During the pandemic of COVID-19, most schools are closed. Governments of several countries have allowed schools to teach online. California Prep International School (CPIS) is one of the many schools that have opened to offer classes online. CPIS is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and by Office for National Education Standards and Quality Assessment (ONESQA). CPIS Online Program offers G1-G12.
Online learning is accessible to anyone who has a computer, tablet or smartphone.
Students can take part in the online school from any location where they can get an internet connectivity.
Students can learn from the comfort of their home. It means that there are no travel costs in online learning.
Going to school can be daunting for many teens. Peer pressure and social drama can be overwhelming. When teens feel anxious about going to school, the quality of their learning can be compromised
The tools and resources that can be offered from within an online classroom have been proven to be effective. Presenting teaching materials in this way allows students to have greater control over how and when they access them. This implies that they can take full control of their own learning experience and increase their likelihood of success.
CPIS Online is for Grade 6 to Grade 12 students who are passionate about life and learning with positive perspective in life. Grade 1 to Grade 5 are also offered but only for highly screened students with high parent's commitment.
