About Continental Academy
Continental Academy has been serving the homeschooling community since 1996 as a private, non-religious school for grades 9-12. The Academy was established in response to the belief that the traditional classroom-based model for secondary education can be unsuitable for a significant, alienated and disenfranchised portion of the population—the alternative learners. This community of learners is best served by educational philosophies other than those of the conventional mainstream. Continental staff and teachers recognize that students maintain various learning styles, and that the alternative learner may have obstacles which interfere with their learning and, therefore, require flexibility in their academic program. Continental utilizes alternative instructional strategies and fashions educational programs to cater to students’ needs. Students who may have struggled in the conventional classroom may find a greater degree of success at Continental Academy
Students at Continental Academy determine pace their own progress to a high school diploma. Continental does not impose any specific program start dates, end dates, or deadlines, but rather works at each student’s pace. Within the first 30 days of enrollment, students can easily determine how long it will take to complete their academic program of choice, and Continental offers a 30 day money-back guarantee.
