STUDENTS WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM OUR PROGRAM
Students with attention challenges
- Our students with attention challenges benefit from our small and individualized learning environments that don’t compromise on quality and rigor.
Students with learning differences
Our students with IEPs or other learning needs receive specialized support through accommodations in the delivery of the curriculum to meet their growth plans.
Students looking for accelerated or rigorous opportunities
Our students have many opportunities to challenge themselves through AP courses, college courses, and an accelerated 3-year high school plan. Students will need prior approval from CCP staff before enrolling in these options.
Students with competitive extracurricular activities
Our students participating in extracurricular activities (athletics, performances, experiences abroad) have schedules and commitments that may not fit the traditional bell schedule. We provide flexible course and support options, both in-person and online, to ensure students meet their academic and extracurricular goals.
Students with physical and mental health needs
Our students with physical and mental health needs, including anxiety, depression, and 504s, join our small and supportive community. Our flexible learning environment allows students with health and/or mental health needs to participate in-person and online so that they can navigate appointments and treatments.
Students needing an inclusive environment
Our students look to transfer from larger schools to CCP’s smaller environment that is socially supportive and inclusive of all student backgrounds.
Students experiencing learning loss
Our students that have experienced COVID-related learning loss can take advantage of CCP’s flexible options to make up courses they didn’t pass or improve grades for their college applications. Additionally, our small learning community helps transition students academically and socially back to school.
Students transitioning from homeschooling
Our students transitioning from a homeschooled environment benefit from a smaller learning environment with additional opportunities to socialize and collaborate with peers during Homework Hub, class (6 students max), and student clubs. Weekly 1:1 adult mentor check-ins support the home to school transition.
