The Classical Academy offers flexible academic programming, which provides quality learning options. Students are guided in achieving academic excellence in an environment that promotes meaningful learning. All programs follow an independent study model with considerable support from credentialed teachers. Student work is assigned on our online learning management system and reviewed at parent-teacher conferences. Students have a variety of learning programs to choose from.
Each year the academics are divided into "units," which are lesson plans packaged into six or seven-week increments. These units are written by credentialed teachers and provide instruction based on the topics, standards, and goals addressed in core curricular areas of language arts, literature, math, science, and history. The Classical Academy exclusively designs the units to facilitate teaching at home.
Supplemental lessons are also provided in character education, and often ties are made with art and music. Units are posted to Schoology, our Learning Management System, one week before the instruction begins, allowing parents the time necessary to plan and prepare for the coming unit of study.
The Classical Academy curriculum supports students in attaining mastery of the California Content Standards. Lessons are adaptable and allow teachers/parents preference. Parents receive prepared lesson plans, answer keys, and accompanying books and resources to teach home lessons.
