Compare to Traditional School
Bay Port iAcademy is able to offer students more individual attention that most traditional schools. Instead of teaching 30 students at one time, our instructors primarily interact with students on a one-to-one basis. Bay Port iAcademy teachers use a combination of phone, email, instant messaging, and virtual whiteboards sessions to give students this one-to-one support.
A MODEL BUILT FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS.
With Bay Port iAcademy online education, the student is the focus. Our unique "student-centric" instructional model is tailored to meet each student's needs and aspirations. The result is truly individualized learning.
We're about relationships. Students work closely with certified teachers, receiving personalized and flexible instruction. Thanks to phone, email, virtual whiteboard sessions, and instant messaging communications, Bay Port iAcademy students are never far from one-to-one instruction.
Our students learn to set their own schedules. Each student receives an individualized pace chart that defines due dates for assignments and tests during the 18 week semester. The online semester follows the academic school year calendar, so students taking online courses and who may be taking courses on campus will have the same length of semester to keep schedules uncomplicated.
A student progress map tracks all grades and assignments. Unlike quarterly report cards, parents can monitor their student's progress and attendance on a daily basis. Parent-teacher conferences may be held at any time to address a student's academic, personal, or pacing issues.
SAY HELLO TO A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEARNING
At Bay Port iAcademy, everything revolves around the student. We create an individualized lesson plan that takes into account students' unique scheduling and academic needs. This flexibility means learning virtually when you want, where you want, and how you want.
Our students have access to a robust network of support, which includes our Wisconsin state-certified teachers. Thanks to email, instant messaging, virtual whiteboards, and phone communications, Bay Port iAcademy students are never far from one-on-one academic support.
We don't believe in "one-size-fits-all" learning — an education should be unique to the student receiving it. Bay Port iAcademy's personalized education truly is a better way to learn.

HOW DO TESTS WORK?
At Bay Port iAcademy, all tests are based on the curriculum and the individualized instruction plans for each student. All testing occurs online and requires critical thinking from the student. While based online, test results are not easily replicated, minimizing the potential for academic misconduct. All exams are supplemented by homework assignnments, projects, and quizzes that combine to create a holistic system of student evaluation.
HOW IT WORKS
Bay Port iAcademy Distance Learning serves students in grades 6–12 and gives access to a complete curriculum. We offer scheduling flexibility, provide online access to coursework, and allow students to work at their own pace toward deadlines.
