Cyber Academy of South Carolina (CASC), an online public school, will celebrate the Class of 2021 during commencement ceremonies on Saturday, June 5th.
Available to students in grades K-12 across the state, CASC offers innovative learning platforms, a robust curriculum, and live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers.
Collectively, the Class of 2021 reports it has been accepted to trade schools, colleges, and universities throughout the country including many across South Carolina.
“Our graduating students from all walks of life have had the amazing opportunity to learn in a supportive, online environment,” said CASC Head of School David Crook. “I have no doubt that the skills they’ve honed at CASC have put them on the path to college and career success.”
Through the school’s Stride Career Prep program, some CASC graduates have paired a solid academic foundation with hands-on learning experiences in growing career fields like health and human services, information technology (IT), and much more. Seventy-three percent of CASC seniors are graduating with a certified career-ready indicator. These include: industry-standard certifications, work-study, internship, or job shadow opportunities. Roughly 17 percent are graduating one year early.
“The faculty and staff at CASC feel so honored to have played a role in the development and education of each student graduating this year. We have truly enjoyed working closely with each graduate and having the opportunity to support them in reaching goals and preparing for life after high school,” said CASC High School Principal Nicki Batson. “We look forward to seeing all they accomplish and the many ways they impact the world they are entering.”
Students enroll in CASC for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some have health concerns, many wish to accelerate their learning through advanced courses unavailable at their traditional school, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting to find success. CASC students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music as well as a host of electives. Live virtual classes taught by state-licensed teachers provide not only an engaging environment but give students the opportunity to learn with their peers in an online platform.
