Connecting

To connect students with prospective U.S. schools by building an accurate readiness rating and holistic student profile for the U.S.-Based Independent Schools to drive their admissions process.

The Ascend Experience

The Ascend Program is a monthly offering (multiple months results in most accurate data) by Incline Learning, designed to prepare foreign students for a U.S. Based Schooling Experience, while simultaneously connecting students with prospective U.S. Schools. 

A standard month of activities includes unlimited access to our award winning digital content for all subject areas. English and Social Studies are guided by an English speaking teacher who works with each student individually for 30 minutes, 12 times a month. 

Initial family communication and student entry diagnosis is conducted by a native language speaking Program Director.

The flow is represented by hovering over the images below.

Each family will have an initial conversation with a Director speaking their native language. This conversation includes diagnostic questions that are used to determine a student's current state of preparedness and goals for attending U.S. Based schooling.

Once this information has been collected, our Directors work with Teachers to create a Personalized Growth Plan (PGP) for each student. This PGP is updated three times a week (12 per month) with the student.

While students are working through the Ascend Program to establish a an accurate representation of their preparedness with our Readiness Index, Teacher Feedback and ePortfolio, they also are exposed to the highest quality Standards Aligned curriculum.

 

Each student is enrolled in a customized version of our Online Resource Bundles (ORBs). ORBs represent a comprehensive Junior High Curriculum that was designed specifically to meet the learning requirements of today's digital learner.
