MGM offers clinical support based on each student’s needs in coordination with our sister company MGM Behavioral. Our clinical program is specially designed for children with socio-emotional problems. It helps the students to achieve their socio-emotional needs so that they become fully mature socially and emotionally. Embedded within their core courses, students are taught psycho-social concepts through supportive and therapeutic dialogues. This helps them to understand these concepts and they start to apply them to themselves. Resultantly, they start to change and adapt their behavior and skills, start communicating, set goals, and ultimately achieving them.

How does the adaptive diagnostic assessment work?
The diagnostic assessments are computer-adaptive tests that measure skill readiness and academic growth in mathematics, reading, and language arts. As students take the assessment, the algorithm of the test works in real-time to deliver specific questions. For example, if the student answers incorrectly, the assessment lowers the difficulty level for the next item. On the other hand, if the student answers correctly, the assessment raises the difficulty level for the next item. This video provides details on the goals and process.
How long does it take for a student to finish an online course?
Students are given 18 weeks to complete a (semester-long) course. Our certified teachers set benchmarks and help students stay on schedule. Diploma-seeking high school students have four years from the time of enrollment to meet the pre-set requirements and complete their high school graduation program.
