I'm so grateful that Chartwell started an online program. The long day with the long commute was just too much for K. She would be anxious and not want to socialize by the time we made it home. The best part about the online program is with the increased focus her goals were able to be increased substantially for the year. I'm very impressed and excited with the progress she has been making online.

Chartwell’s Online Learning Program is an intimate, student-centered virtual educational setting where students learn through exploration and guided lessons covering all core classes.
Language Arts, Social-Emotional Academic Development (SEAD), Humanities, and Writing are taught as interdisciplinary courses, overlapping and connected for maximum engagement and understanding. During SEAD time, students work together to build foundational social skills and collaborative mindsets. Language Arts class seeks literary knowledge and concepts through novel studies at approachable reading levels. The Writing Revolution program is used to help students with fundamental writing skills in concurrence with Language Arts and Humanities. During humanities studies, students will find and explore connections with literature, current events, historical events, and culture. Participating in Art (Drawing, Painting, and Theater) or STEAM projects, students will engage with hands-on, creative lessons.
In classes of no more than three students, students will have spiraled, guided education in math skills at their level using curriculum, iXL, and error analysis. With various placement levels, students have Structured Literacy in micro-groups learning the fluency skills provided by the Wilson or PAF reading program.
Every Friday, students can engage in group activities online or be released for asynchronous clubs and activities in their area.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in a virtual physical fitness program.
