PHOENIX, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Insight Academy of Arizona (ISAZ), a tuition-free, online public school, announced today it is welcoming families with children in grades 7-12 to begin enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year. ISAZ's comprehensive education approach focuses on providing struggling students with the academic, social and emotional support needed to reach graduation.
"The team at ISAZ is dedicated to providing every student that walks through our doors the tools they need to succeed," said Kelly Van Sande, Head of School at ISAZ. "We have a passionate team that invests in the unique needs of each student. We understand that many factors can cause students to struggle and we excel in developing individualized learning that works for each and every child."
Beginning with academics, ISAZ combines engaging web-based lessons, live online learning sessions and support from state-certified teachers and counselors to create a unique educational experience for each student. Students complete benchmark assessments at the beginning of the school year to identify strengths and challenges and the results are used to develop realistic learning objectives and a comprehensive, customized plan to reach goals. For high school students, this Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) expands beyond academic objectives to include post-secondary goals for college or a career.
The online curriculum is bolstered by a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program, as well as a Family Support Team to help students achieve success both academically and personally. In 2015, ISAZ graduates headed to colleges such as Arizona State University, Grand Canyon University, Arizona Western College and Rio Salado College.
"During my time at ISAZ, I found the support I needed to do well in high school and go on to college this year," says Aden Polydoros, an ISAZ graduate. "I am thankful for the encouragement of my teachers that inspired me to pursue my passions and helped set me up for success."
Students who desire face-to-face interaction and those who are interested in working on small-group projects can take advantage of the blended learning centers located throughout the Phoenix-Metro area, Tucson and Kingman.
During the enrollment period ISAZ will be conducting online and in-person information sessions throughout the state. Interested families are encouraged to attend to meet teachers, staff and other families and to learn more about the award-winning online curriculum provided by K12.
