Beasts Level 3

Beasts Level 3 is designed for students who wish to use the Beast Academy program, but want additional instructional support. The level is spread across two 16-week semesters in the fall and spring. Live online classes are offered via a webinar. The course is also offered in a guided (asynchronous) format for those who cannot attend the live course, but wish to have the weekly support. We use the Beast Academy series 3A-D. The fall semester covers books 3A and 3B in the series; spring semester covers books 3C and 3D. The level does not necessarily correspond to grade.

If you wish to cover the material at a faster speed and only need periodic support via questions and answer sessions or email, please consider Flying Beasts.
