Progress Academy's web-based homeschooling program is now utilizing interactive textbooks from the award-winning publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The curriculum features the latest advancements in educational technology and provides tools for academic success in a one-on-one setting.
Online PR News – 26-April-2010 – – Progress Academy has added online, interactive textbooks from the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt family of publishers to its wide range of curriculum for Kindergarten through High School graduation. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s updated and innovative textbook curriculum, combined with the 21st century functionality of Progress Academy’s web-based platform provides a comprehensive education for homeschool students.
According to recent estimates, around 2 million children are homeschooled every year, and that number is growing. Many parents, dissatisfied with a one-size-fits-all approach to education, choose homeschooling in order to customize their child’s curriculum according to learning style and preferred pace. Other families choose homeschooling in order to provide a safer learning environment, free from the distractions of drugs, bullying, and other social issues common in the school setting.
Whether students need a faster pace with more of a challenge, a slower pace so challenges can be overcome, or just a distraction-free environment to aid concentration, Progress Academy makes homeschooling a viable choice for any family. Niqui Chatfield, co-founder of Progress Academy says, “We provide the curriculum and the support to enable parents to homeschool their children in a way that prepares them for a lifetime of academic success. Students work at their own pace, enhancing productivity by using the most innovative advances in educational technology. Products from the award-winning publishers, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, will be a great addition to our curriculum.”
