Orchard Now is an online program that University Preparatory Academy uses to help your student practice Math and Reading skills that they have not yet mastered.

Orchard Learning has created practice activities to address the skills in which they were not proficient, based on his/her diagnostic scores. This program can also generate practice worksheets for each skill for paper and pencil practice, if a printer is available.

For more information about this product and to encourage your student to practice at home, go to www.orchardnow.com. Your student has been given a user name and password to use once they get to the login screen. After your student is logged in, if you click on My Progress on the left-hand side, you can easily see the entire list of skills that have been assigned, along with your student’s progress. Your student should click on the Home button, to work on their practice, tutorials, activities, and games. Students may change their Avatar by clicking on My Tools.

You can feel confident when your student practices using Orchard Now. Orchard Software is award-winning, research based, and is used by over 8,000 schools across the United States. Do not hesitate to contact your school if you have any questions.

Please note that Orchard Now is Flashed-based, which is not supported by iPads, but it has been suggested that Apps, such as “Puffin” and “Rover”, allow Flash-based programs such as Orchard Now, to run on iPads.

We wish your student much success!
