Evaluating Student Needs and Skills

Online K-12 academic planning is a cornerstone of Mati Talent Institute’ academic approach. It’s essential that new students across grades K-12 are set up for academic success from the moment of enrollment.

In communication with Admissions Coordinators and families, Placement Counselors confirm needed prior academic information for a prospective student. They thoughtfully design an appropriate course schedule, which also takes into consideration upper school students’ post-secondary goals.

Once students are enrolled, their academic progress is monitored and this contributes to course scheduling conversations offered each year. Lower and Middle School (K-8) students will have the opportunity to have conversations with experienced and devoted teachers, and Upper School (9-12) students will work with their counselors to design a course schedule that meets their academic needs.
