These courses have been approved by the California Learning Resources Network (CLRN) after going through a rigorous adoption process and approval by the UC system to be considered college preparatory courses.
In addition to using Edgenuity courses, CAO utilizes Schoology for other Classical Academy specific courses such as College & Career Planning, Independent Study Physical Education, and Work Experience.
All work samples, PE, Reading Logs, and books should be turned in before taking a cumulative exam. All course work and performance tasks need to be complete before taking a cumulative exam. Please contact your Academic Coach if you have questions.
In addition to using Edgenuity courses, CAO utilizes Schoology for other Classical Academy specific courses such as College & Career Development, Independent Study Physical Education, and AP Courses.
In conjunction with the online courses, CAO offers weekly Collaboratives and Labs in specific subjects. During these Collaboratives and Labs students can meet with teachers or complete hands-on science labs.
While in the cafe, students can work one-on-one or in small in groups with tutors or teachers for extra instruction.
At the end of each lesson and unit the online learning programs assign a quiz or test. Students are given 2 attempts on quizzes and tests to achieve an 80% or higher on the unit quiz or test. If a student does not earn an 80% or higher, then he or she will need to repeat some assignments and review with the subject-area teacher. After completing these steps, the student may retake the unit quiz or test. If the test is passed, the student moves on to the next unit. If the student does not pass a second time, a meeting will be arranged with the subject-area teacher to take the quiz or test in an alternate form, receive more instruction from the teacher, or the teacher may allow the student to move on to the next unit at the teacher’s discretion and the demonstration of student understanding.
Students and parents will conference with the ES nine times per year – at the beginning of the year and during the middle and the end of each of three quarters. (checking for accuracy)
