The iLEAD Online Difference

How are iLEAD Online courses different from other online programs?

Our Curriculum: All iLEAD Online courses are created, written, developed, and managed by our own facilitators. To ensure success, iLEAD Online emphasizes instructor availability, communication, and access. Our courses are flexible, project-based, and customizable to best fit the passions, interests, and needs of each learner. We do not purchase pre-made courses. Our high school courses are NCAA and UC/CSU A-G-approved courses. We do offer optional daily real-time class meetings as well as one-to-one and small-group tutoring. All learners have access to iLEAD activities and workshops, tutoring, science labs, and more!

Our Facilitators (Teachers): Our facilitators are project-based learning experts who tailor courses to your learner’s needs. They are happy to modify projects, assignments, and courses to best fit the learning plan needed to support each learner’s success. Our dedicated iLEAD facilitators work with your guides, advisors, and school sites to support learners with flexible learning plans to best meet the needs of the individual learner. We believe your learner will succeed when supported by a personalized learning team. By focusing 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 at iLEAD Online than in many online programs and will be required to go beyond the typical computer-based testing model.

Our Support: iLEAD Online learners have access to real-time tutors, access to meet with course facilitators as needed, and are assigned a one-to-one academic coach. Our academic coaches provide personal attention to support and advocate for you and to help you customize your learning plan. All iLEAD learners complete an onboarding orientation to master LMS navigation, netiquette, and digital citizenship training. These digital soft skills are essential in a quality online program.

Our Learners (Students): Technology has revolutionized flexibility and options in education. Flexibility of school schedules is essential to meet the needs of a digital economy. iLEAD promotes the philosophy of learners as leaders, servers, problem-solvers, creators, collaborators, and deep thinkers. iLEAD Online courses encourage all those qualities while providing the flexibility of online learning.

Accreditation (WASC): The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), is a world-renowned accrediting association. WASC is a voluntary dual-purpose process for schools to demonstrate that they provide high-quality learning and model continual self-improvement.

NCAA: iLEAD Online offers NCAA-approved courses. To be successful in college, students need to be prepared for college coursework. In Division I and Division II, the NCAA sets academic initial-eligibility standards that take into account GPA, standardized test scores, core courses taken in high school, and the grades earned in those core courses. Division III schools hold student-athletes to the same overall standards for the institution in which they’re enrolling. All student-athletes also must meet the unique acceptance requirements of the college or university they plan to attend (which may exceed NCAA standards).
