We are proud to begin our partnership with Hi.Ed Guidance Management System for the 2021-2022 school year!
From their site…
Hi.Ed (Hyper-Individualized Education Design) is an educational tool developed to impact schools by bridging the gaps to obtain success. This is a web-based automated software that thrives on system integrity which eliminates manual labor. Hi.Ed is changing the dynamics of education around the State of Alabama and beyond.
Hi.Ed software is unique because it is customizable per school, easily accessible, and user-friendly. The benefit of this software is that it interprets transcripts and populates data to track graduation requirements and NCAA eligibility seamlessly. Hi.Ed creates transparency between the school and parents/guardians. This software is web-based and can be accessed from any mobile device.
The Hi.Ed Model
Virtual Life: The Virtual Life application gives each student real life responsibilities through live interaction daily. Students will balance a budget while experiencing real life situations. There are three levels of challenges: elementary school, middle school and high school.
Academics: The academic component stresses graduation tracking and connects students with counselors for guidance. Students and parents can also track progress.
Comp-results Tracking Tool: A comprehensive component that tracks students through a data engine and delivers reports to administrators. The reports provide quantitative and qualitative insight about progress and accomplishments. These indicators drive goal setting and vision.
The Market: The Market is a component where hard work meets opportunity. It offers schools the opportunity to add value to their students and elevate their platform for success. Third-Party Subscriber (TPS) component.
Athletics: The athletic component gives a detailed report for NCAA eligibility. The report is current and cumulative starting with the 9th grade. The National Sliding Scale used by the NCAA is used to determine eligibility status. Colors (red, yellow, blue, green) are used along with a summary to indicate the student athlete’s progress.
We think this will be a tremendous addition to our academic program, as well provide additional assistance as we prepare our cadets for the work of life.
The President’s Medal for Meritorious Service is awarded to individuals that go above and beyond the normal call of duty to support the mission of the academy. This year’s medal is awarded to Mr. Jerry Beason, class of 1953. Yes, you read that right…Mr. Beason graduated 70 years ago this spring!
