Compass Charter Schools
Compass Charter Schools (CCS) believes every scholar can be successful and understands and respects the need for scholars to learn at their own pace, using their own learning strengths. Our program is built to foster and develop scholars’ love of learning. CCS is committed to creating a collaborative virtual learning community, inspiring scholars to appreciate the ways in which arts and sciences nurture a curiosity for lifelong learning, and preparing scholars to take responsibility for their future successes.
We are proud of the quality program we provide. As we are a virtual school, many of our procedures take advantage of digital tools. For example, Learning Coach Lounges, scholar clubs, and communication are conducted virtually. For our scholar portfolios, we use an application that can be accessed on a phone, tablet, or computer. These digital tools allow us to enhance our scholars’ learning, as well as the relationships and communication we have with them and each other. While a virtual community is important to us, we also try to build in-person communities with a variety of enrichment events, workshops, and field trips.
