For each subject, students meet one-to-one with their teacher once a week or more per class. After each class, students work in our Guided Study to complete assignments and projects. There are two designated spaces on Futures campuses that students can call their own. “The Hangout” offers a relaxing atmosphere to socialize with friends, watch TV, play music and work on group projects. “The Guided Study” is a comfortable place to finish assignments, study for tests or get help from on-staff tutors. Here, schoolwork doesn't mean homework!
Jessica is in the 11th grade. She’s a competitive ice skater with an Olympic dream. On Monday, she trains from 5:30AM – 7:30AM then heads to Futures Academy. She takes two subjects at 8:30AM & 10AM and stays on campus until 4PM to finish her schoolwork for the classes she had that day. She may have additional schoolwork to take home with her, as sometimes it’s easier for her to finish up at home. Tuesdays are full training days from 9:00 to 3:00 and she doesn't have any classes.
On Wednesday, she takes two subjects at 7:30 AM and 10:30 AM and stays on campus until 3:00 to finish her schoolwork, then trains at the rink from 4-6PM. Thursday is also a full practice day on the ice from Noon to 5PM with no classes. On Fridays, she takes one subject at 7:30AM and stays on campus until 11AM to finish her schoolwork then usually leaves by 11AM to travel to competitions and finishes any schoolwork on planes or in the car.
Our son has been going to Futures for 2 years now. He loves it. We love it. He's actually learning. The one-on-one teaching format is excellent. He usually finishes all of his homework at school. Since the pandemic, the school has transitioned flawlessly to an online learning model and our son loves it. My wife and I highly recommend it.
