At SCA, learning is personalized for each student's learning needs, based on connecting his or her interests, life values, learning styles, strengths, and career and educational goals.
The key to student learning is the relationship between the student, his or her parents and the facilitator. Together, they decide which of 6 learning methods will best meet the student's needs. The 6 learning options are:
- On-site classes
- Online classes
- Student driven electives
- Shasta Community College or CSU Young Scholar program
Depending on the learning method, assignments are collaboratively created at learning team meetings which are scheduled every 2-4 weeks. If the student or family needs support between meetings, facilitators are readily available by phone, email, text, or in person.
The greatest benefit of this personalized learning model are that parents and students are empowered to make the educational choices that meet the student's needs. They also receive support from a well trained teacher that truly gets to knows each student well. Most importantly, student develop a love of learning.
