Fifth Quarter is also for advanced students.


For example, Miguel will be entering the sixth grade at Sam Houston Collegiate Preparatory Elementary.  He finished fifth-grade math nearly at grade level.  He wants to start sixth-grade math early, so he enrolls in the Fifth Quarter at the Academy of Advanced Learning and takes grade-level, 6th-grade math.  The assessment at the end of the summer (either the NWEA summer assessment or our own assessment) shows that Miguel is on-track and has a high likelihood of being on grade-level at the end of the course. 


When the 2020-2021 school year starts, Miguel will have the choice of continuing the course online or going into an accelerated on-site course.  Both the online and on-site courses will finish by mid-March, the end of the traditional third quarter.  Miguel will then have an additional quarter to extend his math knowledge, conduct projects, complete service hours, or join an elective.


Miguel will also have to perform well on the mid-year NWEA assessments in order to continue in the online or accelerated courses.
