Heart Prints Center Summer Camp Combines Fun Themes With S.T.E.A.M Education

 From fairy-tales, to dinosaurs, outer space and more, Heart Prints Center Summer Camps allow children to explore some of their favorite things. And because Heart Prints combines fun themes with S.T.E.A.M. education, camp also is jam-packed with learning. 

The foundation of the Heart Prints camp curriculum is S.T.E.A.M. — Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. To offer a true S.T.E.A.M. program, multiple disciplines must be integrated within an activity, said Heart Prints Assistant Director Julie Byrnes. Children explore, experiment and create in every single Heart Prints camp. Literacy is also part of the program.  [Read more…]

Back-to-School 2017

From abacuses and slates to iPads and SMART Boards, education has come a long way. With the report of driverless cars and robots that can do just about any task on the horizon, it’s apparent that we are living in an age of advanced technology. Indeed, the future promises even more innovations that will continue to revolutionize our lives. Today’s students need to be comfortable and adept at using technology, and the schools in our area have made it their mission to educate students to be ready for the world of tomorrow. Lest we create a “Brave New World,” educators also know that there needs to be a balance between technology and humanity. Fortunately, the schools in this Education Guide know that there is more to education than being proficient on a computer, they know that values, arts, athletics and social skills make for a well-rounded, well-education student.   [Read more…]

We Are CCA

Some families come to the realization that traditional schooling just isn’t working for their kid anymore.

Some students are blazing ahead of the lesson plan or need more flexibility in their school day.  Others have special needs that aren’t being met.

Whatever the reason, many families soon realize that a tuition-free, public cyber school like Commonwealth Charter Academy is a better option for their kids.

At CCA, students receive a customized education that meets their needs and focuses on their passions.  We know the importance of making friends at school, so we plan field trips and host clubs for kids to get out and socialize.

Find a better school for your kids!
