There are two types of nations on the inside of you, procrastination and determination. The two nations constantly fight against each other. Procrastination tells the person to be a "pro" or a "master" at waiting until the last second to do something. Procrastination says, not now but later and by later I mean some time in the distant future. Determination on the other hand is focused on starting and finishing with absolute focus. Determination will drive you all the way to the finish line in record time. The focus at Mason Run is to make sure that students have determination to start and finish the job of earning a high school diploma. With a committed staff and an excellent curriculum procrastination will always lose the battle to determination at Mason Run.
In order to graduate from high school, students must earn 20 credits in certain areas and complete one of three pathways towards graduation. The pathways include earning 18 points on End of Course exams (passing OGT’s for students enrolled before the 2014-2015 school year), passing the ACT with specific scores, or earning 13 points in an industry credential in one of our Career Tech programs (STNA, Construction, or Microsoft Office). All students must sit and take the EOC’s at least once if they are choosing the ACT or Career Tech pathway for graduation.
At Mason Run, individualized instruction is at the core of our approach. Our learning software, APEX, allows students to be self-paced. In addition, teachers supply supplemental lessons, one-on-one assistance, and set daily instructional goals for each student.
We recognize each student is unique and has their own preferences, styles, and strengths when it comes to learning. Individualized instruction is one of the foundational interventions for academic achievement across all subject areas.
