Creating a Plan
Upon enrollment, a credentialed “On-Demand” Teacher is assigned to each student who, in collaboration with the student and parents, assesses the student’s current needs and goals and creates a plan for rapid advancement, focusing solely on one or two subjects at a time. A post-high school education or career plan is included in the meeting. Assigned to each student for a full year or more, the teacher supervises all subjects studied and is personally held accountable to inspire and produce self-motivated and self-disciplined students who succeed not only academically, but also socially through teamwork and community service. As a result, On-Demand Teachers adjust assignments to align with the goals and interests of the student and also personally act as necessary to ensure achievement. For example, if a student is late to an appointment, teachers contact either the student or the parents within minutes to identify and address any needs and teach accountability.
Helping Students Meet Rigorous Standards
While students, parents, and On-Demand Teachers collaborate to decide how, what, when, and where the student studies and learns, Audeo tracks and maintains rigorous standards. To obtain credit, C or better work is required and must be submitted on time. To advance a grade level, all work must be at grade level C or better. Students must also advance socially as well as academically. In order to graduate, the quality of team collaboration and communication skills must be at a C grade level or better and 120 hours of community service learning or participation in our work experience program is also required.
Audeo is unique because we transform students. Students become self-sustaining learners and employable, self-sufficient citizens. They are inspired to be self-motivated, self-disciplined, productive, and socially adept. If academically lagging, they rapidly catch up to grade level with a C and an improved GPA. They achieve academic and social competence and graduate.
Unlike traditional schools, Audeo:
- Provides one-on-one, personalized, distraction-free instruction, with consistent support and mentoring from one Teacher assigned to each student for a year or more. On-Demand Teachers are personally involved and held accountable for individual student success.
- Sets rigorous standards and measures each student’s level of initiative and self-discipline, productivity, and achievement of academic credit and social skills. C work or better is required for credit and for advancing a grade level. Team collaboration and communication skills are required at C grade level or above.
- Requires community service and/or work internship at a level exceeding that of most public or private schools.
