ACADEMIC PLANNING

MUSE Virtual is dedicated to ensuring that each student learns in a unique way. We believe in a student-centered approach that acknowledges each student’s unique talents, interests, and environmental preferences within their learning journey. An individualized learning plan begins during the admissions process where the MUSE Virtual Director and teachers meet with the family and student to assess academic successes and challenges.

Once admitted, MUSE Virtual teachers then use a learning profile that measures a student’s approach to learning and identifies opportunities for growth. Identifying a student’s learning style is even more important in an online learning environment. This helps to inform the choice of curriculum, mode of curriculum delivery and provides valuable information to our teachers and staff regarding instructional preferences. Understanding individual learning styles allows us to take a holistic approach, based on each child’s unique pace of development and strengths.

Based on the belief that each style of learning is valid, unique, and important, our learning style model includes auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learners but expands to consider how children think, what motivates them to learn, their interests, talents, and even the environment in which they learn best.
