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!

Time Management for Students

July 26, 2017

Being a student can sometimes feel like you’re ensconced in a Gumby-like body that’s being pulled in every direction. Finding ways to organize your time may not be the most fun task in the world, but it can really help get rid of that constant “where-am-I-going-what-am-I-doing” brand of anxiety.

Mariana from Mariana’s Study corner has several tips and tricks students can use when trying to win at time management. The first tool? A good planner. Mariana describes how learning to fit your priorities into the small boxes of a planner is actually a lot like life: you have to be specific about what is most important, otherwise you won’t be able to fit everything in and will feel dissatisfied with your progress. “Setting an unrealistic goal,” Mariana cautions, “is one of the worst mistakes any student can make.”

Mariana also has ways to help her decide what task to tackle first. “When I write lists in my planner, I like to use a bullet system and organize my tasks with symbols, using a triangle for priority tasks, and a circle for non-priority tasks.”

How Military Children Can Prepare for Switching to an Online School

July 24, 2017

Switching to an online school can have a huge benefit for military children who relocate often. Having a school that moves with you wherever you go ensures that a student’s education, momentum, and connection to teachers and friends will continue uninterrupted. Here are five tips to help military children prepare for switching to an online school.

Tip #1: Become a research sponge. Learn about your options, and take time to absorb them. As Military One Source points out, “The more you know, the less anxious you’ll feel.” A simple online search for “Best Online High Schools” will yield many options to explore. Traverse school websites to figure out how they compare to your old school, and what features you can look forward to. Most online schools have a strong social media presence, so you can also check out reviews by reading student and parent comments made on platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

Tip #2: Call Ahead. Changing schools can be overwhelming, and a real-time conversation with an enrollment counselor can help answer any questions, and offer a better overview of the school’s ethos and offerings. Calling also gives you a good opportunity to discuss in greater depth certain classes, military discounts, or clubs you may be interested in. If you’ve already chosen your new school, call ahead to see if there's anything specific you need to do to get ready.

How Long Deployments Affect School-Age Children

July 21, 2017

Serving in the military is one of the greatest honors one can choose to show their love for their country. As time goes on and the idea of starting a family comes into the picture, however, long deployments and constant travel can be very difficult, especially for children who yearn for consistency in their lives.

Some military children adjust well, while others may not. This is why we chose to write this blog post. Note that the research we share here may come across as shocking and that our intention is to help share information that may benefit children who struggle to feel grounded when parents serve long deployments.

There are many indications that a child may not be adjusting well. Perhaps you notice her eating and sleeping patterns shifting dramatically. Perhaps he begins to show uncharacteristic aggression toward himself or others. Perhaps your teenager becomes listless and stops caring about school, or your toddler suddenly clings tighter to you than a pair of kid’s pantyhose. If this carries on, it may mean your child is struggling to adjust.  

So how can you tell if long deployments are what is causing your child stress? The US Department of Veteran Affairs tells us: “Children's reactions to a parent's deployment vary by child, and more broadly, by a child's developmental stage, age, and presence of any preexisting psychological or behavioral problems. Very young children may exhibit separation anxiety, temper tantrums, and changes in eating habits. School-age children may experience a decline in academic performance, and have mood changes or physical complaints. Adolescents may become angry and act out, or withdraw and show signs of apathy.”
