Maverick is a Hybrid Educational Program for Students with Dyslexia and non-traditional learners. It is a co-educational setting for student in the age range from 4 to 18 years old. Founded in 2013, Maverick strives to inspire students to achieve academic excellence, develop social responsibility through service learning and community projects, and grow lifelong friendships. These goals are made possible by the dedicated instructors and staff who nurture strengths and skills.
The augmented schedule encourages real-life learning and educational experiences while promoting academic skills.
Our method is to instruct to the highest level and to assign work according to skill level of those within the seminar. We do not follow any “public school standards” other than to cover required material within each seminar we offer. We use a variety of literature and sites which are age appropriate and have been researched by our instructors.
In addition to the posted classes, each Student receives two individual one-on-one tutoring sessions per week in the Barton Reading and Spelling System, an Orton-Gillingham based curriculum for a portion of our Language Arts. This curriculum is used with fidelity by Master trained Barton Tutors.
The students attending Maverick courses are typically challenged by reading large amounts of technical text for information. Mavericks will have access to Learning Ally audio books as well as other audible resources for listening to the information needed to complete course work.
Maverick Students prove mastery of any and all of our subjects offered through oral presentations. Students are part of our Computer Application courses to work on and prepare the presentations for the other courses offered. This course includes instruction in Google Application Suites. Additionally, Mavericks have a Public Speaking class which allows them to practice and learn solid, life-long useful group and solo presentation skills.
