Compass Charter Schools’ Online Learning Program (Compass Online) is the Gold Standard in Virtual Education. Before the pandemic forced other schools online, Compass Online scholars thrived with our superb, well-established academics and caring, accredited teachers and staff. Compass Online scholars build a healthy camaraderie with classmates inside an intellectually rigorous environment that encourages talents and personality, helping our K-12 learners develop individual character and personal direction. Here are our top 10 reasons to attend Compass Online:
Leading The Way
1. We’ve Been Online for 10 Years, Making Us the Experts!
Compass Online has the vision – we’re proud of our high quality, modern education and online learning success over the past decade. Our commitment to academic achievement shows in our graduation rates and high rates of scholars continuing their education to post-secondary education.
2. Compass Online Teaches Live K-12
Our live synchronous K-12 sessions for every core subject, every week, make it easy for parents and scholars to rise through the entire educational experience in one school, virtually. If our scholars can’t make the live online session, it is recorded and made available whenever it fits the scholar’s schedule.
3. Quality Supportive Team
As a free personalized learning public charter school, we intentionally hire staff and allocate resources to elevate quality support for our scholars and learning coaches. Support shows up in forms of English Learning, Tutoring, Social and Emotional Learning, and Counseling. It’s through this Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) that Compass Online connects with our families and scholars as they find joy in their academic journey.
Collaboration and Encouragement for Every Scholar
4. Designated Purple Star Schools
Compass Charter Schools are the only Purple Star independent online schools in the state of California. All three Compass Online schools (San Diego, Los Angeles, and Yolo) are designated as Purple Star Schools, which means we serve the needs of military-connected families and scholars.
5. 100% Accredited Teachers.
Our teachers are talented in the subjects they teach and passionate about scholar success. Compass Online cultivates scholars above and beyond many parents’ expectations through our handpicked hiring process. Virtual learning for scholars with Special Academic Instruction (SAI) needs also benefit from highly skilled Special Education Instructors.
6.Gold Standard Engagement – Scholar-Led Clubs
Scholars learn essential social skills with scholar-led clubs within Compass Online. Our scholars enjoy field trips and enrichment activities as a great way to connect with each other, work together, and fine-tune communication and leadership skills. Our Engagement Department also facilitates hands-on learning and community service, enriching our Compass Online scholars beyond the tablet or laptop.
College and Career Readiness
7. One of Very Few AVID Program Schools
AVID or Advancement Via Individual Determination, is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The mission of the Compass Charter Schools (CCS) AVID program is to focus on providing access to a four-year college and career-readiness supports for scholars so that they are prepared for life after high school. With AVID as their tool, scholars, and families engage in courses that focus on college and career readiness topics and strategies.
8. Maintaining each Scholar Relationship is our Top Priority
The Counseling Department at Compass Online compassionately serves our K-12 scholars. Our counselors know each scholar by name and as an individual; because of our ongoing commitment to our low counselor-to-scholar ratio.
9. Preparing for Life After High School
Compass Online courses are A-G and NCAA aligned so our scholars track to exciting futures in their ongoing educational pursuits. Compass Online is forging a partnership with Snow College to ensure equitable access to college-level courses, furthering excellence for our virtual scholars.
