By choosing to enroll in the learning center, parents are choosing to enrich the homeschooling experience for their student. Students could receive direct instruction and classroom activities necessary to master Grade-level Standards or simply explore subjects in a fun and engaging collaborative environment.
Our online programs detail all the lessons that are taught each week in our workshops, empowering parents to be and stay connected to every aspect of their child education.
Our students can enjoy humanities, language arts and history, taught in a variety of workshops such as Travel the Globe, This Week in History and Writing with Purpose. This enables them to read about, write about, and especially have meaningful discussions about history, cultures and current day events. This is especially important as we move into the Common Core State Standards where students will provide evidence that they can analyze, justify and creatively express themselves using technology.
Math is personalized to meet the wide range of abilities and individual needs. Our many online math programs are interactive and designed to identify a student’s area of strength so they can progress at a meaningful rate, and weakness so re-teaching and sufficient practice are accessible to every student. Hands-on physical science allows our students the opportunity to put what they are learning in science at home into practice. Students are able to explore and experiment with materials that may not be as easily accessible at home, or just may be too messy or time consuming for parents to fit in to an already busy homeschool schedule. Drawing on student interests in workshops, such as ESPN Science, makes science relevant and fun.
*PE & Electives
P.E. is a challenge at our site due to site restrictions. Teachers get creative by teaching dance, planning mental/physical challenge activities and creative use of playground space.
All students are given the opportunity to explore academics, and their gifts and talents through our diverse workshop offerings such as Musical theater, Lego League, ASB/Leadership, Journalism, and Visual Arts, German, Pay it Forward (community service focus) and more!
Some of our new classes include:
Destination Imagination, allows students to work in teams of 7 to develop opportunities that inspire the global community of learners to utilize diverse approaches in applying 21st century skills and creativity. Students will learn 21st century skills, teamwork, and creative and critical thinking. Teams will also have the opportunity to compete against other CA schools sharing their story and solution.
Kid Town is a student centered class. A mini-society is established in the classroom as they design a town that will be run by them. The students run their own businesses based solely off student creativity and problem solving skills. They also hold jobs, get paid in currency designed by the students, hold town meetings, make decisions, and run the town like a real society.
This Week in History explores interesting fun facts about people and events that have occurred each week in history. Topics include American history, cars, Hollywood, music presidential, sports, and special interest. Students are taught a mini-lesson on the topic, and then a hands-on activity follows. Students are also encouraged to bring their own interesting facts that happened each week in their family history!
