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 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. Daily, students attend Mentor Advisory to work on self directed learning. They work independently to complete schoolwork, collaborate with peers, take assessments, and receive personalized mentoring. Students are assigned to an Academic Coach 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.
The Partial Online program is designed to meet the unique needs of students who may benefit from a more flexible, independent learning environment. Students may select which classes they prefer to take on campus and which they’d like to take online (based on availability and space). An Academic Coach meets with each student to ensure proper placement. 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 meet on campus weekly 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. Students will meet every nine weeks with a credentialed teacher who oversees their progress.
