Immersive Learning Pioneers
WiloStar3D Academy Middle School Program
WiloStar3D’s virtual world homeschooling program has been designed to meet the needs of middle school students looking for an engaging, interactive multidisciplinary approach to virtual learning.
The WiloStar3D online homeschooling middle school curricula is designed around an integrated 3D VR approach to language arts, science and social studies. Students work on core unit studies during focused five week periods. Each unit study focuses on either science or social studies and always includes integrated language arts skills. Language arts skills are taught in the context of each unit study and includes genre studies related to the unit topic.
Students at the middle school level complete a total of 1000 clock hours per school year. Each of our eight unit studies modules calculates out to 80 hours of instructional time. Language Arts requirements calculate out to 100 hours of instructional time.
In addition, students complete a 80 hour PE requirement, and our teacher directed math requirement of 100 hours. Parents may choose to plug in an outside pre-approved math program instead of Teaching Textbooks but this needs to be approved first by WiloStar.
WiloStar’s online virtual school program is designed to give students a healthy online learning environment where they can interact with their peers and teachers during the school day. Students have live class meetings and online study hall requirements.
WiloStar believes in treating each student as an individual and respecting their unique needs. We are one of the very few virtual schools that make learning accommodations for students! Incoming students are given appropriate placement screening and an ILP is created.
WiloStar staff and faculty believes there is no problem that can’t be solved. The key here is communication. If a parent sees something is not working for the student there at home, they let us know and we mobilize to find ways to adapt the learning and find solutions that will help the student.
The WiloStar Student Support team is at the ready to help with extra tutoring, counseling and tech support. For struggling students, we offer several strategies to help get back on track. For techincal issues, we have a skilled and dedicated team ready to help solve your issues.
Please fill out the tech support form to submit a ticket and we will respond promptly. Enrolled students can also refer to the student support desk on the learning dashboard.
