YCS TK-8 Online Program creates a diverse, interactive online learning environment which isn’t confined to a one-size-fits-all classroom model prominent in traditional school settings. Our students develop the independent study skills that will benefit them throughout their academic careers. We provide a strong support network while providing a flexible learning environment.
We believe students will become productive citizens when they are challenged and mentored in leadership, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. Our student-centered education includes the following:
- Students are aware of what they are expected to learn, know what they have learned, and can identify what they still need to learn.
- Students are aware of their individual interests and talents, and they know how to seek out opportunities to work on relevant projects and curriculum that interests them.
- The staff seeks to continually improve and expand their knowledge of teaching practices, curriculum, and innovative technology.
- The school community embraces the diversity of the school population by fostering a school culture of safety, acceptance, and respect.
