HOW IT WORKS | bigriveracademy



What happens after you Register:
  • You will receive confirmation from Active Network that payment has been processed.

  • Next, you will receive an email to inform you of the next step below. These emails go out periodically.

  • A month before classes begin, all students receive an email with instructions on how to get into their PowerSchool (Haiku) accounts for their classes.

  • From the PowerSchool (Haiku) classrooms, they enter the live classroom for the class on the first day the class meets.

The live classroom:
  • Meets once per week for 90 minutes in a live classroom powered by Adobe Connect.

  • Teachers hold a one hour office hour each week to be available to students who need extra classroom support.

  • Teachers and students develop a dynamic relationship which instills motivation to the non-traditional student.


Outside the live classroom (homework):
  • Students are given one week to complete assignments given by teacher in the live classroom. Our asynchronous elements of our classrooms are powered by PowerSchool Learning.

  • All assignments are due by midnight the day before the next class meets.

Our Philosophy

Synchronous online instruction works. Having the advantage of the live online classroom gives us the edge we need to be truly effective educators. We are strong in our faith and in our teaching abilities.
