Two Different Models
We offer a structured mainstream/inclusion program for exceptional students who may be able to handle the load of standard classes, but may need assistance in one or more areas. ICA provides aides who will be assigned to these students, making sure they are successful in those classes and in areas such as social issues. Should the student finish this standard academic program, they would be awarded a standard high school diploma with standard Florida course codes for transcript purposes.
ICA also knows that not every student will be ready to learn using a standardized curriculum, and would succeed better in a slower-paced learning environment. For this reason, ICA has developed a self-contained classroom in each of the grade sections - one for elementary, one for middle school, and one for high school. The maximum student count for each classroom is ten students, so these classes do fill up very fast. Each classroom has a lead teacher and an assistant teacher, resulting in a 5:1 student to teacher ratio. Students who remain in the self-contained program all the way through high school graduation will receive a standard diploma, but the transcripts will show that the courses taken were mostly "Access" courses and not standard courses. Access courses are courses that cover require content of that subject, but on a more accessible level for exceptional students.
