SIMI VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Students logged onto the first day of school at iQ Academy California – Los Angeles (iQLA) on August 26. A full-time online public charter school authorized by the Rowland Unified School District, iQLA provides a tuition-free public education option for students in kindergarten through 12th grade who reside in Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.
Combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum, iQLA provides each student with a personalized learning experience. Students in all grade levels take a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, history and English/language arts, as well as world languages, music and art. Electives are available to high school students, offering exposure to academic and career-focused content as they work towards their high school diploma.
"With every new school year, our goal is to empower students to become independent, self-motivated learners,” said iQLA teacher D. Joseph McGannon. “Our online platform gives students a choice to attend public school at home, where they can develop a love of learning right in their own communities.”
Students enroll in online school for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to balance academic goals with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. For many students, iQLA offers an education they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access.
iQLA’s California-credentialed teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment anywhere with an internet connection. In addition to scheduled classes, teachers offer one-on-one instruction and support, online chat sessions, and family phone calls to build close partnerships in support of academic success.
Throughout the year, iQLA fosters a sense of community through in-person field trips and social outings and celebrates graduating seniors with a commencement ceremony in the spring. Virtual clubs and organizations also allow students to further explore shared interests together in an online setting.
