Banyan Tree Compass Academy is a unique, private school that provides support and individual accommodations for success. We offer an accredited blended curriculum for students who need flexibility, advanced placement, or special education, filling the gaps in academics, and getting to the root of learning problems. A combination of online learning, teacher-led instruction, and individual or small group classes provides individual choices. With over 250 courses for students in 1st through 12th grade, including AP and special education, we find the combination that is right for your child.
Each student has different learning needs. Some of our students experience anxiety, social skills problems, learning problems, or medical needs. Others need flexibility due to sports or career demands that make attending a traditional school impossible. Families who travel or move frequently can benefit from consistency in learning with this program.
You may have considered homeschooling or other alternatives because your child does not thrive in a traditional learning environment, but the thought of doing it your self is overwhelming. Compass Academy is here for you. With several options to meet family and student needs, we can develop a plan to accommodate minimum or maximum support and distance learning with our virtual learning platform.
Banyan Tree Compass Academy provides students with many options for learning:
1. Full School Curriculum
Compass Academy students receive K-12 curriculum that is customized just for them. Students may attend our center, work online at home, or a combination of both.We provide credentialed teacher support, to ensure that the student finds success with grade-level curriculum which can be customized to accommodate for learning differences. Students attend our learning center for full day support in small groups or one-on-one. Students may start at any time during the school year, and pay a fixed monthly tuition.
2. Full School Curriculum + Specialized services = Success
Compass Academy Learning Centers offer a “whole child” approach to learning problems including dyslexia, auditory processing, ADHD and Executive Functioning. We find the root of the learning problem and work to correct it. Building relationships with students and families, we become part of the team that supports student success.
Because the curriculum is individualized, there is time in a student’s day to address learning needs with specific intervention, eliminating the need for additional tutoring after school. Curriculum plus specific intervention can be integrated throughout the school day, freeing students to enjoy afterschool activities or sports without the need for additional tutoring or educational therapy.
3. Credit Recovery
Our virtual platform offers a complete menu of high school courses. Placement tests are administered for each course so a student may complete the portion of a course that was missing or needs to be retaught. AP or a-g approved courses can be selected and are fully accredited.
