How It Works
How Online High School Works
Who can attend?
The iQ Academy Minnesota (IQMN) high school program serves students in grades 9–12 who reside in Minnesota.
What are the costs?
Because IQMN is part of the public school system, it's tuition-free. Enrolled families receive the Stride K12 curriculum, and eligible families receive a loaner computer and printer.
Expectations for Completing Schoolwork
At IQMN, student learning and academic growth are paramount. While we offer a level of flexibility, we recognize the importance of classroom pacing and the need for students to complete their work based on set due dates.
IQMN high school uses a semester-based approach where students are required to earn a passing grade on their assignments and online lessons. Due dates are assigned to lessons to encourage consistent, steady progress for academic success.
Attending teacher-led, direct-instruction, online synchronous Class Connect sessions, along with completing coursework, will help students be successful.
Working with Your Teacher
Teachers provide individual and small group assistance via online synchronous sessions called "Class Connects." Students are expected to attend all required Class Connects and meet with their teacher to receive course assistance, tutoring, and instruction. Class Connects vary by subject and are scheduled by your teacher.
Email is the primary form of communication between the school and families. Learning Coaches and students are required to check and respond to emails on a daily basis.
IQMN students must comply with all Minnesota-mandated testing requirements.
