FAQ’s & Enrollment Questions

What is your school calendar?

Although iLEAD Online does follow the school calendar (August-June) we do enroll learners throughout the school year.  You may choose to work on pace with the school calendar, or on a modified learning plan designed with the help of your learning guide or facilitator. Many learners choose to accelerate their courses, and some focus on one course at a time.

We do offer both A and B sections year round (you may take Semester A of a course in Spring for example)

Before you will be added to any course, all learners must complete a one time orientation to master LMS navigation,  netiquette and digital citizenship training. These digital soft skills are essential in a quality online program.

Our facilitators are Project Based Learning experts and place emphasis on tailoring courses to your learner’s needs.  They are happy to modify projects, assignments and courses to best fit the learning plan needed to support success.

Because we focus on project based learning as opposed to computer based testing we ensure deeper, more authentic learning.  Your learner will be held to a higher accountability measure than many online programs and be required to go beyond the typical computer based testing model.
