Georgia Charter School Taps Blended Learning Provider for Curriculum, Virtual Instructional Services

Atlanta's Graduation Achievement Charter High School (GACHS) will deploy curriculum from a provider of blended learning tools for more than 2,000 students.

The virtual public charter school aims "to provide historically underserved students with a flexible and highly individualized virtual school experience," according to a news release.

The school settled on curriculum from Edgenuity, which will also be providing instructional services offered by state-certified virtual instructors.

In addition to instructors and curriculum, the company will provide real-time progress and performance data, concept coaches for on-demand tutoring, success coaches for counseling of fully online students and an on-site mentor.

"As a virtual school, GACHS prides itself on identifying and offering top-quality online curriculum and instruction to our students," said Monica Henson, superintendent and CEO at GACHS, in a prepared statement. "Edgenuity was the perfect fit for GACHS because its Instructional Services offering provides best-in-class online instruction, remediation and motivation, ensuring that our unique student body will receive the personalized help they need, when they need it."
