PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insight Academy of Arizona (ISAZ), an accredited online public school, will begin the 2018-19 school year on August 7. ISAZ provides students in grades 7-12 throughout the state with the opportunity to get back on track academically in the distraction-free environment of their own home.
Combining innovative technology with an engaging curriculum led by state-certified teachers, ISAZ provides each student with a personalized learning experience.
ISAZ will introduce the Destinations Career Program in 2018-19 to give high school students exposure to relevant technical and specialty trade skills, allowing them to explore potential future occupations in in-demand career fields. ISAZ will offer career technical education (CTE) courses in three pathways: Business Management and Administration, Finance, and Health Science.
Students in the Destinations Career Program prepare to earn technical credentials and have the opportunity to gain workplace skills while still in high school. Students learn career readiness skills such as interview preparation and resume writing to prepare them for success in the workplace and in college.
“Technology is constantly changing the workplace, and schools must evolve if they are going to prepare students to succeed in the world today,” said Dr. Kelly Van Sande, head of school at Insight Academy of Arizona. “We look forward to providing our students with career training that will equip them with job-ready skills they can put to immediate use after high school.”
“Great jobs are left open in Arizona and across the United States because our people don’t have the skills needed to fill them,” said Arizona State Senator Warren Petersen. “I am excited that the Destinations Career Program at Insight Academy of Arizona will provide a quality education to Arizona students and equip them with the necessary skills to succeed in the workforce.”
ISAZ offers families and students an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Students attending ISAZ come from diverse backgrounds, many of them struggling in a traditional classroom before finding ISAZ.
The school’s comprehensive education approach focuses on providing struggling students with the academic, social and emotional support needed to succeed in school and beyond. Using a combination of web-based lessons, live online learning sessions and support from dedicated teachers and counselors, ISAZ creates a unique education experience for each student that helps to ensure their success after high school.
In addition, special programs like the Social and Emotional Learning Program and the family support team help students succeed both academically and personally.
The online learning environment allows students to work at their own pace, giving them time to progress faster in subjects at which they excel, while spending more time on subjects and lessons where they need help. ISAZ’s state-certified teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes. In addition, the dedicated teachers interact with students and parents via phone, email, web-based classrooms and online discussions, building close partnerships with parents and students to support academic success and ensure families feel supported.
ISAZ also offers unique blended learning programs, combining online courses with in-person instruction and support. There are three blended learning centers located in the Phoenix Metro area, as well as one each in Kingman and Tucson. Each center features on-site instruction, student enrichment and socialization opportunities.
ISAZ is still accepting enrollments for this fall. Interested families are encouraged to attend online or in-person information sessions hosted by the school. To learn more, visit http://az.insightschools.net or download the K12 enrollment app for iOS and Android devices.
