The iSierra Online Academy offers a multifaceted high school experience.
♦ Flexible Scheduling: Students can take a majority of their courses online, creating a schedule that will allow them to pursue personal or professional interests.
♦ Individualized Learning: Students are able to move at their own pace* to achieve mastery.
♦ Multiple Course Pathways: Allows teachers to differentiate instruction and spend more time working with students one-on-one to address critical challenges.
♦ Unique Master Scheduling: While taking online courses, students will be able to participate in on-campus arts, science labs, sports, clubs, and other extra-curricular programs on the BPHS or SOHS campuses.**
iSierra welcomes students who:
♦ Prefer more flexibility in their daytime schedule.
♦ Need expanded options to address scheduling conflicts due to involvement in sports, advanced courses, or academy involvement.
♦ Wish to accelerate their learning to enter college sooner or pursue professional sports or careers.
♦ Prefer a home school environment.
♦ Would like to start the transition from a home school environment to a comprehensive campus.
We offer a number of programs to meet a variety of student needs.
