What does Asynchronous Mean?

Instruction at the Choctaw Academy is primarily delivered asynchronously in the same format and style of a college online learning course.  This means that online students and teachers can access the virtual courses and participate at various times without being online at the same time.   We are not a synchronous online program with students and teachers logging in and interacting at the same time.  Students are required to complete weekly check-ins with teachers at designated times; those times will be established by the teacher once the academic year begins.  During these synchronous experiences, students and teachers can collaborate on assignments and discuss any concerns either may have.
