Have you ever tried an online school for your kids?
Whenever we spend extended time overseas, our kids attend an online school. All in all, our kids have done well, but I’ve found myself wishing that my kids had a better connections, and better one-on-one relationships, at their previous online school.
I wish I’d known about Provost Academy.
Provost Academy is an online school that connects students with peers, mentors and opportunities to grow and learn.
These connections with other students are so important! Kids just don’t learn well in a vacuum, and they certainly don’t thrive without real, authentic connections to help them along the way.
This is #MyUnVirtualSchool
Relationships matter as much as academics
Think about your favorite class in school.
There’s an exceptionally good chance that it was your favorite because your teacher took the time to make a real connection with you and your interests.
At Provost, they get that.
One-to-one relationships with students are crucial to academic success. At Provost, teachers, administrators and advisors all work to give students individual attention. This means that kids are engaged and interested in their education. Inspired learning happens here.
