Sphinx Academy is a nationally-accredited, Kentucky-certified, full-time school providing a student-centered, blended learning, flexible environment that serves students in grades 8 through 12.
Learning Coaches meet with students once a week. They work on an individualized plan through which content delivery, pace, load, and schedule are decided together. Decisions are flexible based on success and changing student needs.
Sphinx Academy staff establish connections with community members and organizations to provide real-world experiences, practical life skills, and creative outlets.
At Sphinx Academy, students are offered courses with combined features of online and onsite classes. In addition to regular class meetings, our courses allow students to work independently or with individual support for uninterrupted blocks of time at their own pace. Mastery is assessed through projects, discussions, quizzes, and unit assessments to ensure a deeper understanding of the content.
Sphinx Academy learning coaches act as advisors, facilitators, and mediators. They support the students in their day-to-day emotional, social, and academic needs and they facilitate and organize field trips, internships, community service projects, extracurricular clubs, Socratic discussions, career exploration, and many more activities. They also encourage their students to pursue independent studies exploring their interest areas.
