Academics

INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAM PLANNING

Each student is assessed for academic level, an audit of transcripts is conducted, and an interview is completed in order to develop the best educational plan for each individual. Students are appropriately placed into the learning delivery method and courses that best fits their needs. Students will continue to work with their Guidance counselor and/or Special Needs coordinators throughout the school year to ensure the original plan continues to be the best option, or if an alternative plan needs to be put in place to ensure that all requirements for graduation are completed. The number of concurrent courses to be completed during each semester is determined by the Charter School’s learning team members, the student, and parents.

COURSE PROGRESS

The academic program at the Charter School is designed for a student to complete one grade level per academic school year. Once enrolled in the high school (grades 9-12) the academic program is designed to be completed in four years or eight semesters. Early graduation is an option if granted in accordance to the Charter School’s procedures.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

Students who attend the Charter School receive a high school graduation diploma awarded when students have met academic requirements for graduation. In order to graduate from the Charter School and receive a diploma a student must satisfy the following:

  • Proficiency in Keystone Literature, Algebra I, and Biology assessments
  • Successful completion of all required courses of study
