CCS Connects: Learning Beyond Our Walls
We are excited about expanding our course offerings
partnering with Sevenstar Academy and Lincoln Interactive for online
Online options will not replace traditional classroom instruction. We believe that the optimal environment for learning is within a community that promotes interpersonal relationships and engagement with others. However, circumstances do arise when students could benefit from the flexibility and diversity of online learning opportunities.
All online courses are subject to the approval of the CCS administration. As a rule, courses may not be taken in place of courses currently offered at CCS.
Online learning opportunities at CCS are made possible by partnering with two established online providers:
Sevenstar Academy, our primary partner, offers
Christian curriculum and teaching that complements our mission as a
Christian organization. Sevenstar Academy has demonstrated a
commitment to providing the
strongest possible curriculum for students. Their courses meet the
highest levels of education and require critical thinking, analysis, and
synthesis. Sevenstar Academy is accredited by the National Private
School Accreditation Alliance.
Lincoln Interactive partners with a variety of schools including PA Cyber School to provide online courses. They are not a Christian organization but their curriculum is carefully crafted by experienced educators to meet national standards. All instructors are PA certified. They provide options that are not currently available through Sevenstar Academy.
The online delivery of these courses will offer flexibility in scheduling. Students will be able to designate one of their free periods for their online course and will complete their course work at a CCS computer during the school day. Students should be aware that online courses will also require work outside of the school day using the student’s home computer. Students may choose to bring their own laptop with approval from the school.
Each student will be assigned an Online Course Advisor from the CCS faculty. The advisor will give oversight to the student’s progress and give direction to the online process.
Both online partners provide resources for student support such as instructor office hours, email accessibility and opportunities for interaction with the instructor.
