At The Cottonwood School, we focus on Personalized Learning, a philosophy that truly puts every student first by supporting them in honoring and exploring their unique skills, special gifts, talents, and aspirations. Families and their teachers carefully select educational products, such as curriculum, technology items, supplemental enrichment materials, and field trip opportunities, as well as services, such as enrichment lessons and classes to fit their goals. Orders are approved by teachers and must be secular.
Personalized Learning occurs as a result of mutual respect between the parent who homeschools and a caring, supportive credentialed teacher. Every student is allocated a budget of instructional funds that can be spent on the student’s specific learning needs, under the approval of their teacher. Instructional funds are paid directly to curriculum vendors and service providers.
These funds can be used to navigate an authentic and dynamic personalized learning pathway by paying for computers, high-quality curriculum, tutoring, and enrichment activities.
