Homeschool Curriculum Benefits

Our curriculum comes with a built-in translation tool! You can translate words and sentences in the curriculum to over 20 languages including Mandarin, Korean, Spanish, Arabic, and more! Bahasa Malay and Cantonese coming soon!

We've created a STEM Learning Portal to provide you access to additional apps, libraries, activities, and services to enhance learning. Basic and Premium editions of the portal are available dependent on purchase. STEM Learning Portal is coming soon!

The online homeschool curriculum is available 24/7. Assignments are automatically scheduled according to your homeschool year start and end dates. Rescheduling is available too!

Choose from over 100 online homeschool courses! Academic core subjects include Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and History. Electives are vast and include languages, STEM, career and technical education, economics, PE, health, agriculture and food safety, and more!

Easy customization - with the touch of a button, you can skip a lesson, quiz, test, or assessment question! Feel free to skip an entire unit if it doesn't match your homeschooling needs!

Individualized learning - You know your child's academic ability best, and now you have the freedom and ability to assign separate grade levels for each academic core courses based on ability instead of age! Assign the grade level for Math, Reading/Language Arts, Science, History/Social Studies based on your child's academic ability.

Grading weights are set by the parent/home learning coach. You determine the weight for lessons, projects, quizzes, and tests out of 100 as you determine best fits your child's learning style. You also determine the pass threshold for lessons and assessments--set it at your discretion! The number of attempts your child has for lessons and assessments are up to you--do you want to allow 1, 2, or 3 attempts? Most questions are automatically graded by the online system, but you can adjust the grading to reflect your child's mastery of the lesson or assessment! Our friendly and knowledgable curriculum specialists can help advise you during your online orientation to the program.

The online homeschool curriculum system automatically grades most lessons and assessments. Questions that require a written response are graded by the parent/home learning coach, and an answer key is provided in the system. Students who purchase the teacher-supported package will have grading and tutoring from a teacher.

Challenging and insightful courses await you! The course content is very extensive in each subject area, and provides a vast wealth of information along with assessments to check understanding. The course content reads like a textbook and also includes videos and multimedia presentations to enhance learning.

Our online homeschool curriculum is designed with standards-aligned lessons using the Understanding by Design framework. Learning outcomes are defined by standards-aligned learning objectives, and the lessons are presented in small learning units with clearly defined objectives. Student knowledge and progress is measured using formative and summative assessments; students receive immediate feedback on their assessments and are motivated to continue down the learning path.

All assignments, grades, and dates are clearly found in the dashboard and can be printed for your homeschool portfolio or state/district reporting requirements.

PERSONALIZATION

Dolphin STEM Academy’s homeschool curriculum is your affordable solution for personalized 3rd-12th grade online independent study.

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.

 

STUDENT SUPPORT

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

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/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.
