Four Days on campus
The four day Program is designed to serve students who would like to attend class in a traditional classroom setting four days per week (Tuesday – Friday) in a traditional classroom environment. 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. All classes are year long courses with the exception of several semester long electives.
The Online program is designed to meet the unique needs of students who may benefit from a more flexible, independent learning environment. As space allows and for select classes, students indicate which classes they prefer to take on campus and which they’d like to take online. The Academic Coach meets with each student to ensure proper placement in the Online program. Online students will utilize the same curriculum as classroom-based students, however will have increased flexibility to complete their schoolwork at home. Online students are required to come on campus weekly to meet with their subject matter credentialed teacher for group collaboration, teacher led direct instruction, student accountability and support.
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. All students will meet every six weeks with a credentialed teacher who oversees their progress.
