VIRTUAL SCHOOL DEFINED

 

Miami-Dade Online Academy is the Miami-Dade County Public Full-Time Virtual School.  We offer a comprehensive Kindergarten through 12th grade academic program that guides students to build educational capacity, develop independent thinking, and promote innovative creativity.  

What does a school day look like in a virtual school?  Students under the guidance of their parent/guardian work together every day using their daily planner to follow the course work strategically created by a professional teacher certified by the State of Florida.   The teacher individualizes each plan based on the student’s needs and academic capability.  Parents and students schedule their school time at their convenience in the comfort of their home.  Each course is created to give students the opportunity to understand concepts and deepen their understanding of the ideas and skills necessary to successfully apply their learned knowledge to real life.  All students are assigned six courses.  In Kindergarten to third grade, students work in school approximately 20 hours a week.  In 4-12 grade, students are assigned six courses that build on prior knowledge for approximately 30 hours a week.  Grades are finalized based on performance twice a year at the end of each semester in January and in June. Acquiring academic skills via this program sharpens skills more uniquely than any other type of learning experience because of the educational concentration and innate parent-student relationship.

As a family, the experience of learning together fosters mental respect, develops an understanding of family commitment and dedication.  Parents have a natural relationship with their children that heightens the educational experiences.  Parents and students work together on assignments, apply knowledge learned to projects, attend live sessions with classroom teachers via the Internet, and communicate freely with their child’s teachers and school administration using email or phone conferences. Parents are welcomed and respected.  Students are respected and appreciated.  Each experience brings the family closer together. It is a commitment to virtually educate and it takes dedication.  It is worth it because your child is worth it.
