What We Do!
Why this is important
Most Online Private K- 8 Schools are not accredited through the State or an accreditation authority. Private Schools are not legally required to use certified teachers and are not legally required to take part in the State Assessments. Finally, colleges focus on transcripts for grades 9-12 when accepting applications. Thus the extra expense of offering an accredited K-8 school is not legally necessary.
What this means to Parents paying tuition for their children to attend Online Private Schools.
What The Earl Willard Academy Offers:
Our students have a content rich learning experience based on our structured curriculum that aligns with State Standards / Assessments and the requirements of WASC, COGIA, and MSA-CESS accredited High Schools. Our classes are live online sessions with a credentialed teacher.
The teacher (me!) is an Arizona credentialed and Highly Qualified teacher for grades 5-12 in content areas: English and Social Studies. I have taught 6th-12th grades for 12 years. My academic background is as follows:
Master’s Political Science/Comparative Governments
Master’s US Military History – will complete 5/2022
Bachelors of Science Political Science/History
English – 51 credits (it takes 24 credits to acquire a Bachelor’s – I know! Put it down to my wild 20’s )
Because the law does not require Private Schools to provide credentialed teachers, I teach 2nd – 12th grades all subjects. Please note The Earl Willard Academy is not accredited.
These are the accredited Online High Schools The Earl Willard Academy recommends:
If your child wants to learn, is respectful, and understands that homework is to be done, I would love to welcome him/her. I have students across the United States and in all time zones. I keep my roster at 3 students per session.
** Please note, we start each session with an internal reflection moment. This moment is given for individual prayer. There is more to life than bread alone.
Best of luck to everyone!
