Four Days on campus
The four-day program serves students who would like to attend class in a traditional classroom setting four days per week (Tuesday-Friday) in a traditional classroom setting. Teachers use lectures, small group interactions, labs, field trips, and projects to deliver an engaging and rigorous curriculum. Students in this program agree to exhibit respectful conduct and academic responsibility, including the timely completion of quality work and daily attendance. Students attend Mentor Advisory 3 times per week to work on self-directed learning. During this time, they work independently to complete schoolwork, collaborate with peers, take assessments, and receive personalized mentoring. Students are assigned to an Academic Counselor to provide guidance and mentorship. Coastal Academy High School is committed to building student resilience through intentional service learning & leadership development opportunities. All classes are year-long courses with the exception of several semester-long electives.
Five Day Independent Study
The Five Day Independent Study Program provides additional flexibility for students and families. Families may choose from several options, including selecting their own curriculum, selecting online courses, working with outside co-ops or vendors, and/or taking community college courses. Students will meet every nine weeks with a credentialed teacher who oversees their progress.
