ICL Academy’s curriculum empowers students to think critically and apply their knowledge in authentic ways through Impact Learning. By drawing on real-life examples, students are challenged to investigate historical connections, explore today’s physical and social environment, and solve the global problems of the future.
All students engage in an inquiry-based curriculum that promotes curiosity, nurtures creativity, and emphasizes innovation. Students learn with others who are motivated and work with highly talented instructors in an atmosphere of collegial engagement.
ENGAGEMENT, APPLICATION, MASTERY
Based on decades of expertise in virtual learning, the ICL experience is unique and relevant. We engage students academically by tailoring their education to their passions.
COLLEGE STYLE WEEKLY SEMINARS
ICL teachers know each student's passion. During weekly seminars, teachers check in with their students; physically, mentally and emotionally. They work closely with students to accommodate competitions and commitments. All students know that ICL teachers are 'on their team'.
INDIVIDUALIZED STUDENT GOALS
With personal attention comes accountability. Each student begins the semester by writing their own personal mission statement. Student stay on track with our “Rule of 2” policy that creates consistent teacher oversight and support throughout each semester.
LEARNING FOR UNDERSTANDING,
PROFICIENCY AND MASTERY
Our students learn to apply skills and lessons by demonstrating mastery and proficiency within real-life and relevant scenarios.
ICL incorporates the "Learn, do" model. No busy work.
At ICL, we don't think of virtual learning as a convenience for busy students and families. It goes far beyond flexibility.
We recognize that the digital/global work environment is here to stay. We believe that virtual school, infused with technological best practices and principles, is the ideal way for students to grow and thrive in our rapidly changing world.
Technology allows for adaptive learning platforms and personalized learning paths, catering to individual students' strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. This helps students progress at their own pace, boosting their confidence and motivation.
At ICL, we blend the best of traditional live teaching, student debate, and synchronous academic exploration.
By embracing traditional teaching methods alongside contemporary approaches, we can provide a well-rounded educational experience, ensuring that ICL students are exposed to time-tested practices.
Structure, consistency, and continuity provide a healthy balance for students and families who have chosen a virtual learning environment.
