How Will You Personalize Your Education?

Every child is unique, and that’s why you deserve choices in your scholar’s education. With our different programs,
families have the ability to tailor their education to what works best for them.

Online Program

With this program, scholars enjoy a quality education from the comfort of their home or anywhere with a computer and internet connection. Our K–12th grade online education is coupled with an engaging curriculum and caring, dedicated teachers who conduct live online classes and provide personalized support whenever needed.

Project-Based Learning Program

Our 6th – 12th grade Project-Based Learning (PBL) program is our site based program in Berkeley where our experienced, credentialed teachers use engaging real-world challenges as the vehicle to promote scholar’s learning.  This type of critical-thinking learning helps develop a scholar’s ability to integrate and explain complex concepts and prepares them for college.

Meeting the teachers and staff and made us feel so much more connected, especially when we were back home behind the computer screen. We have been to museums in San Diego, beach clean up, the Carlsbad Flower Fields, science workshops, the Long Beach Aquarium, and we are looking forward to extracting DNA from strawberries this week with Mrs. Wood in Lake Elsinore, as well as learning about Meteorology and Stem Learning while enjoying a baseball game in San Diego in May.

I really loved this program and saw so much progress in Liz. She wouldn't have been able to excel in math if it wasn't for CCS. Thank you so much for all your hard work!
