GRADUATION COURSE COMPLETION REQUIREMENTS

At the 24/7 Learning Academy, we have no grade levels nor labels.  We don't group learners by age and date limits; we group them by project groups. Learners get to show their genius through their effort, the skills they master, and what they accomplish. Each project offers learners a fresh start and opportunities to master new skills, show proficiency in the core subjects below, work with new project groups and educators, and develop their learning portfolios.
