E- Education-Academic Classes

 

The Academic Classes will incorporate a state of the art classroom which would be Center based. Students will be taught in a group

setting or on an individual basis moving through the centers daily to ensure exposure to all desired academic areas. Students will use

computers to enhance their learning experience. Core academics would be taught; reading,writing, social studies and math. This

would progress on an individual or group level. Testing will be conducted on the student’s first day at the LIFE Center to

determine academic group placement or to determine if individual tutoring would be required. Academic groups consist

of four levels: Group 1, 2, 3 & 4 depending on skill level, Group 4 being the highest.
