Frequently Asked Questions

The digital curriculum starts from Year 4 (England) grade 3 in the US. All work is presented online but if parents wish their child/ren to complete work in written format this can be done when completing Projects or Science Experiments as well as any other manually graded work.

Generally speaking, a student needs to be completing 2 assignments per subject per day. As the assignments are of varying lengths students should spend approximately 45 minutes per subject per day but this is subject to the length of assignment and number of sections per assignment coupled with the ability of the student. Please factor in all these components and remember to give students comfort and snack or food breaks throughout the day.

The exit qualification is an American High School diploma which works on the credit system when completing subjects. If the student completes all the necessary work related to that subject they will receive the assigned credits and when they completed the necessary credits they will receive the certificate. This certificate has been accepted by NARIC which is a comparability organisation, to the GCSEs in England.

The cost includes access to ALL subjects within the SOE curriculum.
You will find the Placement Tests when you type in “tests” in the Course Assignment screen.
I suggest that you assign the Math and Language Arts Placement Tests as these subjects are what I call CONCEPT subjects where prior knowledge is required and its learning is similar to building a wall where one brick needs to be securely in place before adding the next one. Mastery in these subjects is vital. The other subjects are CONTENT subjects where the students are presented with content at their chronological age level therefore I suggest that students begin on those subjects at their chronological or reading level.

Testimonials

Here’s what our happy students have to say about our courses

“I was a student of Ignitia for 5 years since I was 11 years old till 16. I was having a hard time with school and lacked the one-to-one time with teachers to be properly taught lessons, the teachers at my old school told me that I had a disability in learning math and I would never be able to properly learn mathematics. I noticed when I started using the SwitchedOn Education curriculum I was starting to learn! At the end of the program, I got an A in mathematics and English and the college I attended were amazed at my grades. This would never have been a reality if it were not for the Ignitia program. Many thanks to Graham and Cheryl.”
