Are your courses semestered or non-semestered?
At The Element, some of our courses are semestered and others run as full year courses. Many of the core courses lend themselves better to the frequent and ongoing lesson format that a full-year course provides (Math, English etc.). Other courses, such as many of the electives, lend themselves better to a more concentrated study that enables our students to undertake more focussed and in-depth work.
Semestering some electives also enables us to make use of professionals who work in specific fields and who are thereby able to provide our students with a deeper and more applied exploration of the content.
