About Wolf Creek Online High School

Wolf Creek Distance Learning Charter School #4095 is a tuition-free public charter school sponsored by Chisago Lakes School District #2144. The school is based on a “small community” philosophy. Students are lead by one individual who helps them in academic, as well as non-academic, areas of their lives. This caring individual is called a Learning Manager and is the center of the school model. The Learning Manager coordinates the learning by assigning various learning modules, readings, projects, and activities. Communication with the student and family occurs mainly through e-mail or the telephone. Wolf Creek requires ongoing communication between the student and the Learning Manager.

Wolf Creek curriculum is available 24/7 over the internet, and students have the option to work on campus each week. It is recommended that students spend a minimum 25 hours a week on class assignments and five hours per week on campus. This time on campus should include individual and group projects, technology workshops, testing, concurrent class time, and goal planning sessions. Some students choose to come to campus, while other students successfully complete all coursework through distance learning.

Academic progress is reported to the parent and student at weekly intervals. Parents/guardians can also check on progress through online grading grids. Students who are not independently motivated and conscientious about their work can fall behind and not receive credit due to lack of work completion. A student will earn a diploma when the credit requirements for graduation have been met.
