First off, Method is a network of independent study public charter schools. As such, we're 100% tuition-free. We serve K-12 students in all Southern California counties using online curriculum built specifically for Method students by Method curriculum developers. Our curriculum is built to match the needs of our students because it was made just for them!
We also feature unlimited teacher support from our awesome CA-credentialed teachers who are specifically experienced in working with students in non-traditional and innovative ways (such as Method), online or even in person at one of our learning centers. Students can also come in to participate in "tiles," which are enrichment programs and learning extensions designed to reinforce learning - and make it fun.
Method uses SmartFox, custom-made online curriculum that's flexible for our K-12 students. And, it works across all devices, keeping students and parents learning and informed.
Exceptional teachers who are experienced at independent study, along with consistent contact and personal instruction is the most important component of any online learning program.
Tiles help round out the holistic learning experience at Method, and help to engage students and create a fun and personal learning environment.
Even if the online curriculum is awesome, students still need regular interaction with a teacher who "gets it." A teacher who understands that lecturing in front of 30 kids doesn’t work anymore (did it ever?).
Method teachers are experts at helping individual students succeed using non-traditional methods.
Our customized sports-based curriculum ensures our students are actively engaged and truly enjoy learning. And our exceptional teachers are former collegiate athletes and experts at helping each individual student succeed. Method includes:
Our online home school program is a perfect fit for students who learn best in a non-traditional setting. All Method students benefit from what we call the "Method Mix," which is our way of delivering an exceptional learning experience for all of our students. The Method Mix features:
Most credit recovery/acceleration at Method happens during summer. Method is Southern California's only online summer school that features a comprehensive UC and NCAA approved course catalog, 100+ course choices, and a simplified enrollment process. We've served nearly 12,000 students over the past three years in our credit recovery and acceleration programs.
Like all programs at Method, summer school is 100% tuition-free.
These days students have options. Traditional public school work for some students, but not all. School choice means all students in Southern California get access to free public schools that aren't traditional, but get exceptional results. Method is open to K-12 students in all SoCal counties who want a results-driven and non-traditional independent study option. To secure a spot for our 2018-19 school year, click below.
