For the coming 2022-2023 school year, Pioneer Academy 1-12 will offer a flexible school schedule through its full-time online educational programs. Juniors or seniors, 11th and 12th graders, who may need more flexibility due to work or other reasons, may enroll in full-time online education.

Pioneer Academy 1-12 is a consortium of three schools. Pioneer Online Elementary School serves grades one through five, Pioneer Online Middle School serves grades six through eight and Pioneer High School, which is already a fully accredited high school serving grades nine through twelve in traditional in-seat, hybrid (in-seat and online) and full-time online learning options.

All families interested in full-time online learning must complete an application for acceptance into Pioneer Academy 1-12. Pioneer Academy 1-12 has a limited number of spaces available for all three levels (elementary, middle, and high). As a result of this limited space, CCSD is asking all interested families to complete and submit applications in English or applications in Spanish. Student meeting minimum qualifications will be accepted until the program meets capacity.

The full-time online learning model offered through Pioneer Academy is a 5-days per week commitment. School days and hours will mirror that of those students who are learning full-time, 5-days per week, in-seat, in-person. All testing and assessments for full-time online learners will be provided in-person at the Pioneer Academy 1-12 campus.

Once enrolled, Pioneer Academy 1-12 will be the student’s assigned school for the year. In order for students enrolled in the full-time online learning model to return to the district’s in-seat, in-person learning model, families will need to apply for a variance to their assigned/zoned brick and mortar school.

Due to the unique challenges of online learning, CCSD has determined students and families will be best served under one consolidated location with teachers and staff who can focus efforts on the needs of full-time online families. Since Pioneer Academy 1-12 serves all full-time online learners, parents will have a single point of contact regardless of their children’s current grade levels. In addition, the consolidated site provides a unified teaching staff for online learning, as well as a single administrative staff and office staff.
