History of Wings To Soar
Prior to establishing Wings to Soar Online Academy in 2011, for 8 years our founder ran a specialized brick-and-mortar school for struggling learners in Madison, Wisconsin. Over and over, after hearing about our programs parents would state: “I wish your school were here.” We even had one family call from across the country and consider moving so that their kids could attend our school. We get it. Your kids are so important.
Part of the reason we shifted online is to address this critical issue. It’s simply not possible for most people to up and move their families. What if instead, we could bring the same high touch level of education to you, no matter where you live? Because we are a hybrid homeschool and online school for dyslexia, we can serve you and your student anywhere that has internet access. In fact, we are now serving students in over 30 states and 10 foreign countries. And with our variety of options and programs, you choose whether you want to personally provide daily supervision at home or have our Virtual Study Hall Coach keep an eye on your student to make sure they stay on track.
Better results than one-to-one dyslexia tutoring
All kids are different and unique. Our job is to help each one of them in whatever way will get the best results. For example, we find that for students who engage with the online intervention programs in their Path to Success Personalized Reading and Language Arts Learning Plan for about 75-90 minutes per day, we get 1.5 to 3 years or more reading and other skills gains within a single school year. These are outstanding results–even better than what we used to achieve with Orton-Gillingham tutoring. While most families could ordinarily only afford tutoring one to three times per week, our quality computer programs and the variety they provide for your student, can have a major impact on their learning. This also is possible now with our online school for dyslexia from your own home.
We welcome you to enroll in as much or as little is appropriate for your unique situation. It is common for families to start with a year or two of focused reading and math intervention, often along with cognitive skills training and then add writing intervention and more. Once students have completed the essay writing intervention level they can move on to our high school Integrated Liberal Studies series of courses where we weave together history with writing, presentation, and study skills. We also offer math, science, and personal development classes at the middle and high school levels. Each class is designed with students with dyslexia in mind and accommodations are built in for all students.
Our partnership with you
Many families looking for a school for dyslexia choose to enroll full-time with Wings to Soar Online Academy. Our teachers will partner with you, the parent, to provide an education that is fully tailored to your child’s needs. Areas of study such as reading, spelling, grammar, usage, mechanics, math, and cognitive skills place a focus on individual skill building. We use adaptive computer programs that provide immediate feedback to the student. Our teachers also help oversee progress, solve problems, and course correct in real time. We offer weekly small group webcam classes for writing, science, social studies, and personal development. These classes have assignments in online programs between group sessions. For math, we offer daily small group intervention classes. One to one coaching is available for math, writing, and student Success Coaching, as well as for parent accountability and support.
