This Year at Method

Method isn't just a school. It's a community. Because Method is virtual, attendance is open from July through January. After January, the attendance window is typically closed for the current year.

Why We're Here

We’re in business because of trust and choice – not because students are assigned to us based on where they live. We need to earn that trust through every single interaction, every single day.  We win with lower student-teacher ratios, custom curriculum solutions, and a team-first, adaptable culture. Our business model is enabled by new revenue sources derived from internally developed innovations originally built as solutions to Method’s own pain points. These innovations build trust, enhance our product, improve academic outcomes, and grow our brand position in a crowded and redundant market space.

SmartFox: Custom-made by Method curriculum pros just for Method Students

SmartFox, custom built by Method curriculum development professionals, is UC and NCAA approved, and students like it because it's simple to navigate and it works on all their devices. Perhaps one of the best features is that SmartFox keeps California education funds in California, rather than sending to an out-of-state vendor.
