Score At The Top Learning Center & School

     Tel: (561)626-2662
Grades: K - 12 | 47 students
Score At The Top is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) as a Special Purpose K-12 School, which means we offer a full-time (or part-time) accredited private school opportunity to students who choose to learn in a 1-on-1 or small class setting.
Score At The Top is also a member of the College Board.
Some students attend our private school because they value the student/teacher mentoring experience that our 1-on-1 and small classroom environment provide.   Others come to us when they hit a "bump in the road" or because their learning disability or ADD/ADHD (attention deficit disorder) has negatively impacted their schoolwork, and the traditional school setting is no longer working.
We help them to refocus and stabilize their education, so they can eventually choose whether to re-enter a traditional classroom or continue with our unique school.
Still others come to us to advance their education because they learn more quickly and easily than others their age.
Bored in a regular classroom, they need an accelerated and challenging curriculum in order to stay on track and make progress.
Whatever the reason, 1-on-1 and small class  learning environments are fluid enough to meet the needs of any situation.
To date, 100% of the students who have earned their high-school diplomas at Score At The Top have successfully continued their education in 4-year colleges.
Score At The Top is also a full-service, comprehensive learning center offering motivational tutoring in all academic subjects; SAT, ACT, and FCAT preparation with proven score gains; and individualized college counseling by Judi Robinovitz, Certified Educational Planner.  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                                               Our Vision & MIssion                                                To be the learning environment of choice.        To provide expert support and guidance to students, inspiring their intellectual curiosity,                                                and motivating them to academic success. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

School Notes:

Away from crowded classrooms, learners thrive in our personalized surroundings. A student discovers, analyzes, questions, and learns - all at a pace suited to her or his needs - led by our professional teaching staff in our signature classroom of one student with one teacher, or in a small classroom of up to six students. Our success in providing both small classroom and 1-on-1 accredited schooling to students is achieved through flexibility as well as breadth of services and courses.  

PRIVATE SCHOOLING WITH SCORE AT THE TOP - HOW DOES IT ALL WORK? The Director will work with you to determine your child's educational needs and then design an academic program, select the best classroom size and teachers, and establish a schedule to match those unique needs. A typical full-time student takes 4-5 core academic courses and up to 2 electives each semester, attending school five days/week for 20-30 hours/week, depending on the student’s educational needs. Some students, however, prefer to attend school four days/week, giving them more time to pursue other activities. We also create special programs for part-time students, such as a plan that combines independent study with scheduled class time (that works well for a motivated, high-achieving student) or one in which a student takes some classes at Score At The Top and other classes in a traditional school or on their own. Some students need a teacher for core curriculum classes but only need supervision for electives. One-on-one and small classroom schooling can also incorporate Florida Virtual School for some or all of the classes, with a Score At The Top teacher to successfully mentor the student through the curriculum. In this case, fewer contact hours may be needed

.A 1-on-1 or small classroom  education at Score At The Top means that your child will learn in a traditional teacher-student classroom setting with ONE MAJOR EXCEPTION: he or she will receive an individualize education in a classroom of up to six students.! Your child will have teachers who specialize in each subject; together, they will follow a schedule of daily classes designed for your child.

CURRICULUM - Score At The Top matches the curriculum to each student's specific learning style and personal goals. Because one curriculum does not fit all students, we will recommend the best one to fulfill your educational plan. We offer courses in all subject areas across all grade levels, from kindergarten through 12th grade, and at all educational levels, from remedial and regular to honors and Advanced Placement. Our AP curriculum and teaching staff have been certified by the College Board. In addition to Score At The Top's own curriculum, we have successfully used other accredited curricula, including student's previous or next school's curriculum: Florida public school Jupiter Christian School, Florida Virtual School, Brigham Young University, Calvert School, Keystone, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska, and others

.WHAT'S A TYPICAL SCHOOL DAY LIKE? The school day can start as early or as late as necessary, based on the time of day when your child learns best, and taking outside activities into consideration. Some students have a short study hall following each class, while other students attend classes consecutively with short breaks between classes in order to be released earlier in the day. Some students have one study hall every day in order to reduce homework time at home. A popular option is early release on Fridays.

WHEN CAN MY CHILD START SCHOOL AT SCORE AT THE TOP? We register students on a rolling basis throughout the year. In fact, it's not unusual to meet with a parent one day and start the student in classes a day or two later. We recognize the importance of continuity of education and set up a schedule to get the student started as soon as possible. You can follow any school's calendar or create your own calendar. This flexibility aids us in creating a successful education plan for your child. You, the parent, collaborate with us on a calendar that meets the needs of your child and family. A student can easily transition into a private or public school after studying at Score At The Top. We can even use the same curriculum as the school in which you plan to enroll your child so that the transition is seamless

.WHO ARE OUR TEACHERS? We are degreed experts with extensive subject knowledge and significant teaching or tutoring experience. We possess a passion for teaching coupled with a thorough understanding of our subjects, expert study skills, and effective communication skills. Teaching that is based upon a student's unique learning style requires real expertise and we at Score At The Top have it. Because our learning community relies as much on our outgoing personalities as it does on our academic expertise, you'll find that our enthusiasm for teaching and learning is contagious. We truly engage a student in the learning process. Some of us are firm - keeping strict standards to maximize a student's performance; others are tender and nurturing - coaxing a student through difficult, sometimes anxiety-inducing work. Your child's personality and learning style will be matched with the teacher who is right for him or her. This will create the best environment for your child to excel. COME LEARN WITH US!
