Reviews

Rachel - Current CMASAS Student

Having gone to Christa McAuliffe School of Arts and Sciences before, I know that they're really good about helping the students and caring for their educational needs. But after two years at that...delightful place, this amazes me. At my other online school, you weren't even allowed to skip a lab if you already understood the concept, and now here I am at a different school where they're willing to alter the entire course to make it more practical-science-y. I can't even express how much I love this!! Putting the passion and love back into learning!

CMASAS Student

One thing I have to say about CMASAS is that there is a great deal of student/teacher interaction. I attended another online school my freshman year of high school and I rarely had my questions answered within an acceptable time frame.

CMASAS Student

CMASAS DEFINITELY lives up to the goals they claim. Many of the classes definitely can be challenging, through-provoking, and inspiring. The only time a class is going to be easy is if someone already has the knowledge of it, but needs to go through that class to get to the more advanced level. Of course, that's where the personalized classes come in!

Can Art Heal the Soul?

September 25, 2017

Picasso once said: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Art has long been considered an evocative medium from which great statements can be made. A painting hanging in a gallery will never feel quite the same to two people, just as a large abstract sculpture casting lines of shadow across a crisp fall lawn may represent the rise of consumerism to one and a shady place to eat your lunch to another. But regardless of whether your art looks like Van Gogh or Oh-No, the power of the act has long been professed as having healing capabilities.

In @SoulPancake’s video “How Does Art Heal the Soul?” they put this theory to the test by inviting a scad of test-subjects. Each subject begins by entering a reflective state through a brief interview and questionnaire, and then has their body outlined for them to fill with paint. The first splash of paint is supposed to represent them-- their soul. All others are people or events that have shaped and influenced their lives. Does everyone create a masterpiece worthy of the Louvre? No. But the results that follow the experiment are indisputable. The magic seems not to be in the art itself, but rather, in the reflection following the act. Each test subject reports an 8-37% increase in happiness just from completing this tiny exercise.

Are You Ready to Be Your Own Boss?

September 20, 2017

“It’s too risky,” Aunt Moira warbles, her cornbread perm shaking with her upper lip as you unfurl your carefully constructed plan for your dream start-up. “You’ll wind up sleeping in your parents’ basement,” she warns, dashing lunch crumbs off the table as casually as she’s dashed your ambitions. “Better to just go to Med School.”

Sound familiar? Most budding entrepreneurs have likely had a conversation like this at least once if not countless times over. Betting on yourself can be scary, especially when there’s no mold to follow. So how do you know if you’re ready to take the leap?

Chris Guillebeau is a renowned speaker, blogger, and author of several well-known entrepreneurial books including “The Side Hustle” and “$100 Start-Up.” In his bite-sized video entitled “Are You Ready to Be Your Own Boss?” Guillebeau delves into questions a budding entrepreneur should ask themselves and why he thinks becoming an entrepreneur is actually not the risk people make it out to be.

Many young people find the lure of entrepreneurship quite strong, especially students who have already experienced the flexibility and ownership of an online personalized education. Being your own boss begets more freedom, independence, and of course, the occasional ability to create amazing work while still in your pajamas. (A virtue which cannot be overstated.) The lifestyle can be quite enticing, but breaking the mold and trying to create and monetize something from scratch can also be incredibly daunting. So how do you know if you’re ready?

Advice for Entrepreneurs with Tony Robbins

September 18, 2017

Tony Robbins is a hugely famous businessman, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and life coach. In his interview with @Entrepreneur, he reveals there’s three questions all entrepreneurs need to answer to be successful.

First, ask yourself: What business are we really in? When Steve Jobs asked the team at Apple this question, they answered: “Computers!” Jobs looked at them directly and said: “Well, then we’re sunk.” Because at that time, Microsoft dominated 98% of the computer industry. Apple had no chance to compete in that market. But once Jobs pushed the team to see the question differently, they realized their business was really connecting people to their passions: music, art, photos. And thus, the Apple titan was born. Without clearly delineating what their business was, Apple Computers would never have turned into Apple, now best known for their iPhones.
