Daily Class Structure

Students enrolled in Thales Academy Online will benefit from a full staff of dedicated online teachers, who will teach both live and pre-recorded lessons. Students will participate in lessons interactively, utilizing the engaging curriculum we use at both the K-5 and 6-8 levels. In grades K-5, we use Direct Instruction, in which teachers ask the class or individual students a question, and students respond. In grades 6-8, we utilize the Socratic Method of discussion, in which all students participate in a group class discussion to come to deeper understandings of the content being studied. In grades K-5, set times will be provided for one-on-one check-in assessments to ensure mastery and retention. Each school day will also include designated time for students to complete work on their own.

Daily Requirements

All students will be held to the same expectations as Thales Academy traditional campus students. Students will be expected to dress in accordance with the Thales dress code, attend class on time and according to the Thales year-round academic calendar, submit assignments on time, etc. Students who do not comply with Thales Academy Online’s expectations will not be permitted to continue with the program.

  • Device: A personal laptop, tablet, or desktop computer. Kindles and mobile phones are not adequate, due to limitations on those devices. Students must have exclusive access to their device (not shared with any other family members) during school hours and to complete any required homework.
