Why SIRES Academy?How fun is playing World of Warcraft* or Call to Duty**? A lot, huh? You can sit at your computer and play for hours if your parental units would let you, right?  What keeps you sitting there hour upon hour? It's FUN! approve We get that. 

Did you know you're learning while you're playing?  Studies have shown that while you're playing you're learning 
  • how to think strategically
  • economics
  • typing
  • communication
  • tolerance
  • computer skills  
And you're developing skills in 
  • Critical thinking
  • Socialization
  • Teaching and mentoring
  • Teamwork
At SIRES Academy we believe learning should not be a chore. Learning should be something you want to do! And what better way than to allow you to study when you want to and for as long as you want to?  What better way than to provide academic content that is engaging and motivational? 

Virtual learning is like nothing you've experienced in the physical classroom. Virtual learning allows you to develop
  • Time management skills
  • A sense of ownership
  • A sense of responsibility for your actions
  • Research skills
And you're not alone! Your teachers are right there with you guiding you and helping you shape your own learning. In fact, SIRES Academy's administrators and staff members are online learners just like you are once you've enrolled into SIRES Academy! So, yeah. We get that.  We know from personal experience how rich and rewarding virtual learning is. Does that make us smarter than everyone else?  Probably.... tongueout
