The Bachman Academy academic program is custom designed to meet the educational needs of each student. The teaching staff has developed techniques and has selected materials to enable the student to be successful in developing their own academic skills.
Each student has an individualized core academic curriculum. Advanced learning concepts are presented through programmed learning. A self-paced, interactive approach provides continuous feedback. The student’s attention is reinforced and motivated through success.
Class size is small, with a 5:1 student/teacher ratio.
Each area of the curriculum meets, or exceeds, the Tennessee standards for high school completion and requires 21 credits for graduation.
Direct instruction, visual aids, computers, cooperative activities, tutoring, and differentiated instruction are methods that will ensure that each student’s different learning style is addressed.
Our teachers have special education training and/or advanced degrees, and have many years of experience teaching students with learning difficulties.
Textbooks are selected based on National Assessment of Educational Progress standards and the student’s academic level.
Frequent communication keeps parents informed about their child’s academic and social progress.
