Scholé Academy Placement Process
Placement Process

One critical factor for restful learning is the proper placement of students. If you are unsure which level is the best fit for your student, reach out to the instructor you are considering. Once registered, anticipate contact regarding placement evaluations from instructors by May 15th and throughout the summer. Students must be registered to enter the placement process. Early placement exams may allow time for tutoring or additional review based on the outcomes. See more about placement evaluations in our Student-Parent Handbook.

Dr. John Dever earned a PhD in mathematics from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2018. Before that he earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics from the University of Mississippi. For the 2018-2019 school year he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. He has had over eight years of experience teaching a wide variety of mathematics courses at the college level. He has also taught middle school and high school mathematics for three years as a volunteer teacher and tutor at an Orthodox Christian school. He enjoys cultivating interest and curiosity in mathematics among students. He prioritizes student participation and discussion in class as means of helping students to build confidence and see the interconnections of the mathematical ideas under discussion. He hopes that students will begin to view mathematics as both a creative activity, in which they may be active participants, as well as a means of practical problem solving. [email protected]

Red checkmarkComputer: You will need a stable, reliable computer, running with a processor with a speed of 1 GHz or better on one of the following operating systems: Mac OS X with Mac OS 10.7 or later; Windows 8, 7, Vista (with SP1 or later), or XP (with SP3 or later). We do not recommend using an iPad or other tablet for joining classes. An inexpensive laptop or netbook would be much better solutions, as they enable you to plug an Ethernet cable directly into your computer. Please note that Chromebooks are allowed but not preferred, as they do not support certain features of the Zoom video conference software such as breakout sessions and annotation, which may be used by our teachers for class activities.

Red checkmarkHigh-Speed Internet Connection: You will also need access to high-speed Internet, preferably accessible via Ethernet cable right into your computer. Using Wi-Fi may work, but will not guarantee you the optimal use of your bandwidth. The faster your Internet, the better. We recommend using a connection with a download/upload speed of 5/1 Mbps or better. You can test your Internet connection here.

Red checkmarkWebcam: You may use an external webcam or one that is built in to the computer. Webcam Recommendations: Good (PC only) | Best (Mac and PC)

Red checkmarkHeadset: We recommend using a headset rather than a built-in microphone and speakers. Using a headset reduces the level of background noise heard by the entire class. Headset Recommendations: USB | 3.5mm

Red checkmarkZoom: We use a web conferencing software called Zoom for our classes, which enables students and teachers to gather from around the globe face to face in real time. Zoom is free to download and easy to use. unnamed-e1455142229376 To download Zoom:
