Q – AT WHAT PACE WILL MY SON’S EDUCATION BE ADMINISTERED? HE IS BEHIND AND NEEDS TO MAKE UP CLASSES OR CREDITS. HE IS AHEAD AND DESIRES TO STAY AHEAD.

A – Learning pace: The education for each student is highly personalized; the pace of the curriculum will be based on his abilities and on his personal learning plan, IEP,  or 504 plan.  Many students graduate high school while attending Lakeside Academy.  When that occurs, they may begin to take college classes online.
