ENGAGING AND ENCOURAGING

At WAY American School Online, we believe students should get the best of online education. Learning should be engaging and encouraging to students. It should encourage self-esteem, independence, and develop 21st-century skills. Our approach is built on two core components.

Project-Based
Learning

Students explore authentic, engaging, and real-world problems.

Competency-Based
Learning

Students progress by mastering learning standards in their courses.

UNDERSTAND PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

With Project-Based Learning, students work on a project over an extended period of time – from a week up to a semester – that engages them in solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience.

As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic, meaningful project. Project-Based Learning prepares students for academic, personal, and career success, and prepares young people to rise to the challenges of the 21st century.
