It is a core belief at The Classical Academies that every partnership starts with trust, builds on collaboration, and culminates with accountability. The cornerstone of The Classical Academy program is the partnership parents and teachers share. Teachers, working with parents, create individual learning plans for students that can include technology, classroom learning, labs, electives, and independent study options to complete their assigned academic program. This partnership allows students to excel and thrive in a personalized learning environment to best meet student needs and aspirations.
We begin each school year with a complimentary, one-day, professional, educational conference for parents. The JumpStart Parent Education Conference is held every August and provides over 60 breakout sessions targeting the needs of new and returning families. The event includes a keynote speaker, complimentary lunch in the park, and the opportunity to network and connect with other parents. You can learn more about JumpStart here:
Parents can also subscribe to our Partnering with Parents Podcast and hear from educators, counselors, authors, and specialists on topics related to homeschooling. Our podcast can be found on Spotify, Alexa, Google Play, and iTunes. It can be found here: https://classicalacademy.com/about/partnering-parents-podcast/
Another important piece of our parent partnership is our Parent Volunteer Program which was established to connect parents’ skills, passions, and abilities to their school community. Parent volunteers are highly valued and their leadership and talents are an integral part of Coastal Academy’s success! Coastal Academy uses HelpCounter to manage volunteer needs, allowing the school to match skills, talents, and availability with needs, keeping parents informed.
