Program Overview

StepUP Academy is designed to accelerate learning through effective, research-based lesson design and delivery strategies. It is especially useful for English Learners and struggling students.

The StepUP program combines well-crafted standards-based lessons with a strategically paced curriculum to create a powerful, easy-to-use, short-term learning experience.

Expected Program Results:

  1. measurable gains by students in learning and confidence; and
  2. demonstrable improvement by teachers in effective lesson delivery.

Program Features:

Reading Fundamentals

Our ELA academies are incorporating close reading strategies that help students analyze text structure and synthesize content from diverse media – preparing students to tackle the difficult to analyze informative/expository text of Common Core.

Writing Fundamentals

Our Writing academies center around units such as narrative, informative, or persuasive writing, and give students extensive experience in crafting original stories, writing from sources, and using evidence to support an argument.

Math Fundamentals

Math academies focus on the often-missed test questions in geometric measurement, modeling situations, fractions, and statistics.

Digital Tech

Our engaging new computer-based tech-tivities allow math students to interact with powerful graphing and design software.

Time Saver

Dynamic, digital, and conceptually-driven pacing calendars are built around your schedule. Instructional time is maximized to cover the most amount of content during your academy.

Skill Mastery

Flashcard games give students the opportunity to build fluency in math facts and basic operations, preparing them for higher-level courses.
