Teacher and student

A Typical Day as a Greenways Student

A student come to Greenways Academy for 2-3 hours a day to work on their Math, Science, English and Social Studies. They do this in a one-to-one environment with a certified teacher. You would be amazed at how much curriculum can be covered in a personalized learning environment. Usually, tutoring blocks are 8AM – 10AM, 10AM – 1PM, 1PM – 3PM or some variation. You can pick a time that suits your sleep schedule and prime learning time.

After school, students work on their elective credits. These are very flexible. A student may choose to get a job (work study) or volunteer at a place that they feel passionate (service hours). The student may be an athlete and need those hours to train their sport. A student may want to explore dance, theater, or get an internship at a place of interest. We can transcript those hours as 90 clock hours= ½ credit. We can help families navigate this process if needed.

Students can come to CLS for a quarter, a semester, a year, or even finish their high school diploma.

We work with students who struggle in traditional schools due to:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Medical, Psychological & Addiction Diagnoses
  • Bullying & Toxic Social Environments
  • Training and Travel for Athletic, Artistic and Special Interests.
  • Unique Learning styles, Giftedness, Being Twice Exceptional & Many other scheduling and educational challenges.
  • Graduation Requirements
