Our Parent Community
Parents are an integral part of the Audeo experience. Audeo parents become very involved in the learning process by attending weekly and monthly meetings with the teachers in the learning center, monitoring their student’s daily and weekly progress at home, attending the annual fall Open House, and participating in the spring Senior Exit Orientation. Audeo collaborates with several community partners to ensure that any resource a parent or student may need to successfully meet their academic goals is available to them.
Why Audeo Could Be Right For Your Student
Supervised Independent Study: Audeo provides supportive, supervised independent study without tuition fees to students grades 6-12. Students at Audeo study one or two courses at a time and are expected to complete one course every three to four weeks. Students progress at an individual pace, receive tutoring or enrichment as needed, and participate in small group instruction to meet academic goals. Students earn course credits and attendance by successfully participating in school activities and completed lessons that demonstrate mastery of the state standards. Audeo’s implementation includes a successful model of collaborative learning, teaching across the curriculum, self-paced lessons, and year-round open enrollment based on a university model.
Personal 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 as needed by each student. A post-high school education or career (“Student Pathway”) recommendation is included in the plan.
On-Demand Teachers: 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, 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.
Non-Campus Environment: Each Altus school provides a professional, quiet environment for learning, in small groups or one-on-one, with a credentialed Teacher who is available on demand. School sites are located at major retail centers or office buildings throughout the county, and several include work study employment opportunities.
Rigorous Standards: While students, parents, and On-Demand Teachers collaborate to decide how, what, when, and where the student studies and learns, each Altus school 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 addition, 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 work internship is also required.
The Audeo Difference
Audeo schools are unique because they transform students. Students become self-sustaining learners and employable, self-sufficent 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 at least a C and 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.
Audeo is designed for:
- Students who need a flexible, personalized learning environment with singular focus on academic achievement. Audeo places special emphasis on enrolling students who are off-track and need to regain credits and succeed academically.
