Q:

What is "Looping"?

A:

It is the first day of class. Bella logs into class. She knows my expectations, knows me. She knows many of her peers. She is comfortable—no first-day stress locking down her brain. I know Bella: her strengths, her struggles, her tendencies, her interest/passions. She is on the path to be a seasoned independent learner. We say our hellos, check in on friends, and the learning process begins immediately. How is this possible?

Looping (education): The practice of moving groups of children up from one grade to the next with the same teacher. This allows the teacher to provide the best customized learning experiences for each learner. Have they mastered a skill? The teacher knows and can offer the next concept offering great opportunies for advancement. Do they need more time on a certain subject? The teacher knows and can gear learning towards the level the student is on. Would they like a pokemon themed lesson? The teacher knows what activites and interest will allow for excited and eagerness to participate in learning. Looping works and is one of the reasons Arrows Learning Academy is so Unique!

Q:

My learner is very social, will they have time to build relationships with other learners?

A:

ONE THING WE LOVE ABOUT WHAT ARROWS LEARNING ACADMEY OFFERS IS THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT CAN BE BUILT THROUGH OUR APPROACH. THOUGH CLASS TIME IS FOR LEARNING, THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENT TO INTERACT WITH THEIR PEERS EVERY CLASS. IN ADDITION, STUDENTS THAT ARE ENROLLED IN A CURRENT CLASS MAY LOG ON DURING "GROUP HOURS" TO JUST BE LIVE AND TALK WITH THEIR FRIENDS.  DURING GROUP HOURS STUDENTS WILL NOT HAVE THE UNDIVIDED ATTENTION OF STAFF MEMBERS. STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO SHOW THE SAME RESPECT AND RESPONSIBLITY THAT THEY DO IN CLASS DURING GROUP HOURS. WE SUGGEST STUDENT OR GUARDIANS COORDINATE WITH OTHER LEARNERS WHEN THEY WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THEM FOR A GROUP TIME. LEARNERS MAY LEAVE AND JOIN AT ANY TIME DURING GROUP TIMES. LEARNERS WLL BE DIVIDED BY AGE GROUPS FOR GROUP HOURS. FAMILIES ARE ALSO ENCOURAGED TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS OUTSIDE OF ARROWS LEARNING ACADEMY WITH OTHER LEARNS IF THEY WISH! 

 

GROUP HOURS ARE:

M 8:45AM- 9:00PM 

TU-TH 4:00PM-9:00PM

SAT  1:00PM-6:00PM 

Q:

What is the family commitment expected by  Arrows Learning Acadmey outside of class hours?

A:

FAMILIES MAY CHOOSE TO USE MATERIALS PROVIDED BY ARROWS LEARNING ACADEMY OR OTHER LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES TO FILL IN LEARNING EXPERIENCES ON DAYS WITH NO CLASS. THIS WILL HELP IN MAKING SURE THAT YOUR STUDENT RECIEVES THE MIN AMOUNT OF REQUIRED DAYS FOR SCHOOLING IN YOUR STATE. 
  • FAMILIES ARE CONSIDER HOMESCHOOLERS AND MUST BE SURE TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THEIR STATE LAWS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR LEARNERS. WE DO NOT REGISTER ANY STUDENTS AS HOMESCHOOLERS WITH THE STATE AS THIS IS A RESPONSIBILTY OF THE FAMILIY.

Q:

I have children that will be taking classes at different times in person. What can I do to help with the not having to drive back and forth? 
 

A:

Parents are not required to be present or teach a class. Enrolled children are allowed to stay without a parent and if waiting between their or an enrolled sibling’s classes to start. We don’t expect anyone to drive here repeatedly. Children will be in a free play and exploration during times that they don't have classes.

Most of our parents drop off and return after their children's final class. We have a few that like to sit in their cars and some that now go out shopping, to eat, ect  with one another while the kids are here! 

Of course parents are always welcome during classes and able to volunteer their time to help if they would like.
