Our active, supportive school community, which organizes fun and informative monthly activities where Agora parents, students, and staff share their successes, helpful hints, and more.The high-quality, tuition-free public education that enables a learning experience that is individualized for each child. Agora Cyber Charter School uses curriculum and services provided by K¹². Learning can happen at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection can be found. While attendance, teacher interaction, and daily lessons are conducted online, our lessons use physical materials and offline tools as well. For high school, Agora uses the K¹² high school program from K¹². Whether targeting a top-tier, four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career, Agora prepares students to maximize their post-high school success through K¹² high school.K-8 Program High School Program State-certified Teachers, Superior Teaching Tools At the Agora Cyber Charter School, all students interact with one or more state-certified teachers (depending on the grade level) and communicate regularly with their teachers through e-mail, telephone, and online meetings. Each Agora family receives a loaner computer and subsidized Internet access, as well as boxes of materials, including a wide array of textbooks, CDs, videos, and other hands-on tools and resources. These materials complement the interactive online elements of our program, ensuring that students receive instruction using the best method for each subject matter.Extensive School Support System Agora also provides an extensive support system to both parents and students. In grades K–8, working closely with the teacher, the parent (or other responsible adult) serves as a "Learning Coach" to the child, helping to facilitate his or her progress and working to modify the pace and schedule as needed. At the high school level the adult is less involved, as students work at more of a collective pace with a class of students in conjunction with the teacher. Each teacher is state certified and trained in his or her specific subject area.In addition, Family Teacher Coaches help families navigate their day-to-day responsibilities as online learners, and to help create strong local Agora communities throughout the state. Monthly networking opportunities are also provided through various events and outings, enabling the entire school community to keep in close contact. Individualized Learning, Public School Accountability In addition to providing individualized learning, as an online public school, Agora provides the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and state testing required of all public schools.Agora Cyber Charter School uses the individualized curriculum from K¹², which is based on decades of education research about how minds really work. With courses in six core subjects, it was designed to let K-8 kids find the pace and learning style that works best for them and to enable high school students to find their own path to post-high school success. The curriculum is wrapped with rich, engaging content that turns minds on. The minds that usually wander when traditional classes are too slow. The minds that get lost in the shuffle. The minds that need a little more time. Because at Agora, we believe that all children deserve to learn without limits.K-8 Curriculum High School Curriculum Each month, Agora staff, students, and parents gather together locally to celebrate successes, plan for the future, share tips and advice, and have fun.
