Although parental participation is essential at Athena’s Advanced Academy, it is important that the child be able to fully participate in class. Children should know how to:
- Use the computer and the Internet. (Parental assistance is required if your child has emerging computer and typing skills.)
- Use a microphone to communicate verbally. This is especially important during the weekly webinars. (A headset is recommended for clarity and to reduce echo.)
- Work at a quick pace (e.g. complete a year-long curriculum within a 16-week semester).
Athena’s Advanced Academy classes are appropriate for learners new to the online classroom experience, as well as the seasoned online learner.
