Progression Plan

future-oriented

multiple pathways

We value a student’s freedom to customize their learning and know that not all students want the same level of achievement. Knowing this, students can choose one of two different middle school paths, and one of three different high school diploma paths. Whatever level you’d like to achieve, we celebrate you and all of your accomplishments.  Below are just some EXAMPLES of what student progression can look like.  Students can customize their courses with Guidance approval so talk to our counselors today about what plan you have in mind.

Transfer Credits

Course selection is completed initially at the time of enrollment and will occur annually toward the end of a student’s enrolled year. Documentation of and success in prior coursework helps our Guidance Counselor/Enrollment Specialists determine the appropriate courses for students and will guide the development of a graduation plan. Acceptable documents include report cards and transcripts. All received documents are reviewed upon receipt and placed in the student’s file.  A Credit Transfer form is available upon request. If students have additional records to be considered or complete courses outside of Lingua Learning Academy, relevant documentation should be sent to [email protected] or faxed to 904-615-5285.

Career & College Readiness

student talking with counselor

Your future is our priority

Our Guidance Counselor will be hosting College and Career Readiness webinars that will help students explore their options for post-secondary education or preparation for the workforce. Students can explore interests, personal strengths, and skills and how these may predict a future college program or career. These webinars may include guest speakers from various careers, college recruiters, virtual campus tours, and more. Setting goals and planning for future success is an important part of school culture.

Juniors and Seniors will be enrolled in a College Readiness course as one of their electives to ensure a strong understanding of post-secondary options.

 Additionally, we offer 1:1 sessions during grades 11-12 to prepare the student to successfully achieve their post-secondary goals.

NCAA Eligibility

For NCAA athletic eligibility, students should use the APEX Learning curriculum. This is an important factor for any student athlete interested in eligibility for division 1 or division 2 college athletics.

Career Readiness

All of our high school students are required to take a Career Readiness course in order to meet graduation requirements. We want to make sure they are prepared for the workforce.

Questions And Answers

LLA teachers are available by phone, text or email. There is also a messaging feature within each curriculum.  Teachers are there to help answer questions and offer support, but they do not teach each lesson or provide tutoring services. Teachers respond within 24 hours and grade assignments within 72 hours (not including weekends/holidays).

Lingua Learning Academy teachers can issue a progress update upon written requests, however, each curriculum has a gradebook feature that parents and students can access with the percent complete in the course and the current grade.  They can also access their individualized feedback via the gradebook.

Teachers at Lingua Learning Academy hold degrees in their field of teaching, most actually hold advanced degrees.  These teachers also have many years of experience with virtual or classroom environments. They are qualified under the state of Florida’s private school requirements.

Yes, parents who would like to enroll their student(s) into our school but have financial strains can apply for scholarship under our Scholarship page. 

Yes, students who want to enroll on a part-time basis and take 1-3 courses may do so. Part-time students are to receive pre-approval from their school of record in order to verify that they will accept credits from Lingua Learning Academy. Once a student completes one of our online courses, a student may order an official transcript to document the high school credits earned. They then take the transcript to their full-time school for documentation.

Participating in a full-time virtual online program takes a commitment from not only the student but the entire family. Although students will be working on their own devices, anywhere in the world, with teacher support, parents are there to encourage, support, and motivate their students. Some students are very self-driven, and others need more push from parents. Talk to your student about setting up a schedule and ensuring their success.

Although students will be working on their own devices, anywhere in the world, there is still a significant time commitment spent learning the material and completing the assigned tasks. Based on the grade level and the number of courses each student is taking, the time dedicated to learning is similar to that of a traditional school. If you are in high school, taking a full load to meet graduation requirements, you are looking at spending 5 hours a day on your courses. However, the fun part is that you have the flexibility on HOW and WHEN you dedicate that time in your schedule. If you are a night owl and want to “burn the midnight oil”, you can do that! If you have an hour or two in between soccer practice and games, you can do your school then. It is completely up to the student and families as to how they organize the time needed to complete the assigned coursework.

-Make a weekly class schedule

-Take the total number of assignments and divide them by the number of days you can dedicate to completing the course. This will tell you how many assignments need to be completed weekly.

-Schedule breaks and extracurriculars

-Stick to your “game plan”

-Communicate with your teachers. Ask for help.
