Welcome to The Jaguar Academy

  • For us to ‘live’ our why, we must commit to meeting students where they are at as individual learners.  Throughout the past year, Northern Cass has studied Mass Customized Learning (MCL).  MCL utilizes research-based methods of individualizing learning to allow learners to reach their potential at a customized pace.

    The Jaguar Academy will be our first attempt to bring MCL to Northern Cass.  Students in 8th and 9th grade who opted to participate will work at their own pace in a customized environment.  An instructional model based on proficiency will be utilized.  In this model, students must be proficient before moving on to another topic.  Students will also choose to work towards applied learning.  Applied learning requires students to demonstrate their skills at a level above proficiency in a manner which has value beyond school. 

    Northern Cass has established an ambitious goal of moving towards a MCL model for the entire district.  Senate Bill 2186 (Innovation in Schools) allowed us to propose a plan for innovation which linked to the Jaguar Academy.   Our proposal was approved and we have begun changing the paradigm of teaching and learning in our district.
