Our job is to prepare students to be scholar-athletes in high school and college. This means a rigorous academic schedule aligned to California Common Core state standards, using curricula approved by the California Department of Education.
Our educational program is designed to meet students at their level, with a small class size to allow our teachers to offer students more personalized instruction. We also strategically utilize technology in our classrooms to provide students with a more individualized learning experience and the ability for parents to easily follow their child’s progress.
Your child’s academic learning plan is carefully drafted to support their individual strengths and needs as a student. Throughout the program, we make sure students get the support and information they require to learn and grow at their best.
Students in 7th & 8th grade can select from text-based or online courses or may choose a combination of curriculum options as needed to create an optimal learning experience. In addition, beginning in 7th grade, students are eligible to join our online social network and clubs. We want all students of our accredited online school to enjoy the benefits of developing a network of peers with whom to collaborate and share support for one another as they advance through their online education and beyond.
Our online middle school program offers students the option to accelerate and prepare for the rigor of upper school. Students can take high school level courses and earn credit that applies toward their high school graduation.
No. This is a core curriculum, not a test prep curriculum. In ELA students will engage with a variety of texts. These cover a range of topics and genres, including works by Ray Bradbury and Walt Whitman, as well as an essay about Civil War heroes, narratives about the Holocaust, and Elie Wiesel’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech. In math, they will be learning conceptually: they will be able to explain underlying mathematical concepts and apply it to a variety of situations, rather than just rote memorization. The alignment to the SAT comes with the complexity of the texts they will read in ELA, and types of questions they will be expected to answer in both subjects. This will be reinforced both on daily lessons and periodic unit assessments.
Both our core and digital curriculum have frequent opportunities for teachers to gather data on how students are progressing. Our online educational providers will communicate through reports. Additionally, a parent can request an individual update at any time.
Students are graded on a 4.0, A-F scale. Individual grades are made up from a combination of daily class work, quiz and unit assessments, homework, and participation.
