Phoenix, AZ August 6, 2010 – Mercury Online will open to Arizona students in grades K- 8 on August 16, 2010,. Mercury Online Academy offers a hybrid approach to education, by combining the benefits of a face-to-face learning with the flexibility of the online environment. These components make Mercury Online an innovative and unique approach to educating today’s students.
“Online education has changed drastically over the years,” said Gene Eidelman co-founder of Mercury AZ and President of Mercury Education, Inc. “With Mercury, instead of having a teacher lecturing students you have a teacher responding to the individual needs of your child, via the internet.”
Mercury Online Academy is a member of the Mosaica Education, Inc. network of schools, and uses the innovative Paragon© Curriculum, which is fully aligned with Arizona State standards. Paragon© combines the rigor of classical education with the relevance required by contemporary society. Students learn about character, ethics, empathy and self-esteem by studying the world’s great heroes, both canonical and unsung, and by stepping into the shoes of great historical figures, both real and imaginary.
Mercury AZ is open for enrollment for the 2010-11 school year. The academy offers teacher-directed online instruction at home or at one of the Mercury Tech centers. The two centers are located in Phoenix, AZ., at partner schools:
