Virtual Small Classes

A small ratio of onset learning with your classmates. Student and teacher work toward closing the gap in their challenges using data-driven results. Students learn goal settings based on state standards. 

Ms. DeSena works to determine a theme to a story. Using video, PowerPoint, and whiteboard she is able to work with all of her students in a classroom setting.

Test Prep

One on One Meetings

Ensure high-quality learning for all. Instruction is personalized based on each student's strengths, needs, and interests. Students will work collaboratively, learn effective communication, and "learn how to learn" in a personal environment.

Ms. Amy goes over a math lesson about primes and composites. This is a great time to get individual attention with your teacher.

1 on 1 Meeting
Study Hall

Study Hall

Study halls are hosted virtually every week. Each teacher will have designated times that study hall is open and based on the subject area. Study hall is designed to help students in specific subjects. Ask your homeroom teacher to direct you to subject-specific study halls when you need it.

Our student scholar program is for students to act as tutors or "help a friend". You should ask your homeroom teacher about participation and how to help or get help. 

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular tiles are 9 weeks "elective classes". Students can participate in 3 - 4 tiles but aren't required. These are good opportunities for students to socialize with their classmates in and out of the classroom. You can also discover new interests or pick up a new hobby. Try our Comic Book Conquerors or Jam with Joe and learn how to play electric or acoustic guitar. Students can enjoy hands-on learning or discussion.
