Trying to manage career goals as an actor in Hollywood can be quite a daunting task.
Many adult actors end up walking away because of that. When the actor is a child, the challenge can be even more overwhelming. Keeping up with the continuous acting, dancing, and voice training, plus the last-minute auditions and film shoots, leaves little time for these child actors to complete homework and maintain a consistent school schedule.
Imagine trying to leave the house at seven in the morning, participate in extracurricular activities, complete homework, study, and spend time with your family, all while trying to fit in time for auditions, filming, or acting classes. This is understandably a daunting schedule. Scholars who are professional actors need to be given more flexibility to accommodate the extra time constraints that participating in commercials, films, etc., affords. Luckily for them, there are now more educational options to support them.
The dedicated staff of Compass Charter Schools (Compass) is sensitive to the needs of child actors. We understand their desire for flexibility and a quality personalized learning experience and are proud to offer our Compass Experience to meet their unique needs. Both our Online and Options home study Programs provide the flexibility that families desire while maintaining the academic consistency they need. In addition, our counseling team is available to help provide even more support to help the scholar succeed. Compass also offers various field trips, enrichment activities, and clubs for scholars that seek additional enrichment experience.
Our Online Program offers a virtual education with caring, dedicated teachers who provide weekly live online classes. In addition, teachers provide a weekly Q&A session to offer added support when scholars need more help with their work. High school courses are supported by subject-specific credentialed teachers, just as you would find in a brick-and-mortar school. Our teachers truly want to see each scholar succeed.
Our Options Program (Home Study) is for the parent looking to be the primary instructor for the scholar. We provide instructional funds, school support staff, and a team of supervising teachers (STs) ready to provide academic guidance, support, and encouragement as scholars experience school at home. Compass provides families with $3,000 in allocated instructional funds for K-8 scholars and $3,300 for scholars in grades 9-12. These allocated funds are for use with our approved vendors. Our team of STs support and guide the scholar and learning coach/parent as they partner with families on the scholar’s educational journey.
Compass Charter Schools is proud to be able to support young actors as they work hard to balance their educational and acting careers.
