Andover eCademy Middle School Program
Our Middle School team is passionate about providing a rich and interactive curriculum for our students. We strive to create meaningful opportunities for student learning not only in our online courses but through face-to-face interactions as well.
We use an online program called Pearson Connexus (PCX), which includes all of the materials your student will need. Though most assignments can be completed online, occasionally you may need traditional school and art supplies, most of which are probably already in your house! You are welcome to use a home computer, or you can check out a school computer for a small fee. Materials for supplemental activities during in-house days will be provided by eCademy.
Blended Learning Opportunities
We offer various blended learning opportunities to fit the needs of your student and your family schedule.
In-House Days: In-house days are structured similar to a typical school day, and teachers lead lessons in each of the core subject areas. Students can come to our school from 9:00-2:00 and can expect to participate in core subject lessons, science labs, and PE. Students (and teachers!) love in-house days as they are a great way to develop peer relationships while also receiving additional teaching and support in their classes.
Field Trips: We take 4-6 field trips per year. This is a great opportunity for students to meet new friends and explore the greater Wichita museums and attractions! In the past, we have gone to Exploration Place, Sedgwick County Zoo, the Aviation Museum, The Museum of World Treasures, and more!
All lessons are self-guided through PCX. Teachers set a pacing guide (due dates) for all of the lessons and assignments. Teachers add additional projects, videos, and alternative assessments to enrich the curriculum. All written work, projects, and assignments are teacher graded. Parents and learning coaches are responsible for checking in with students daily on their progress, setting goals, and offering academic support from home. Teachers are always available to work with a student on difficult concepts, provide additional support to students and parents, and answer any questions regarding the curriculum.
