What to Expect
Audeo Charter School operates very differently from most traditional public schools. Read below to learn what to expect from your experience at Audeo, or check out “About Audeo” to learn more about our program details and philosophy.
Personalized Education Plan
The first step you take as a student at Audeo is to participate in a credit audit. Your Audeo counselor will look at the academic credits you have coming into our school and compare them to the requirements of your goal credits, no matter what path you decide. For example, if you choose to graduate with Audeo and attend a four-year university, your counselor will compare your existing credits to the graduation requirements as well as university entrance requirements, and help you build a schedule for classes that will enable you to meet your goals for graduation and university. If you are falling behind at your current school and need to catch up, your counselor will compare your existing credits to the credit level and type of your goal program, and will help you build a schedule of Audeo classes that allow you to accelerate your learning and return to your program. Your counselor will talk to you about your goals, learning style, test scores, and current interests to help you build a schedule that’s right for you. This schedule of classes and strategy for success is called a Pathways Personalized Education Plan (PPEP).
After you have set up your PPEP with a counselor, you work one-on-one with your teacher at your learning center to succeed in your studies. Your teacher will talk with you and your parents about your progress and development in your academic studies to make sure that your PPEP is updated and accurate to match any changing goals, career interests, or academic achievements. A teacher may offer any class to you at any time, and courses take 3-4 weeks to complete. Our students study one or two courses at a time.
There will be other students in class with you as well. Any student in the classroom can take any course, and our classrooms are designed for quiet, focused study. This means that you won’t be in a room full of students asking questions you already know the answers to, competing for your teacher’s attention, or distracting you from the challenges of schoolwork. Your teacher will be available to work one-on-one with you during this time to answer questions about your studies or introduce new material, and your teacher is always available by email for the days you aren’t in the classroom. Often, teachers will work to bring together multiple students taking the same course or in the same field of study. They schedule field trips, group learning seminars, and small group activities to allow you to take advantage of the same learning opportunities as a traditional public school, without the disadvantages of a traditional setting.
