How It Works
We have a focus on flexibility and choice. Our families choose us because they want a personalized educational environment with the flexibility of selecting from a large variety of curricular options. Upon enrollment, we provide each family with an Educational Specialist. Together they customize a learning plan for each student. This plan is a design of the curriculum, units, lessons, and topics to be completed during the course of the school year.
Throughout the year, families connect with their Educational Specialist to discuss work and manage progress. This credentialed teacher provides ongoing guidance and support to families, informs students about school enrichment opportunities, and monitors the use of educational funds.
In addition to academic support, each student is allocated instructional funds.These funds are used to purchase curriculum, supplies, lessons, and classes to enhance scholar learning. We also provide free online curriculum resources that can be accessed by the student at any time.
Students have many opportunities to receive instruction both synchronously and asynchronously from our educators. These opportunities include live virtual classes, drop-in learning labs, and clubs. These provide enrichment experiences that enhance knowledge and encourage students to develop new passions and skills.
Each student participates in school-wide assessments three times throughout the school year. These assessments are given virtually. In the spring students are provided the opportunity to participate in the Statewide Assessments provided by the State of Oregon.
