How Student Safety is Ensured

  • Students and mentors are assigned a private email box within the Academos Web site and messages are exchanged via a closed server.
  • Mentors are recruited through recognized professional organizations and are background- checked before being accepted; they also receive training.
  • To protect identities, both students and mentors use an alias to communicate.
  • Academos staff monitors message exchanges daily.
  • All emails pass through a filter that eliminates any message containing personal coordinates or harmful content.
  • Students can only access the system once they are registered by a teacher or other school group leader.
