In a Project Academy four week mission, students are project managers in charge of selecting, planning, revising and reflecting upon their plan of work. In week one, students jump into action selecting a problem from a range of inquiry options. Once selected, students make a plan of work, join an interest group, and add to the class-wide discussion about overarching issues. After four weeks of researching their problem and crafting a product, students use group and instructor feedback to prepare their project to be displayed in the school-wide showcase. Throughout the experience, instructors provide regular, personalized feedback focused on documenting growth.

WCATY`s Academy provides online classes that replace a quarter of language arts, history, science or math curriculum in over 75 districts. The integrated curriculum begins with complex, real world problems that students dig into by discussing big questions, reading fiction and non- fiction texts, writing persuasive, informative, and creative works, and interacting with other eager minds. Often the highlight of the course, students also participate in face-to-face meetings where they build community and participate in hands-on explorations. Instructors provide regular, personalized feedback throughout the week documenting growth and encouraging reflection.
