Any Time, Any Place
A New Way of Education
Dream Academy is a Hybrid-HyFlex School.
This model provides a minimized grade/class/course structure with open schedules and full online access. We provide 100% flexibility for on-campus or remote learning.
Our curriculum consists of 100% digital courses and libraries, selected and sequenced so that students can pace individually. We also provide regular live teaching, where teachers customize and create enrichment and/or remedial work. We are student-centric, where students work at their own pace.
Placement and 'Pandemic Learning Loss'
When a student enrolls, the first step is a Math and Language Arts/Reading Assessment. This assessment helps identify gaps that have occurred though past challenges and strengths that are present to build upon.
We are fully aware that many students have gaps in skills. The critical nature of many of these gaps affects learning in many ways. Quite often, a missed skill can have a snowball effect throughout the rest of their school career. A step back may be needed to sharpen up these skills, but the benefits far outweigh the extra work. We work hard to isolate specifics and address any deficiencies.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had far reaching impacts on our kids. The buzz has been 'Pandemic Learning Loss'. While Dream Academy students were able to transition from in-person to remote learning seamlessly, many schools were not as well prepared. This resulted in a significant setback to the students struggling the most. Dream Academy's standards-based approach allows not only the 'Pandemic' students to isolate missing skills, but ALL students.
The Coach Approach
Supporting our Lead Educators, our Learning Coaches take a holistic approach to student success. Through initial training and required professional development, you can be sure that your coach has access to the most current and relevant tools available to guide your individual success.
Each Tier is managed by our Lead Educators, developing and presenting academics. Each Learning Center is staffed by Learning Coaches to provide in-person support.
Social Emotional Wellness
Now more than ever, mental wellness of our students is a priority. All students are instructed in Social Emotional concepts throughout their time at Dream Academy. All students learn about life and mental wellness. Our classes include everything from Addiction Awareness to Goal Setting. We work hard to provide the social-skills needed to succeed as an adult and for the rest of their lives.
