Students at Colorado Preparatory Academy (CPA) kicked off the 2019-2020 school year on August 19, simply by turning on their computers. CPA is an online, tuition-free, public school at home option available to students statewide in grades K-12.
By combining innovative technology with a rigorous curriculum led by state-certified teachers, CPA offers a learning experience tailored to fit each student’s needs. Through live and recorded online sessions, students can access their education from any computer with an internet connection.
“The online learning environment opens up a world of opportunity for each one of our students,” said Nicole Tiley, Head of School at CPA. “We are excited to start a new year of helping our students achieve academic success, as they continue to discover a love of learning.”
Students in all grade levels take a full course load across the core subjects of English/language arts, math, science and history, as well as world languages, arts, music, and electives.
For those looking for an added academic challenge, eligible students in grades 9-12 may take college-level courses through CPA’s concurrent enrollment program. Eligible students can earn tuition-free college credits at partner higher education institutions throughout the state.
CPA’s dedicated teachers facilitate lessons during live, interactive online classes, and connect with students and families via phone, email, and one-on-one online discussions, building close partnerships in support of academic success. The online platform enables students to enjoy a safe learning environment while connecting with classmates and teachers across the state.
Throughout the school year, CPA builds a sense of community through in-person field trips and social outings. CPA also celebrates graduating seniors with an in-person commencement ceremony in the spring. Virtual clubs and student organizations allow students to further explore their interests and develop leadership skills together in the online setting.
