It is never too early to prepare for college, career or a promising future. At Nextide Academy, by integrating rigorous academics with career-based learning and real world workplace experiences, we ignite students’ passions by creating meaningful learning experiences through career-oriented pathways in fields such as engineering, health care, performing arts, law, and more.
Along with our rigorous curriculum, learning also happens in the form of moderated online discussions in a problem based inquiry (PBI) setting and yearly PBI project requirements. The quarterly participation reports generated gives our students the opportunity to discover the natural inclination towards certain subject areas and understand their talent and passion towards the same. We believe that this knowledge is critical for every individual because when students love what they’re learning, they work harder, dream bigger, and learn more.
Further, our students are constantly in touch with professionals who are invited to participate in these online discussions that gives them access to the real world and hone their skills in shaping their future, college or career.

- Challenging Curriculum for college preparation are studied through a real world profession.
