Greenways Academy; an exceptional
At Greenways Academy, we don't simply provide online classes. We provide the teachers, and transcript the classes. Students can enroll part-time or full-time. Our flexible asynchronous programs allow students to work from anywhere, anytime and are for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. To learn more about how our online school program works, please visit our How It Works page.
One Class or Full-Time
Whether you're interested in a single class to complete prerequisite courses or meet requirements for graduation, credit recovery, or you're interested in receiving a Greenways Academy diploma, we're here for you. We also offer a wide range of college prep, honors, AP, and world language courses that students can take online. We offer NCAA approved courses in our Learning Center environment and University of California, A-G approved classes.
Our Curriculum & Personalized Learning
Greenways Academy is an Cognia and WASC accredited online school. The unique thing about the Curriculum offerings from Greenways Academy is that we offer curricula from multiple providers including Edmentum, Apex, Rosetta Stone, and Florida Virtual. This allows us to stay current with the latest curriculum developments. Multiple providers also allows for flexibility in learning styles. We offer AP and Honors classes for students who want the added rigor. Our student-teacher ratio if one-to-one. This enables us customize the curriculum where needed to meet each student's individual learning needs. We customize curriculum to meet the needs of students with 504 or IEP's. As well, we work with students who's schedules don't fit within the limitations of a traditional brick-and-mortar school. Students work at their own pace in our asynchronous classrooms.
Greenways Academy has partnered with Arizona State University to offer Dual Enrollment classes to our High-School students.
Juniors and Seniors (11th & 12th Grades) can choose to develop a project and portfolio in any of the following areas. Certificates of completion at each level are presented to students annually.
A "Certificate of Specialization" for any and all completed paths will be awarded. (Note: The completion of a specialization will meet the Oregon Diploma Requirements for the Extended Application and the Career Related Learning Skills.) Learn more about this by viewing our Specialization Handbook.
All Greenways Academy courses are available for Summer School. As with all of our courses, we provide the teachers, grading and transcript at course completion.
Greenways Academy Differentiators
Our Houses are weekly advisory meetings that teach soft-skills. At Greenways Academy we believe that life is education and education should make life better, easier and more fun! That is why we include a series of life-skills in our House content. The Houses provide the "out-of-class" learning areas for our students. We work as a team of learners to learn new skills, try new things and embark on great adventures. We are more resilient, more willing to try, more successful when we work together!
Together we learn. Together we explore. Together ideas become reality.
We offer the House-of-Atlas for our K-5 students; the House-of-the-Griffin for grades 6-8 and House-of-the-Dragon for grades 9-12.
Soft-Skills for Life and Employment
Employers have made it clear that they can teach an employee anything, but they cannot teach integrity. Businesses are looking for "executive functioning" and would rather hire someone they can trust to come to work every day and do their best. That is why we explicitly discuss attendance, work ethic, attention to detail, and other "soft skills" that will give them a leg up in the work force or career of their choice.
Identifying our own needs and addressing stress in our lives is difficult for adults, much less children, pre-teens and teenagers. We help students name and address their areas of stress or anxiety and give them simple strategies to address most issues. If there are areas of greater need, we have wellness services available to students and families.
Money is a tricky thing to manage, especially for young people who don't have a foundation from which to reflect on their choices. We have age-appropriate activities to teach kids about money, the value, and how to budget and plan for the future. Whether it is understanding how much they spend, opening a savings account, or budgeting for the future, they need information. We help by providing the concepts and challenging students to learn to manage their money before they get out in the "real world".
We have identified age-appropriate activities in the home that every child, pre-teen, and youth should know and be able to do in order to be self-sufficient in the future. From sewing a button to organizing their personal files to meal planning, to changing a tire. Students will be given demos and offered the opportunity to earn "badges" as they demonstrate the activities (under adult supervision when needed) and work their way through the categories.
Know yourself, understanding others and communication skills are vital to developing healthy relationships and build self-image and self-esteem. In this area we teach students how to identify core issues, and resolve problems as they develop strong interpersonal abilities that will serve them well in every area of their lives.
