The key to teaching young minds in a virtual context is meaningful teacher-student interaction. Studia Nova students experience a highly personalized learning program so that each individual can reach their own true academic potential.
Our blended approach to learning combines intensive and challenging online homework with small group and one-on-one virtual learning. Our teachers are fully dedicated to advancing each student to their maximum potential and are empowered to get students the help they need. Our technologies drive communication throughout our learning community with easy to use chat, virtual conferencing and online document collaboration.
What makes us different?
Our virtual teachers teach!
We use our student diagnostics to test ourselves, not to label our students. When we develop and deploy a new class, we test a student’s ability both before and after the class, and constantly assess our own effectiveness. Our entire organization is structured to learn, to constantly improve in our singular objective – getting kids to learn.
We grade ourselves
Many virtual schools disappoint because they focus too much on the technology and nowhere near enough on the people. Virtual education has mainly become an experiment with computer adaptive learning, where teachers act more like managers than educators. Studia Nova is the only online virtual school that provides micro virtual classes with small numbers of students that drive teacher-student dialog. We provide an exceptional level of teacher-student interaction including on-demand chat help from any available teacher. Our teachers proactively reach out to students and parents when the work is not getting done.
