- Multiple supports, including captioning, text-to-speech read aloud, translation, and the ability to pause/rewind/replay instruction.

While online courses offer flexibility, they also require self-motivation and time management skills. Most students can expect to spend 4-5 hours per day on their coursework.
We encourage students to review and/or submit work five times a week when not at major competitions.
Our online calendar template allows students to schedule their coursework over a 12 month period to permit winter athletes to do more focused work during the summer and for summer athletes to increase their workload in the winter.
Our learning coaches work closely with students to plan appropriate schedules.
