4 The CCA Program CCA is a fully accredited public cyber charter school that serves families and children in grades K-12. CCA works with families to create a more personalized curriculum geared toward helping learners succeed in school, and in life. The program combines great Pennsylvaniacertified teachers and the best resources from leading educational publishers and curriculum specialists to deliver a comprehensive, high-quality K 12 education. Learners, family members and teachers work together to tailor a curriculum centered around each learner s unique needs and interests. The Family Centered Approach Learners flourish when families and CCA teachers come together in a strong partnership. Everyone has a role: children explore their academic passions, teachers customize lessons and encourage learners, and family members act as learning coaches by supporting, motivating and monitoring their child s progress.

6 Thinking Differently About Education Learning is different from studying. For that reason, CCA children are called learners instead of students. CCA s mission is to deliver a personalized learning experience that engages the entire family and prepares learners to succeed. A CCA education helps prepare learners for a lifetime of achievement. Graduates may go on to college, technical training, the military or directly into the workforce. Learners gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to become productive, responsible members of their communities as adults. Through our family service model, CCA learners should enjoy success in school, land great jobs in their field of choice and give back to the communities in which they live, work and play. The goal is for learners to become the leaders of tomorrow and contribute to society s betterment. CCA s Model Means Great Flexibility At CCA, families can customize a school day that maximizes a learner s potential. An education should not be limited to a physical structure between the traditional hours of 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. CCA learners attend classes virtually using the latest tools and technology. All teachers are highly qualified and Pennsylvania certified. Lessons are presented in real-time, live and in person, to meet the unique needs of each family. Family members serve as learning coaches and are encouraged to collaborate closely with teachers, who are available every weekday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CCA families have great flexibility in scheduling. Learners can fulfill class requirements around their daily schedule. 5 ccaeducate.me

9 Personalized Education At CCA, learners, family members and teachers work together to personalize the education by designing a tailored curriculum centered on the child s unique needs and interests. Through the many opportunities available at CCA, learners can structure a curriculum that sparks a passion for knowledge and growth. Learners can design a program with a wide range of electives and bring out their passion through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Arts and Humanities conservatories and internships. With a personalized family service approach, CCA learners thrive and are better prepared for success after graduation. (toll-free)

10 Proven Curriculum & Resources At CCA, curriculum experts review and select the best texts and teaching materials from leading publishers to create engaging units, lessons and activities.

15 Teachers as Partners & Instructional Leaders Many learners and families say they form a stronger, more personalized relationship with their CCA teachers than in their previous school. CCA teachers have a servant s heart and focus on what matters for each family. This fundamental core belief leads to a very high parent satisfaction rate. CCA teachers are motivated by the chance to work with children and want to help prepare them for success. Maybe that s why 97 percent of parents say they are satisfied with the helpfulness of CCA teachers. All CCA teachers are certified and specially trained in virtual teaching. (toll-free)

16 CCA teachers are talented, enthusiastic professionals who care about children and want to help prepare them for success. CCA teachers are motivated by the chance to work with learners in a one-on-one setting, with a personalized curriculum that inspires a passion for knowledge. Teachers take the time to get to know the skills, interests and learning styles of each child. This helps learners excel in areas of strength and grow academically where they need assistance. CCA makes it easy for learners and parents to reach their teachers by phone, virtually or in person for the personalized support in areas where learners need assistance. 15 ccaeducate.me

17 Tremendous Technology CCA learners can go to school from anywhere, at any time, through easyto-use technology. A comprehensive learning management system makes communicating with teachers and checking on grades simple for families. CCA also has a structure in place for ongoing technical support, guidance and even parent mentors to help every family be successful. Upon enrollment, CCA provides learners with everything needed to get started from technology to all textbooks and materials. (toll-free)

18 Opportunities for Socialization and Participation Throughout the school year, CCA provides many opportunities for peer-to-peer interaction. First, collaboration occurs in the virtual classes themselves. Classes give learners the chance to share ideas and common experiences and to have fun with other families from across Pennsylvania. CCA is proud to offer eight regional Family Service Centers to provide learners access to extra help and great hands-on activities throughout the school year. Also, families can stop by for in-person help with enrollment, meetings with administrators and guidance counselors, or to use any of our extensive services. Regional Family Involvement Coordinators around the state schedule more than 500 exciting and educational field trips from across Pennsylvania. These field trips are offered regionally to assure that learners have access to opportunities all over Pennsylvania. This allows learners to meet in person and get to know each other beyond the virtual classroom. 17 ccaeducate.me

19 CCA learners have the chance to share ideas, common experiences and have fun together. CCA learners can take advantage of dozens of clubs and activities. From a Lego Robotics Club to regional adventure clubs, learners have the opportunity to socialize with their classmates, explore and try something new. Conservatories bring learners together for an in-depth immersion into their interest areas. Currently, CCA offers a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Conservatory and an Arts and Humanities Conservatory. These unique programs provide group experiences around the state and work with individual juniors and seniors to provide personalized internships. (toll-free)

20 Proven Student Success CCA has a great track record with learners. In addition to the excellent teaching, CCA counselors guide learners through the college selection and admission process by focusing on authentic college and career readiness. CCA learners have been accepted into two-year colleges, trade and technical schools, the military, the workforce and four-year universities. 19 ccaeducate.me
