Novitas Academy is a leader in flexible credit options, so it is only natural that we offer the option for credit recovery or elective credits through an online accredited program. We currently offer classes through Apex Learning, a virtual school that provides a rigorous, standards-based digital curriculum and features robust and relevant real-world content, through which students develop the higher-order thinking skills necessary to demonstrate their knowledge and prepare them for college and career success. Their digital curriculum helps students meet educational standards, while providing teachers with the tools to personalize learning for every student.
Apex Learning recognizes that students come to school with different levels of academic readiness. Their research based program removes barriers to learning by delivering a personalized learning experience, so each student receives the support they need to excel. Each lesson includes multiple opportunities for students to explore, apply, practice, and confirm their learning – helping students visualize concepts and extend their learning. This active learning approach develops critical thinking skills and deep understanding that prepares them for success.
The Novitas program is designed to meet the needs of young men struggling with life skills, learning differences, lack of academic motivation, ADHD as well as mild to moderate behavioral and emotional problems. Novitas is a relationship-based program that strives to help our students build their self-esteem and self-confidence through discovering and nurturing their strengths, passions and dreams.
Novitas Academy uses a blended learning approach that consists of project-based learning, differentiated instruction, online credit recovery classes and career development. Students also partake in a career & college assessment program, local internships and develop an individualized 10-year-plan.
Novitas students will also have the opportunity to attend a local professional technical academy which offers an array of hands on vocational training. Students receive individual, group and family therapy.
