How it works
Edmentum’s curriculum and teachers support online students. Full time teachers are available throughout the day for students. Learning can happen online with teachers, working in a shop, on a construction job site, at a museum, in a library, and in a national park. Participation in an online education program is not restricted to only online courses and that is the advantage of ICOA. Daily lessons are conducted, and the student must stay on pace to complete courses in a semester, but students can access their education 24/7 through the flexible online resources. This unique flexibility gives students the opportunity to work, hasten their pace in coursework, manage life’s difficult challenges, or play travel sports.
