How Online School Works at CalPac
CalPac takes the regular school day and creates the flexibility to do schoolwork in the way that best suits the needs of each individual. Students have weekly assigned deadlines, but can complete the work each school day at their own pace.
Students learn with the flexibility of online courses and curriculum, but the consistency of a traditional brick and mortar calendar. Students are expected to keep up with their school assignments, just like a traditional school program.
Each week, students have assignments that are accessible through the online platform--anytime a student has internet access, they have access to their entire course curriculum. There are no books or worksheets. Students can access the course content 24/7 and complete work throughout the week at their convenience.
Teachers are available to CalPac students during regular business hours. Each course has a weekly live session, which is held in real time, in our online virtual classroom. Teachers may take students on a virtual field trip, prepare for an upcoming test, or present a PowerPoint to enrich the material that the student is accessing online throughout the week in their course.
For extra help, students may sign up for online tutoring offered weekly by each teacher. Teachers are accessible by email, phone, and Instant Messaging. Homeroom teachers work with students and parents to keep students on pace, making sure they are completing work each week to stay on track.
Students who come to CalPac are self-motivated, independent educational learners. At CalPac, we celebrate diversity, and welcome all types of students. We have courses for all types of learners, and our students benefit from a personalized learning approach to their education.
CalPac students interact outside the classroom too. CalPac hosts online events, field trips, and even an annual (online!) talent show each year. Students have the opportunity to create their own clubs, sharing like interests with other students under the guidance and direction of a faculty advisor.
