What is Hyperion Academics?
We are an innovative, full curriculum K-8 educational platform that addresses the problem of the unmotivated student with exciting and engaging strategies towards learning utilizing gamification, interactive storytelling and other cognitive learning methods.
What are the grade levels that Hyperion Academics offers?
We offer courses for Kindergarten through the 8th grade. Starting Summer 2023, we will have courses available for summer school.
What makes Hyperion Academics different from other educational platforms?
Hyperion Academics employs cognitive learning strategies, gamification and an emphasis on pivotal educational basics to nurture, engage and motivate students who are discouraged in their learning journeys. But our site doesn't just help students! Parents and teachers will find our site extremely helpful when having to submit documentation and any state required paperwork. Our lessons are self-graded and we also provide a checklist of standards that the student has completed for any given learning period. No more forms to fill out - the program does it automatically and all you have to do is put in the dates and download.
My child is on the autism spectrum. Does your site cater to students who are neurodiverse?
Yes! Hyperion Academics was developed since its inception to be inclusive and accessible for students of all learning abilities. Students who are mid to higher functioning on the autism spectrum do quite well on our site.
I notice that your site uses different fonts, large type and colorful words. Why do you do that?
We use different fonts, large type and colorful words as a way of incorporating cognitive learning strategies into our educational platform. Studies have shown that just increasing the font size of any learning material increases comprehension, retention and test-taking outcomes by 10-15%. Not only that, but it doesn't matter how old the student is, their educational background or the subject matter being studied.
Can I use any device to use your website?
Yes, you can use any device. Our site works best with tablets, laptops and desktop computers. The website will be able to be accessed via smartphones in January 2024. The best browsers to use for the optimal experience are Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Microsoft Edge for laptops and desktops. For tablets, the browsers on all iPads and the Silk browser on all Kindle Fires work well with our platform. You can also use Samsung and Android browsers. Most browsers work well with our site.
Is the entire educational platform online?
There are a series of downloadable worksheets that are provided for each grade level and for each subject. This can also be used as a physical work sample to turn in for any state requirements. Most of the instruction and exercises are online to provide updated lessons and our trademark gamification platform as well as its automatic grading.
Is this something that my child can do on their own?
Yes. Hyperion Academics is an educational platform that was designed for students to independently interact with self-directed study. Our platform takes students from lesson to lesson while also offering individual choice in selecting lessons based on the student's own interests. You can choose to work with your student as they go through their lessons or you can simply watch while your student engages with our innovative website. Hyperion Academics was developed to motivate and encourage the unmotivated and discouraged student.
When does the companion educational arcade open?
The arcade will open in December 2023.
How many lessons are in each grade?
There are over 900 lessons, exercises or games in each grade. We also have many activities via each student's "room."
As students finish their lessons, they will be able to access the "neighborhood," which can be entered through their rooms. For more information, please click on the Students & Parents/Learning Coaches portal.
I'm in a homeschool charter. Do you take charter funds?
Yes, we do. We take charter funds from Compass Charter Schools, Granite Mountain Charter and Suncoast Preparatory Academy. If you would like for us to be a vendor with your charter, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you to get on your school's vendor list.
Do you have a newsletter?
Yes, we do. Our monthly newsletter starts up in August and goes through June of the following year. The newsletters are filled with information and recent developments about our educational platform. They also have teaching tips and things to do with your student.
