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:


Each academy is customized for your schedule and budget. It can be 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or any other range of time. It can fit around any bell schedule and offer content for different grades in the same program.

Online Lessons

The academy uses a customized group of lessons taken from our online lesson service, educeri.com. Teachers simply project the lesson and guide the students through the concept and skills. Works with any Internet-enable device.

Pacing Calendar

Every grade level will receive a digital, conceptually driven pacing calendar to save teacher planning time and maximize instructional time to cover the most amount of content. Each lesson will have a printed student workbook.

Classroom Materials

All materials are provided to make it easy for the teachers and students. This includes: whiteboards, workbooks, posters, lessons, markers, erasers, and more.

Skill Mastery

To build fluency in math and reading skills, digital flashcards are provided along with word games, math stories, reading checklists, performance tasks, and assessments.

Teacher Training

Teachers are trained in the use of engagement and checking-for-understanding strategies that they can use during the regular school year. They also receive interactive coaching sessions to help master the new skills.
