How do I know which program is the best one for my student?
Updated: Oct 11, 2019
First, start with a free 10-day sample.
Have your student complete the assessment and try the lessons. We will call you to discuss their results, answer all of your questions about our programs, and help you make an informed decision.
FAPrep is our traditional online option for K-12 learners with two curriculum options based on their academic level.
Pre-College Prep is for any K-8th grade student or any student working below the 6th-grade level. College Prep is for high school students who assess at or above the 6th-grade level and are ready for the high school workload.
FAPrep parents have the ability to build their program with add-on options such as TMS (Teacher Monitored Support) and FAPrep+
The FAPrep+gives the student access to our classroom management system,Showbie, classroom discussion, practice centers and projects. You will also have the option to opt-in or opt-out of staff intervention so we can help keep an eye on your student's progress and recommend help if they struggle. The projects on FAPrep+ become a parent guided extracurricular activity instead of part of the curriculum. FAPrep+ is a great option for students younger than 11 years old, students who are not sure if they will thrive with project-based learning and wish to try a project first, or for those who want FA3D but are waiting for a spot in the program due to FA3D being wait-listed.
TMS is an add-on option that gives your student a homeroom teacher who will give the student a weekly schedule, monitors the student's progress, and offer intervention material if they struggle. TMS can be added or removed at any time as long as the program isn't full and closed for new enrollments temporarily. You can add TMS after you enroll inside of the Resource Hub (note, there is currently a waiting list for TMS). TMS is an additional monthly charge of $22.99 for the Basic Package or $32.99 for the Deluxe Package per student per month.
FA3D is our Student-Flex™ program that blends online Math, Reading, and Language Arts with project-based learning for all other subjects and electives. Students must be at least 11 years old to enroll in FA3D. FA3D is a unique program that takes a non-traditional approach to college and beyond.
Students in FA3D should be self-motivated learners who do not shy away from a challenge and enjoy investigative style learning with little parental oversight. FA3D parents will not manage their student's curriculum or schedule but can request reports and monitor all conversations, projects, and schedule interactions between students, peers, and ASMs. The FA3D student's ASM will provide the student with a weekly schedule, monitor their progress, offer intervention, and oversee and give guidance on projects.
Please note, currently, there is a waiting list for FA3D but if you wish to enroll now you can enroll your student into FAPrep+. You can then add your student to the waiting list for FA3D and when a spot opens you will be notified via email. This makes a seamless transition since FAPrep+ is the same curriculum as FA3D, minus the scheduling and structure of FA3D.
