In Idaho, there are thousands of students placed on a wait list for a charter school, hoping they can receive a more personalized, quality education.
At iSucceed, we believe every student deserves a great education. That is why we have no wait list and offer open enrollment throughout the year.
You might have heard that charter schools create wait lists to keep their class sizes “small.”
But small class sizes isn’t the only factor to a personalized education. Constant student-teacher interaction and support are what’s key to achieving academic success.
About iSucceed’s Personalized Education: Instructors
Our students often report that they communicate more with their teachers here than they ever did at their old school.
Our teachers spend their day a little differently from the traditional teacher. They don’t focus on 30+ students each hour, then go home to grade papers.
Our teachers hold a few 1-hour live online sessions, the way a traditional teacher holds a class. But most of their day is dedicated to helping students individually. Here are some of the ways teachers communicate with students:
- Phone calls
- Instant messaging
- Course announcements
- 1-1 online tutoring
- In-person appointments

Personalized Education with iSucceed: Quarter Schedule
iSucceed does not follow the traditional semesters. Several classes over a long period of time create unnecessary stress and cause students to lose focus.
That’s why our students enroll in three courses every nine weeks. With the ability for credit recovery or early graduation, it’s what we call a personalized education.
On average, students enroll in three courses at once. But a struggling student could take four courses to get back on track. Alternatively, an excelling student could add on courses to graduate early. This way, our students can achieve their academic goals, no matter how unique their needs.
