The Academic Coach has the exact same access that parents have, providing extra support for students and families as they get acquainted with the many tools and resources.
Students studying from home require their parent, or another responsible adult, to serve as the 'learning coach'. The learning coach works in conjunction with the teacher, helping facilitate progress through the daily lessons and working to modify the pace and schedule according to the child's needs. The learning coach assists the student to stay on schedule, monitors attendance, and communicates with the online teachers.
Although parents play the role of learning coach for their students in managing the schedule and ensuring the student is completing work at a reasonable pace, teachers remain constantly involved to monitor progress, ensure mastery, and develop specific intervention plans.
Hill Castle provides a fully digital, rich curriculum for students that features interactive software, live class sessions, and collaborative environments while giving teachers flexibility and control to maximize each student's full potential. Many children do not receive the individually focused and flexible learning they need in a traditional classroom setting. Parents and educators who choose Hill Castle IS understand the great potential of an individualized education.
