At Our Sites

Content Coaches (teachers) and Special Education Coaches receive training and support for Edgenuity™, an online instructional platform that provides academic content. Therefore, little time is spent creating lesson plans, and Content Coaches can personalize our blended instructional model to fit each Graduation Candidate’s individualized learning pathway. Graduation Candidates have access to wrap around support systems, such as a Life Coach (Social Worker), Career Coach (Guidance Counselor), and multiple Graduation Candidate Advocates (Teaching Assistants) on site. These roles are critical for providing our Graduation Candidates with personalized career and college oriented pathways.
