Overview

Serving full- and part-time students in grades 7 through 12, the Kaplan Academy of Washington (KAWA) delivers a rigorous and relevant curriculum with the depth and breadth needed to meet state graduation requirements and prepare students for post-secondary success. Courses are aligned to Washington standards and are built to flexibly accommodate the varying needs of Washington students. These students come from diverse backgrounds and exhibit a remarkable range of academic needs and life circumstances: students who need access to AP and honors courses to upgrade their academic resume for college applications; students desiring courses not available in their home district; students who struggle to finish high school while satisfying the demands of the workplace, family care, or intensive training in the arts or athletics; students needing credit recovery or credit advancement – these are just a few of the populations we serve at KAWA. Our online program enables students to complete school work from home and still receive teacher guidance, sound pedagogy, rigorous content, and academic support.

KAWA provides engaging, interactive courses taught by responsive, highly-trained, state-certified teachers. We employ the right mix of independent computer time, instructor-led teaching and discussion, and academic coaching support. We engage a number of protocols to build a unique learner portrait as we gain understanding of each student’s learning needs and demonstrated capabilities. Our system platforms provide a wealth of data on student performance and activity, which we monitor and analyze so we can spot trends and know when to adjust a student’s learning plan, and where additional support may be needed. These protocols keep students on pace and drive achievement. While providing students with a highly supportive environment, we also strengthen their ability to work independently and take charge of their learning program. By offering individualized curricular paths, flexible study hours, close monitoring and support, and multimedia-driven courses that appeal to different learning styles, KAWA meets diverse student needs with a technology-rich solution that adapts to each learner.
