You Cannot Put a Price on a Thriving Student!

The need for personalized education is more critical than ever. At Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences (CMASAS), we are here for your family. We nurture the whole student. Our unparalleled team of experienced educators embrace students' individual learning preference and goals when developing their Personalized Education Plan (PEP).

CMASAS has spent decades creating content and curriculum with personalization in mind. Our methods for learning help students become independent, self-advocating, life-long learners. CMASAS graduates are prepared to pursue their dreams, and many go on to change our world for the better. There is a difference between going to school and being liberated to learn in a new way that supports one's goals. Personalized Education is not a buzz word at our school, it is our key differentiator that has kept our doors open, our faculty highly motivated, and our students thriving! 

Courses at CMASAS are mastery-based (80% and above) and self-paced. The self-paced nature of our program allows a student to move more quickly through a course or take additional time to fully understand a concept if needed. We also allow students opportunities to master the concepts by revisiting what they have learned.




Each full-time student in our online high school program is assigned a Personalized Education Coach (PEC) upon enrollment. PECs are educators who act as coaches, guides, and advocates. They are the primary point of contact for students and families at CMASAS, and they oversee each student's progress toward graduation. They also work with course instructors to provide a personalized approach to coursework. 

At the high school level, PECs focus on independence in the learning process. They work with students on transferrable skills like goal setting, time management, and study skills. They also focus on course planning and graduation requirements. They work with students to build a comprehensive plan that spans all four years of the high school experience. PECs and students build this plan together and consider both graduation requirements and future goals to ensure each student is well-equipped to achieve their postsecondary dreams.




Developed by students, parents or guardians, Personalized Education Coaches (PECs), Course Instructors (CIs), and school counselors, the Personalized Education Plan (PEP) encompasses academic and career aspirations, preferred learning styles, potential learning disabilities, and other factors influencing academic performance. 

The PEP includes specific goals, strategies, and accommodations, periodically reviewed to ensure relevance and effectiveness. This customized plan maximizes each student’s potential, providing tailored support for success. The plan may be reviewed and revised periodically to ensure that it remains relevant and effective. 

Students attend CMASAS for various reasons. While some pursue their career goals after graduation, many students choose to attend a four-year college or university. We have compiled a partial list of colleges attended by recent graduates.




High school students work with highly qualified subject matter experts for each course. Course instructors support students through increasingly rigorous courses to prepare students for postsecondary goals. They promote student growth through targeted instruction and emphasize higher-level learning that builds critical thinking skills. Most importantly, our high school course instructors provide a personalized experience for each student. They encourage students to incorporate their own interests and hobbies into coursework and emphasize a student-centered approach to lessons and assignments.




Our high school program provides rigorous core coursework that emphasizes critical thinking skills. We offer a wide variety of courses that meet core graduation requirements, so students have choice and flexibility even within required subjects. We also have an extensive list of engaging elective courses including visual and performing arts, career and technology education, and foreign languages. 

CMASAS offers Honors and AP courses for students who wish to pursue advanced coursework. Students can opt to participate in our college dual-enrollment program as well. This allows students to earn high school and college credits simultaneously. In addition, many of our high school core courses are NCAA-approved. 

Our learning model encourages a personalized approach. If a lesson or assignment is not working for your student, your PEC and Course Instructor will work with your student to find a way that does. That could mean a discussion instead of a written assignment or extra help and resources for a complex topic. It could even mean a personalized course to give students high school credit for work or hobbies they are pursuing in their free time. There are many ways students can learn and show us what they know.
