A typical day as a Greenways Student


A student come to Greenways Academy for 2-3 hours a day to work on their Math, Science, English and Social Studies.  They do this in a one-to-one environment with a certified teacher.   You would be amazed at how much curriculum can be covered in a personalized learning environment.

Usually, tutoring blocks are 8-10a.m., 10-1p.m.,
1-3p.m. or some variation. You can pick a time that suits your sleep schedule and prime learning time.


After school, students work on their elective credits.  These are very flexible. A student may choose to get a job (work study) or volunteer at a place that they feel passionate (service hours).  The student may be an athlete and need those hours to train their sport. A student may want to explore dance, theater, or get an internship at a place of interest.  We can transcript those hours as 90 clock hours= ½ credit.  We can help families navigate this process if needed.

Students can come to CLS for a quarter, a semester, a year, or even finish their high school diploma.


Greenways Academy is an accredited school that offers a high school diploma for successful completion of curriculum and required credits.
