iQ Academy Minnesota Now Accepting Enrollment for 2017-18 School Year

FERGUS FALLS, Minn.--()--iQ Academy Minnesota, an accredited, full and part-time online public school, welcomes families with students in kindergarten through 12th grade to enroll for the 2017-18 academic year. Open to all students who reside in Minnesota, iQ Academy offers an innovative use of technology, a rigorous curriculum, and an individualized approach to learning (including accommodations for different learning styles) to ensure every student receives an exceptional learning experience.

For grades K-5, iQ Academy Minnesota offers a rich mixture of online and offline lessons, including interactive animations and materials for hands-on activities. Lessons are followed by assessments, so parents can be sure that the student has mastered a particular area before moving on. The curriculum for grades 6-12 engages students with dynamic lessons in all core subjects, including Advanced Placement® levels and a wide range of career-oriented electives. Additionally, the school places a special emphasis on providing students with opportunities to further their STEAM education including a weekly extracurricular session where students have learned about digital music production and how to write HTML and JavaScript code in the past year.

“With the ability to nurture different learning styles and the support of our amazing teachers, iQ Academy is an option for families seeking an alternative to the traditional brick and mortar school model,” said Theresa Gallagher, school operations manager at iQ Academy Minnesota. “We also work hard to provide opportunities that complement the curricular interests of our students and give families the chance to participate in numerous field trips and outings throughout the year, fostering a vibrant school community.”

iQ Academy is unique from other online programs in its use of the Flipped Classroom Model. Students first work independently through a topic of study in their online lessons, and then attend online “class connect” sessions hosted by the teacher, who facilitates deeper exploration of the topic through student discussion. As opposed to a traditional lecture, this approach maximizes the group’s time and allows for further study through additional learning activities, during which the teacher can assist the students individually.

State-certified teachers provide instruction, guidance and support, interacting with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. As a public school option, there is no tuition.

iQ Academy is now accepting enrollments for the 2017-2018 school year. Parents are encouraged to attend one of the online information sessions hosted by the school each month. More information on iQ Academy and upcoming events can be found at http://mn.iqacademy.com/.
