

iSchool Virtual Academy is not limited to formal academics. Teachers also organize school outings to both enhance class learning and provide opportunities for social interaction among peers and families.

We look forward to welcoming you to the iSchool Virtual Academy and ResponsiveEd family.

In Service to You and Your Student,
iSchool Virtual Academy Administration
