At the Christa McAuliffe Academy, we understand that not all students have the same long-term educational goals. We see students as unique individuals, encouraging them to pursue their passions, interests, and goals. For those who are enrolled in our virtual high school program and are interested in applying to highly-competitive colleges or universities, CMASAS offers Honors and AP courses. We also offer a dual-enrollment opportunity. This allows students to earn high school and college credits simultaneously. Our high school program offers a variety of core and elective courses for students to choose from. Our online high school program is regionally accredited. In addition, many of our high school core courses are NCAA-approved.
Courses are mastery-based (80% and above) and self-paced. This self-paced nature of our program allows a student to move more quickly through a course or take additional time to fully understanding a concept if needed. We also allow students opportunities to master the concepts by revisiting what they have learned so that they earn at least an 80% in the course.
Most of our curriculum is created in house by our team of developers. We are able to personalize courses to suit a student's learning style. If a student wants to go above and beyond what's required of them, we offer a variety of honors and AP level courses for them to take. Watch this video to see the differences between the two styles of courses. There are no extra charges to take honors courses if you are enrolled in the gold or platinum tuition plans.
At CMASAS, we value student and parent feedback. Through a student recommendation, CMASAS started a National Honor Society chapter in 2017.
National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most-prestigious student recognition program. All members must demonstrate
To join, students must provide documentation of these four qualities. We believe many CMASAS students demonstrate these qualities, and we are honored to have our students to be recognized as outstanding individuals.
Our NHS Induction Ceremony will be on Friday, January 5th, 2020. Everyone is welcome to attend this event! This is a great way to meet fellow CMASAS students and staff members.
Seating and food during the NHS induction ceremony is reserved for those you have purchased an event ticket. Otherwise, you are welcome to attend and bring your own seating/food arrangements. Visit our graduation weekend page for more details.
