High School Program Overview

One of the unique features of the Compass Academic Program is the freedom with which students may approach traditional grade level work. Our program has a set of required courses that are recommended per the course of study in the California state curriculum—for primary, middle, and high school—pursuant to a High School diploma and for college preparation. But at Compass, we see schooling a little differently. Though it is the case that all students need to have explored the traditional core subject courses, we believe it is important for them to also begin exploring all sorts of interests. Thus, our middle and high school programs include “passion pathways” that allow students latitude to think about areas of study that might be associated with possible career pathways.

High School Sample Schedule

Our Compass Academic Program blends face-to-face instruction with structured independent work. Students have 50 minutes of live instruction in each of their core subjects three times per week and each of their elective subjects twice a week. Each class meets in a 1-on-1 teacher/student format so every course is customized around each student's learning needs. High school students are expected to complete assignments and homework independently in addition to their live instruction, and have constant access to their teachers via the school’s messaging system and during weekly office hours.
