For students who want to get the most out of their high school years

Our unique online approach to dual enrollment provides students the flexibility they need

"When I grew up, only juniors and seniors could take dual enrollment courses.  Even then, it wasn't the norm and most students were just interested in finishing high school.  We weren't really thinking about the next steps just yet."

Enabled by online learning and in partnership with the award-winning College of the Canyons located in Santa Clarita, The Academy at Method Schools provides support and opportunity for students to enroll in college as early as freshman year.  Students maximize their high school years to explore career options through CTE pathways and prepare for transfer to four-year universities through completion of general education college requirements.

High School and College Combined Seamlessly

Our high school academics are powered by top-of-the-line credentialed and highly qualified teachers who use SmartFox, our proprietary standards mastery-based curriculum built for teachers by teachers. 

College courses are taught online by college instructors from the College of the Canyons.  The Academy's unique approach means students have a trusted guide from enrollment to graduation. Academy students are enrolled in a series of courses curated by Method Academic staff to ensure transfer eligibility.  Academy students are taught by college instructors who have a history of success with both online instruction AND working with high school-aged students.  College course enrollment is open only to Academy students, so there are no adult college students in any Academy course. In addition to the Academy's college coursework, students are enrolled in Method Schools' WASC-accredited,  a-g, and NCAA-approved courses to complete their high school diploma requirements.

In some public schools I have been to, out of the 6 hours of class time we would have 2 hours  working on work and the other 4 hours would be waiting. At Method, we get straight to the point and don't waste time. you can also work at your own speed. I do have a couple of people I have recommended to Method. Most of them have been interested.
