Learning can happen everywhere, not just in a classroom
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 12, 2007
The Cambridge Academy Inc. (http://www.TheCambridgeAcademy.org) announced the launch of its PreK-12 online homeschooling academy. The Cambridge Academy is a private cyber school that enables families to enroll in courses through the internet. The Cambridge Academy's advanced multimedia curriculum is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week, and provides professional teacher assistance on weekdays. Maribel Markins hopes that a service like this will spread awareness that public school isn't the only option.
"Learning can happen everywhere, not just in a classroom," says Maribel Markins. "The Cambridge Academy's students will be equipped to think creatively in every setting. It is a place where accelerated learners and those who need extra help from our teachers can learn and grow according to their unique learning style."
The homeschooling movement grew out of a desire to escape the lack of values and poor academic quality of the public school. Homeschoolers cite a wide variety of reasons for leaving such as bullying, peer pressure, irresponsible teachers, an overall lack of family values, and the growing threat of school violence. Public cyber-charter schools were developed to bring homeschoolers back into the fold. Maribel Markins is quick to point out that The Cambridge Academy is not a public charter school program.
"Charter schools still use the same poor-quality curriculum, outdated learning methods, and unnecessary red-tape that can be found in public schools. The Cambridge Academy is a private alternative for parents who wish to provide their children with something better," says Maribel Markins. "We understand that there are a lot of parents out there who would love to enroll their children in a prestigious private school, but are unable to afford the high cost of tuition. The Cambridge Academy is a perfect solution because we are able to offer a quality academic experience while keeping tuition at an affordable level. Essentially, we are bringing private school to the masses."
