What does self-paced mean in the classroom? How will my child be pushed to do their best?

The online curriculum we offer is self-paced, which means students move at their own pace instead of keeping up with an entire classes of different students. Students need to demonstrate a certain level of mastery and understanding in order to move on to the next assignment, which prevents them from getting lost or moving ahead before they are ready. Each student has academic goals tied into their level movement within the program. This encourages students to put forth sufficient effort in the classroom. They also have an Academic Advisor who helps them develop healthy goals in the classroom.
