Cyber Academy Of South Carolina (CASC) Opens Statewide Enrollment For Students Entering Grades K Through 9

GREENVILLE, S.C., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Cyber Academy of South Carolina (CASC), a new full-time, tuition-free online public school option, announced that they are now enrolling students entering grades K through 9 for the 2013-2014 school year, with plans to add an additional three grade levels over the next three years. The Cyber Academy of South Carolina uses award-winning K¹² curriculum to offer students an exceptional learning experience and, with support from South Carolina-certified teachers, CASC provides the individualized attention and learning tools students need to succeed.

Students who enroll in CASC will receive an academic program which includes engaging web-based lessons that complement and expand upon traditional education methods. Books, videos, CDs and other hands-on tools and instructional materials are shipped directly to each student's home, providing kids with an interactive environment that makes learning both dynamic and fun. CASC offers courses in English/Language Arts, Math, Science, History, Music, and Art. A robust Advanced Learner Program is also available at CASC.

"CASC offers South Carolina families another education option that might allow their child to thrive in a more flexible learning environment," said David Crook, CASC Head of School. "Virtual education provides a method of advancing or slowing down a student's education based on their specific needs, without sacrificing any of the important social events that go along with this time in their life."

CASC students are encouraged to participate in a range of extracurricular activities, as well as a national network of 100+ clubs that cover a wide variety of interests like Lego, chess, Spanish, American Girls, photography, guitar, debate and flamenco dance.

Teachers at CASC provide instruction and support by regularly interacting with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. By working closely to help pace the curriculum to meet individual goals for advancement, teachers can adjust their lesson plans to the student, not the other way around. In addition, students are invited to participate in school outings, field trips, picnics and other social events throughout the year, making for a well-rounded experience.
