‘All In’ combines academic programs with natural English communication to help students achieve academic success and increase English fluency.

flipEnglish has a simple belief that some of the best learning is organic, spontaneous and fun. We are committed to helping students develop better communication skills through a combination of education, passion and fun.

‘All In’ will include lessons, projects, games, crafts and cooking that will encourage collaboration and teamwork, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving, and communication.

Why All In?

  • English only!
  • Small class size!
  • Weekly chance to meet and talk with other students!

  • Cross-platform!
  • Fun and interesting!

 ‘All In’ requires an entrance interview. Only students with a demonstrated English ability will be admitted.

Program Content

We believe engaging classes and topics lead to a love for learning. ‘All In’ is an English-only, cross-curriculum e-STEAM program. Our classes focus on communication and speaking. Based on the needs and interests of students, course topics may include:

  • science
  • history
  • geography
  • math (word-based problems)
  • English composition
  • reading
  • spelling/grammar
  • technology (basic computer coding, using presentation tools, video creation)
  • arts and crafts
  • engineering (fun projects that develop teamwork, critical thinking & problem solving)

Our curriculum offers three different Lexile reading levels for each topic, allowing us to select an appropriate reading level for every student.

You may be wondering what we study in class. Currently, some classes are learning about ancient Egypt, focusing on topics like pyramids, the Nile River, mummies and hieroglyphics. They also are learning the ‘mind-map’ method for note taking. Other classes are learning about story telling, including what makes a good story.

Previous units have focused on US government, the solar system, the 5 senses, and Thomas Edison. We’ve also had pizza parties and waffle making contests!

Coming up this spring, we will launch a new series “Courage: Lessons from famous people and events that shaped American culture.”

90-minute class

Based on English proficiency, we are forming classes Friday evening, Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon. We will do our best to work with student’s and families to create a class at the best time for everyone.


Each week, students will be given 1 homework assignment to be completed and submitted before coming to class. Homework may be: a writing project, a verbal book report submitted online, or gathering resources necessary to complete a project. Students will stay connected to their teacher and classmates via teacher led communication on Flipgrid and will give one video update each week.
