agreeing to Wellington Hall Academy guidelines and policies

Students will have access to an online community of learning through their online courses. In person, the students will be a part of the larger WHA community. They are expected to participate in assemblies and other activities at the school. Their classroom will have peers ranging from grades 7 - 10.
Students are expected to arrive before 9 am - learning will begin promptly at 9am. From 9-noon students will work on their online courses, participate in group discussions, and work on on-going hands-on activities. They are required to stay in the classroom OR send hourly progress updates to the coordinator if doing distance learning. Students are then give a lunch hour, which they are free to use. In the afternoon students will do leadership activities around the school and finish the day by meeting with on-on-one with the classroom coordinator to discuss what was accomplished and goals for the following day.
WHA Junior High students will receive more focused attention. The classroom coordinator will be able to work one-on-one to help students work through challenging materials and enrich their online learning experience. The school will also provide a small and tight knit community for the students.
Yes! If students are doing in-person learning they are required to do their work in a WHA classroom. If online learning, the students are required to check in hourly to demonstrate progress on their work. Consistent failure to check-in will result in a discussion with parents about whether or not the format is working for the student.
