YMCA Academy teachers utilize a variety of online resources to connect with students and their families. One such resource is Edmodo, a classroom portal website designed to replicate the look and feel of social media. Academy students use Edmodo to hand in assignments, access course resources, receive assessments and evaluations, and contact their teachers. Edmodo also provides parents and guardians with an account connected to that of their child, that provides unique insight into his or her progress in school.
The Academy hosts an annual TEDx conference, featuring inspiring speakers presenting innovative ideas to foster engagement and provide unique learning opportunities for students who learn differently.
