Mesa Online Academy, developed to assist any student world-wide who needs an alternative or supplement to traditional education, now enrolls students wherever and whenever the need arises.
Using the Global Student Network's popular Virtual Curriculum, Mesa Online Academy offers individual or full year courses for students in grades 2-12. Based on a program established to connect non-traditional students with public school resources, the Mesa Online Academy offers individualized, online education to any student, in the U.S. or internationally.
Richard Hazen, Superintendent of Roy Municipal School District says that the Mesa Online Academy's faculty are all "Highly Qualified Teacher's" as required by the No Child Left Behind Act. Combining the talents and passion for education with Global Student Network's nationally aligned Virtual Curriculum was an obvious step to providing the alternative education needs of the 21st century. "Clearly there has been a mandate in America, and around the world to provide alternatives to brick and mortar schools." Currently, we are accepting students from anywhere in the world, mainly outside of New Mexico.
Mesa Online Academy is ideal for homeschool students, as well as students who have struggled, for whatever reasons, in traditional 'brick and mortar' school settings. It is an excellent way to provide a quality education to children whose parents prefer they stay at home.
Located in northern New Mexico, Mesa Online Academy is committed to providing quality, virtual education for students in grades 2-12 who are looking for a less traditional educational experience. "
GlobalStudentNetwork.com, a provider of virtual curriculum in 46 states and 11 countries, supplies the online courses. Each of the 80+ courses supports New Mexico State learning standards and is delivered entirely over the internet. "We did a nationwide search for the best Online Curriculum for Mesa Online Academy's students, and we are very fortunate to be working with the value, service and quality leader for online courses.
Students enrolled at Mesa Online Academy complete all of their coursework online while having the flexibility to customize their school year with 24/7 year-round access.
"We believe that every student's learning needs are different and we know that the Mesa Online Academy will be a positive addition to our ability to individualize curriculum to meet the needs of students," Hazen said.
Benefits for students and teachers involved in the Mesa Online Academy are also significant. Time is flexible and student can work from anywhere that has an Internet connection.
"The program will likely attract students that have, for whatever reason, felt disenfranchised from the school system," Hazen said. "We are excited to be able to meet the needs of students and their families."
