WHO'S WHO AT SKAGIT ACADEMY

Skagit Academy (SA)- Onsite classes begin this week! We are a K-12 school that hosts several educational programs and sometimes it gets confusing, especially when you have students in different programs. The following is an explanation of each program:


Learning Center (LC K-8)- Classes begin September 8,9 & 13: Learning Center students participate in any combination of different classes: Thursday onsite core classes, onsite K-8 electives, and remote classes (determined by parent/guardian).


Synergy (SYN 5-8)- Classes begin Wednesday, September 8.: This NEW PROGRAM is an onsite integrated core program for LC 5-8 students. Student participate in all day onsite Wednesday classes, as well as available K-8 onsite electives, and may have remote classes as well (determined by parent/guardian).


Preparatory Academy (PREP 5/6)- Classes begin Wednesday, September 8: This for students in Grades 5 & 6 that are headed into the Academy 7-12 program. Students participate in PREP classes on half-day Monday and full-day Wednesday, as well as have the option to attend K-8 onsite electives that do not conflict with their PREP schedule.


Academy (AC 7-12)- Classes begin Tuesday, September 7: These middle/high school students attend onsite classes all day Tuesday and Friday. This can be confusing because 'The Academy' is a program hosted by Skagit Academy. Also, student in grades 7/8 can attend K-8 onsite electives that do not conflict with their AC schedule.
