Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning In 2011 Mission Dolores Academy partnered with Seton Education Partners to pioneer the concept of data-driven instruction based on the integration of online learning and traditional teacher-led instruction known as Blended Learning. One of the first schools in the country to commit to integrating online learning into its core curriculum, blended learning at our school consists of students spending approximately a third of their class time working online and the rest offline.

English Language Learner program details Approximately two-thirds of our students come from homes where English is not the primary language. As a result, many students enter our school behind grade level in reading. To help students catch up, we launched our Reading Education and Development (READ) Program in 2013. The goal of READ is to help students break into this world of reading by meeting them exactly where they are in their reading ability and move them toward grade-level proficiency.
English Language Learner programs Self-contained ELL classrooms
