Experience our affordable STEM curriculum for online independent study at home!
Dolphin STEM Academy’s homeschool curriculum is your affordable solution for personalized 3rd-12th grade online independent study. In the homeschool portal, you can access the curriculum suite which includes a flexible, intuitive, and engaging general education curriculum, Adobe Creative Cloud student edition, an online language program, NWEA MAP testing (optional), and access to STEM educational materials.
Customize your child’s learning according to learning needs–not age! Assign courses based on mastery level! Parents can choose to select individual courses at levels lower or higher than the child’s age-grade level. For example, if your child’s age-grade level is 5th grade, but your child has mastered 5th grade math already, you may choose the 6th grade math course and choose 5th grade for Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. Note: course levels can be changed twice within the first 30 days of purchase only.
The general education online curriculum includes built-in student support. Essential questions, learning objectives, and key vocabulary introduce the lesson to guide student learning. For auditory learners, a key support is the ability to highlight text and listen to it being read aloud instantly. For non-native English speakers, the text can be highlighted and translated into over 20 languages. A dictionary feature allows students to lookup a word without leaving the lesson page! Write and save notes on the lesson page, and highlight key facts to personalize your learning! Need help from a certified teacher? Access our paid tutoring services as needed!
Assessments are instantly graded by the system for immediate feedback. As a mastery-based program, students are allowed 3 opportunities to re-take most assessments to show their level of understanding. Parents and at-home learning coaches can log into the parent portal and access grades, work behavior such as time on task vs time logged in, and more.
NWEA MAP TESTING (optional)
Additional educational components add another layer of interest and challenged for homeschool students. For deeper understanding of student’s learning needs, the NWEA Map assessment is available (optional). A certified teacher will analyze the assessment results and prepare a report for the parent/guardian. The report will help you to determine what are the strengths and challenges of your homeschooler.
ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD AND FOREIGN LANGUAGES
In addition, students can choose from over 70 languages to learn with our online language program! Assessments are also built-in the language program to help you develop your conversational fluency. Don’t forget your student user access to the suite of Adobe Creative Cloud! Get creative with photoshop, character animator, illustrator, spark, and much more!
