Great Lakes Cyber Academy offers a customized approach to education allowing teachers to tailor instruction to the individual needs and learning styles of each student. The school provides three flexible graduation pacing options throughout the full year (versus solely a traditional 10-month school calendar) Students can choose to learn in two or three sessions—fall, spring, and summer:
· Standard Pace: Students take full course loads in the traditional fall and spring sessions and take the summer off (most closely aligned to traditional public school with 10-month calendar).
· Extended Pace: Students take a lighter than usual course load in the fall and spring sessions, but also attend the summer session. This option provides students with more time for other activities, while still enabling them to complete a full workload over the course of the year.
· Accelerated Pace: Students attend all three sessions full time, enabling them to graduate early or take post-secondary dual enrollment courses.
