This week all of Beacon Academy, a Nevada statewide high school, sophomores, juniors and seniors will be taking their High School Proficiency Exams (HSPE). For sophomores, this is the first time they are taking these exams en route to earning their accredited online high school diploma.
Beacon Academy students will be testing in Reno, Las Vegas, and Elko. Passing the four high school proficiency examinations; math, science, reading, and writing, is critical for our students in order to complete their high school diploma program. Although Beacon Academy is a virtual online public charter high school, this is one time that students must attend in person to participate in these mandatory examinations.
Throughout the school year, Beacon Academy students have been working hard to prepare for these important high school proficiency examinations. Beacon Academy students attended various boot camps in all four-subject areas. Our teachers meet face-to-face and online with our students and work through various types of problems and situations in both math and science. The math department holds marathon math camps for Beacon Academy students. These marathon math camps are well attended by the students at this Nevada online charter school.
The students also practice and prepare for both the reading and writing portions of the high school proficiency examination. In addition to the boot camps for these two subjects, in all Beacon Academy classes more reading for comprehension and writing skills exercises are included. The goal is to increase the student’s depth of knowledge on the tested subjects and give the necessary tools to both pass these examinations and become productive members of society. In summary, Beacon Academy, the only accredited virtual high school Nevada, goes the extra mile to help our students succeed and earn their high school diploma online and our students take clear advantage of this opportunity.
