Cyber Academy of South Carolina (CASC), an online and blended public school, is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2020-2021 school year. CASC is available tuition-free to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who reside anywhere in the state.
At CASC, students have access to a robust curriculum and attend live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers. Students are offered a full course load in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music, as well as a host of electives including world languages. Teachers regularly communicate with students and their families via email, phone and during one-on-one meetings.
Through the school’s Destinations Career Academy, participating students can also pair a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like information technology (IT), business, and much more. Whether their path leads them directly into the workplace, to the military, or to higher education, career readiness provides students with the skills they need to get there.
“At CASC, we’re providing students with the resources they need to be successful in the 21st century workforce,” said CASC Head of School David Crook. “Our students have the unique opportunity to explore potential career fields and get a head start on their professional goals and aspirations.”
Many families and students choose CASC because it provides an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar education. Athletes, advanced learners, and students seeking a bullying-free environment can balance a full academic course load along with extracurricular pursuits or medical needs.
“I can’t imagine a different high school experience. The process has been great,” said CASC student Daniel Watson. “My teachers are actively involved in my education, but I have the freedom to take things at my own pace.”
Outside of the classroom, CASC offers online student clubs and in-person activities such as field trips, community service opportunities and social gatherings, including an annual graduation ceremony for seniors.
Students and families are encouraged to attend an online or in-person information session hosted by the school. More information on CASC, how to enroll, and a schedule of upcoming events can be found at casc.k12.com.
