Online Academy Overview
Southeast Academy uses an award-winning internet-based structure with over 50,000 multimedia features including videos and digital tutors. The curriculum presents a Christian worldview. SEA’s structure prepares students for today’s college course procedures. Students can complete their schoolwork from anywhere using typical broadband internet access. Electronic scoring instantly corrects work while the questions are fresh and before wrong answers are in memory too long. Grades and progress are viewable online by both the student and parents.
SEA’s Teacher on Call feature can reduce parent involvement to the level that works best for the family. The student can use a built-in message system for concept help and questions. SEA teachers also handle occasional subjective scoring where answers cannot be electronically scored. All students above 5th grade have the Teacher On Call feature to some level. It is optional for 3rd-5th grades. SEA’s booklet curriculum structure for lower grades dovetails into the online structure to make a transition to online very easy.
Although there are some progress guidelines, students are guided through the lessons at their own pace, giving them the chance to master concepts at their ability before moving on to more challenging lessons. This allows students more time when needed, but also allows them to move quickly when they have mastered a concept.
SEA’s online academy will work on both PC and Mac browsers using broadband. Some tablets will work. Check with us.
Kindergarten through 2nd grade use easy to use booklets that dovetail into the online curriculum. Curriculum samples for Kindergarten or 1st – 2nd grades can be found at the bottom of By Grade pages.
New students and at least one parent will go through a brief orientation, so students can get an easy start with Southeast Academy’s online program. Students will be issued a login to enter our online academy. There are several built-in lesson plan features to keep students on track. From the Assignments page, the student can easily see lessons (L) and projects (P) that need to be finished or done next. There are approximately 130 lessons per two-semester subject. This screenshot example shows the top of the Assignments page. Typically, 3rd-7th will have five subjects and 8th and above have six subjects. The student just clicks an arrow next to the lesson or project to begin or resume.
When a student clicks a lesson (L) assignment, it will take the student to the first reading page or section of the lesson. The lesson pages have various multimedia features, including text to speech. Many lesson pages have a “Tiny Tutor” that can be clicked to hear an alternative presentation of the content if needed. At the top of the lesson page, the student can toggle between the current lesson section and required questions to be answered. In this screenshot example, Section 1 of 2 has 9 questions. Section 2 of 2 will have additional questions. Lessons will vary on the number of sections. The student also has a menu on the right side for additional features such as printing the lesson, reference tools, student notetaking, and activating text to speech. The student can highlight a word or phrase, then click the Reference button to see additional reference materials for the highlighted text.
Many lessons have an embedded video. The student can view a transcript of the video if needed. Also, the Vocab Arcade in the screenshot below allows the student to play a game to reinforce vocabulary dealing with the lesson. The student can click Courses at the top of most screens to go to a particular subject to see all previous lessons, projects, and questions for a course subject, usually for review before a quiz or test.
