Cal Coast Academy challenges the status quo. We are driven to help students embrace their differences, conquer their challenges, devise personal learning strategies, and gain the skills that will enable them to thrive anywhere they go. We understands that each student is unique, with different aptitudes, needs, and timetables for learning. At Cal Coast Academy, goals are achieved, obstacles are overcome, and confidence is built. On our campus.
In our classrooms. Everyday.
Cal Coast Academy cherishes the variety of perspectives, personalities, and passions that our students bring, and we believe that this diversity makes our school a community where each can learn from all.
Cal Coast Academy offers accredited classes to students who are concurrently enrolled in one of our surrounding public high schools. Local high schools allow their students the option of taking up to three for-credit classes at our school. To allow for a seamless transition, Cal Coast Academy structures class periods to correspond with those of the local public schools.
Recognizing that diversity enriches the exchange of ideas, Cal Coast Academy began accepting International students after becoming a SEVIS certified school in 2013. The expansion of our student body has added greater global awareness to our campus and has considerably augmented the learning experience for all.
Students seeking this learning alternative are typically those who are training to become future world-class athletes, or are heavily involved in other activities, and look to Cal Coast Academy to assist them in meeting their academic requirements while simultaneously complementing their demanding training and traveling obligation with our flexible schedule. Our student athletes are provided with an individualized and comprehensive education of the highest caliber, flexibility, and convenience.
Our Home-Site program provides students and families with an excellent alternative to our campus classroom instruction. The curriculum and educational goals are completely custom-designed and accommodate the specific needs and wants of the families. This unique program benefits a wide range of students including those who have had significant periods of absence from school and are in need of reestablishing "current status" on lessons missed. Other families have chosen this option to facilitate their students' optimal focus and to create a learning pace that is best suited for them. Our Home-Site program allows for customized student learning in the comfort and familiarity of a home environment.
We are committed to operating our school in a way that causes the least amount of disruption for our students and families. For that reason, we have adopted the outdoor classroom model.
Each of our open-air classrooms features retractable tent walls for proper ventilation and accommodates no more than 6 students to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Cal Coast Academy is responsibly and equitably providing students with the in-person education they need amidst this global pandemic.
