Private School

My Dynamic Academy delivers rigorous, effective, and personalized education to students based on their academic level and skill level. This personalized education not only provides content in the core, academic areas, but also provides reteaching and enrichment by using authentic, and highly engaging interesting, activities, projects. MDA’s mission is to teach the student using a holistic model so that not only do they master academic content, but more importantly, acquire life skills to ensure a successful adulthood. 

Thus, we still ensure that our lessons are still reflective of a "typical" school day so that your student does not get out of the habit of getting off task, just because it's online learning. Our expectations of our staff and students still remains despite the pandemic.

Each direct instruction begins at 8:50 and goes until 2:10, but allows time for your student to work independently for the last class of the day on the Accredited Curriculum platform. This allows for teachers to really delve in and challenge your students while we have time to have "face-to-face" time.

Below, you can find details about what you can expect your student to be doing on a daily basis, what you can expect the teachers to deliver, and how we've incorporated your needs as a parent in our daily routine by offering teacher-parent online support if needed.

MDA Lesson Details and School Schedule

Here is an outline of how we do scheduling and ensure students are getting direct, academic instruction in the core-content areas.

  • ELA, Science, Math, and Social Studies teachers rotate through each grade level 
  • The 90-minute lessons are direct instruction with a highly-qualified, certified teachers. Again, MDA is a fully, online school that uses Accredited Curriculum as  the base for direct instruction.
  • There will be no more than 25 students in the online class because we believe in small class sizes.
  • At MDA, our mission believes in cross-level learning, and so some lessons will have the 9th-10th grade students OR 11th-12th grade students, respectively,  grouped together to enrich the students’ collaborative learning experience (see Thursday Schedule)
  • Independent work time and homework time is built into the school day and on Fridays
  • Each class for the 9-12 students is 90 minutes, and each class period incorporates the following:
    • Enrichment lessons aligned with Accredited Curriculum (small group & whole group)
    • Reteach lessons aligned with Accredited Curriculum (small group & whole group)
    • Small group activities based on skill level that are high-interest, engaging, and rigorous 
    • Whole group activities that are high-interest, engaging, and rigorous 
    • Administration of formal and informal assessments of skills for submission on GradeBook
    • Authentic, “hands-on”, life skill lesson (learning how to apply for a loan, for example

Thursdays are collaborative, Cross-Level Learning days. At MDA, our mission believes in cross-level learning, and so some lessons will have the 9th-10th grade students OR 11th-12th grade, respectively,  grouped together to enrich the students’ collaborative learning experience (see Thursday Schedule below).

Fridays are Early Release days, and classes are only 55 minutes long (see schedule below). The lessons’ primary goal will be to work on weekly individual and group projects.
