Online Academy

As we reflect on the 2020/21 school year, we are pleased to have been able to offer multiple options, both in-school and fully online, for our families. Through this experience, we learned, adjusted, and enhanced every aspect of Stratford’s program to ensure students received the best possible learning experience, whether at school or at home.

In preparation for the upcoming school year, we are anticipating a full return to in-person learning on our campuses, but based on feedback from our school community, we will also continue to offer a fully-aligned, stand-alone online Elementary school — Stratford Online Academy.

Building upon past practice, our goals for rigor, richness, continuity, and connection in Stratford’s K-5 Online Academy will include both familiar curriculum as well as some enhancements.

  • Stratford curriculum, programming, and progression using Saxon Math, Core Knowledge Humanities and Science, Spanish, Computer Programing, STEAM emphasis, opportunities for artistic expression, lesson pacing and calendar aligned with Stratford students’ on-campus experience.
  • Implementation of familiar “Stratford” learning management and student information platforms featuring Schoology and PowerSchool.
  • Class for Zoom, an enhancement to the core Zoom platform that allows for higher levels of virtual engagement.
  • New adaptive learning programs, including iReady and MATHia, to personalize each student’s experience.
  • A unique set of engaging and fun rituals and traditions that will engender a sense of belonging within classrooms and across the Stratford K-5 Online Academy community.
  • Daily Live Opening Circle and Closing Circle.
  • Frequent 1:1 meetings with the teacher to provide additional guidance and keep students on track.
  • Students are easily able to connect with the teacher throughout the day.
  • Our Online Academy features Stratford teachers, trained in online teaching methods, and supported throughout the year by our professional development program and its Curriculum and Innovation team.
