Students who are interested in a different learning environment within Worthington schools can consider the Worthington Academy as an option. Worthington Academy is designed to provide students with a half-day program that implements a blended learning approach. Students work online on their classes with the support of the Academy teachers to move through their courses. This allows students to move faster on the content areas that they know well and feel confident in and then to have the flexibility to move slower and seek additional support on areas of content that they do not understand as well.
Students will be assigned a session and the other half of their day will continue at WKHS. The morning session runs from 7:45-10:45 and the afternoon session is from 11:30 - 2:30.
The Worthington Academy will host two open houses in 2019 for students and parents interested in learning about the program. These will take place on Thursday, February 7th at 7pm and Saturday, February 9th at 10:00am. The open houses will showcase the unique learning environment, academic pathways, and opportunities to connect throughout the programming in the district. Students and parents will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the Academy staff about the program.
The Worthington Academy is located at 2341 Snouffer Rd., Worthington, OH on the campus of Phoenix Middle School. For more information about the Academy, please visit their website.
