Academic Statement

Students at CAA receive all academic education through an online platform to allow for maximum flexibility. CAA teachers serve as the students' learning coaches to help guide them through their virtual learning experience. Athletes are encouraged to use an online learning program that best serves their needs and is affiliated with their home state. Example schools we have worked with are K12, Connections Academy, Edmentum, PA Cyber, etc.

Please note CAA teachers are certified through the Ohio Department of Education.

Example Schools Ohio based Students Attend:

  • The K12 Private Academy - Paid, private option for all students (not state specific), using the K12 Curriculum. K12 Private is NCAA certified for HS Students.
  • The Ohio Virtual Academy - Free, public option for Ohio Students, using the K12 Curriculum. OHVA is NOT NCAA certified for HS Students but is an option for 7-8th grade students.
  • The Ohio Connections Academy - Free, public option for Ohio Students, using the Pearson Curriculum. OCA is NCAA certified for HS students.

Out of state students are encouraged to use the K12 Private Academy or their in-state online charter option. If the student is in high school, please ensure the curriculum being used is NCAA certified using the clearing house website. Questions can be sent to CAA staff for assistance in picking the right school as needed.

Academic Standards

Students are expected to come to the Academy with the understanding that the academic responsibility is on them. While our CAA teachers and coaches will provide mentorship and guidance, students must be willing to take on the independence to ensure their work is being completed to their best potential, in a timely manner. CAA teachers will have access to a student's online Learning Management System (LMS) to check on  grades, ensure students are progressing at a proper rate, and communication with teachers is professional and prompt. Failure to meet academic expectations could result in the following: Conferences being set up with parents and/or online teachers so an individualized program plan can be made, loss of ice or off-ice time, and dismissal from the Academy.

IEP and 504 Plans

Students who are on an IEP or 504 plan are welcome to attend the Academy. Teachers and Coaches must be made aware of any special services a student is receiving in order to best serve the student and provide needed academic support. Please note the Academy does NOT provide services to diagnose or assess students who may need special services; this must be done through the student's online school and/or home school district.
