Educational Programs

At EYC Academy, we meet our students where they are – ahead, behind or on-track.

Educational Programs Overview

The team at EYC Academy realizes that education is not a one-size fits all and that families need flexibility as their needs change. That’s why we have created a lane for every learner. Whether learning face-to-face in a building or across a screen, students get the support and encouragement they need to succeed.

We support personalized learning with:

  • Diagnostic and classroom assessments to measure student proficiency in all core subjects
  • Competency-based progression which alleviates students’ fear of failure
  • Robust instructional content aligned to state and Common Core standards
  • Technology-enhanced item types to promote higher-order thinking
  • Intuitive online platforms with student support tools and interactive animation
  • Rich reports and progress monitoring tools that yield actionable data
  • Regular communication of students’ progress with our teaching teams

Courses at EYC Academy are offered at multiple levels: Foundation, Original Credit, Honors, & AP (Advanced Placement), as well as Remediation and Credit Recovery. Our courses consist of integrated assessments that allow learners to move past content they have already mastered and focus on the concepts that need additional attention.

Full & Part-Time Programs

Our engaging learning approach provides unparalleled course flexibility offering over 400 courses (275 of which are MOCAP approved) in a broad range of core subjects, Career and Technical Education, World Languages, and advanced placement coursework.

To make it easier to address the varying levels of readiness students will encounter, we are now offering new accelerated math and ELA mini courses consisting of five-to-nine week courses that are directly aligned to Missouri standards. These five- to nine-week courses provide direct instruction in the essential prerequisite skills that students need to master to be successful in each of their high school math and ELA courses.

Dual Enrollment Program

A program designed to work with your student’s current school. We love creating flexible programs that are perfectly tailored for students. They can take 3 classes at EYC and the rest at their home school district. Whether your child needs fewer classes than a traditional route or needs to work with us for only a portion of their day, our team can’t wait to help you find the right balance.

On-Site or Online Tutoring Solutions

EYC tutoring provides remedial and enrichment instruction, test preparation, as well as homework support. Students may attend on-site, meeting face-to-face with instructors, or they may participate in LIVE virtual sessions. Our online learning platform is accessible from any computer or device with internet connection; thus providing students with the flexibility to meet with a tutor wherever and whenever is best for them. All lessons are provided by experienced educators who offer personalized instruction designed to support a variety of learning styles.

National Diploma & Career Certificates

Many students fall just short of earning a high school diploma. Our teachers can help these learners complete a diploma program that is self-paced, personalized and flexible. Acquiring a National Diploma offers the opportunity to attend vocational schools, technical schools and colleges or to begin a new career path.

Students can also earn a career certificate in the areas of Home Care Professionals, Child Care and Education (CDA), Hospitality and Leisure, Certified Protection Officer, Office Manager, Homeland Security and more. Students choose a career major and take courses directly related to specific occupational responsibilities. These courses can also be used as elective credits in a traditional high school program. Students move through the Career Certificate Program at their own pace with the support of on-line, board-certified teachers.

Private Tutoring & Test Prep

Our one-to-one approach extends to private tutoring services outside of your child’s regular educational schedule. We offer flexible scheduling both in-center and with a live teacher online in our virtual classrooms.

Our tutors work to build rapport and instill confidence in students, focusing on their individual needs in all content areas. In addition to tutoring, many of our students may benefit from academic coaching when it comes to study skills, test-taking skills, organization and more.

Within our approach, we realize that some lessons are more impactful when delivered through engaged discussions with peer-to-peer interaction. Therefore, professional judgment will be made to determine when small group instruction will be appropriate.

Home School Options

More and more families are choosing to home school their children.
EYC Academy can partner with families in many ways—from providing curriculum only with the legacy Calvert Learning Program to providing the qualified teacher to work with students online, to integrating a blend of at-home and onsite learning for socialization and collaboration.

Cognitive and Academic Assessments

Understanding the way in which students learn is fundamental to excellent instruction. Cognitive and academic assessments offer valuable insight into each student’s individual strengths and areas of concern. EYC partners with licensed professionals who provide a comprehensive educational evaluation. Additionally, our teachers can also pinpoint specific academic needs in reading, language arts and math through our virtual assessment program.

Josh – 8th grade

I came to EYC because I was not understanding a lot of things at my other school. EYC has helped me understand my classes so much more, especially math and Spanish. I have been really successful here and I learned that I am good at art.


John – 10th grade

Before I came to EYC, the world seemed very complex. I had a hard time with some subjects. Now I am learning better in most of my classes because I am more focused. The one-on-one format is more suited to the way I learn best.


Julia – 10th grade

I came to EYC because my other school options (private school and homeschooling) haven’t worked for me. This school has a great environment. It is relaxed and not stressful. I love that there is no homework!


Parshall – 10th grade

 I was really struggling at my last school. EYC has an environment that is very supportive and understanding about the way my mind works. I like that I feel comfortable and relaxed here.
