Infinity Academy 2017-18 Application
The Infinity Academy is a blended learning classroom at Paul R. Smith Middle School. This class combines online learning and teacher-led lessons, with students working at their own pace.
Students selected for this class will use the Pasco eSchool curriculum while being supported by highly qualified teachers in the classroom. Students take Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and two electives – one in the Infinity classroom, and one in a traditional classroom. Each student is assigned a MacBook Air laptop computer, which they are free to take home to continue their class work, once the computer is insured.
Students will follow a pacing guide and meet individually with teachers weekly to discuss progress. The ideal Infinity Academy candidate is motivated, independent, and ready to learn!
Student, please email one student composed essay (you may type) explaining why you feel that the blended learning model offered by the Infinity Academy would be the best choice for your middle school education.
In addition, all applicants must email two work samples. These should be from your current school year and may be from subject areas of your choosing. Please choose things that represent you at your very best both creatively and academically.
Both the writing sample and two work samples need to be uploaded with this application. A scanned document or picture will be accepted. Use the upload tool at the bottom of the application. Application deadline March 3rd.
