Project-based-learning (PBL) is flexible and personalized. Our courses are created in-house by expert educators who can make additional adjustments to curriculum, projects, and pacing guides without compromising the course’s integrity and rigor.
Your child’s Academic Coach will come to know their learning style and areas of interest.
Our highly qualified facilitators design, curate, and write our project-based curriculum.
PBL requires that students learn at a deeper level than when using a standard online curriculum; students are held to a higher level of accountability because they must demonstrate their understanding.
Our core academic courses are aligned with US Common Core Standards (English Language Arts and Mathematics), Next Generation Science Standards, and the internationally recognized US National Council of Social Studies Standards.
Our curriculum is also aligned with the International Society for Technology in Education Standards and the National Quality Standards for Online Learning.

WorldOver is an online school, but we engage students in active (not passive) learning. While some discussions, meetings, and classes are online, much of the learning takes place offline — where students are actively involved in hands-on learning activities.
Yes. WorldOver courses are created with interaction in mind; this includes discussions with peers and facilitators, one-on-one virtual meetings, live tutoring, and multiple collaboration opportunities. Full-time students work with an academic coach who offers guidance, academic planning, and coursework.
Initially, this may be a big worry for families; friends/relatives sometimes feed the fear. However, as time passes, families discover kids have plenty of chances to socialize. They may even have more free time to spend with friends because they can use their school time more efficiently.
WorldOver courses provide opportunities to develop communication and conflict resolution skills — as well as peer relationships.
No. We do not offer special education services; however, every learner enrolled at WorldOver full-time co-creates an Individualized Learning Plan with their learning team. Our educators are masters in customization and personal support. Many families find accommodations and modifications on a typical IEP built into our model of education.
The Individualized Learning Plan created for each student at the start of every school year serves as our guiding document to a personalized educational experience. We value the productive struggle process and are experts in guiding perceived failures as opportunities for growth and future success. Facilitators, academic coaches, peers, and support staff work with your family and child to create a comprehensive support system. WorldOver courses include options for accommodations. We have an open-door policy to meet with your family as a learning team to discuss struggles before they turn into major issues.
At a minimum, any device with internet access will suffice. We strongly recommend a computer (laptop or desktop) with an internal camera and microphone.
