For Immediate Release:
Granville Academy: Granville County Public Schools’ Flexible Learning Opportunity
The Granville County Public School (GCPS) system is exploring interest in a NEW choice for families: Granville Academy. Granville Academy is a program that would serve students in grades K-12 with flexible schedules and blended learning models. Blended learning utilizes online, blended, and face-to face instruction. Students would attend some days on campus and work some days at home. Learning options include: Blended Learning Elementary School (Grades K-5), Blended Learning Middle School (Grades 6-8) and a Flexible High School (Grades 9-12).
The purpose of Granville Academy is to offer students a world-class education in a flexible format and environment. Whether targeting a four-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career, students attending Granville Academy will be prepared to succeed.
Granville Academy is designed to provide students with choices and opportunities they may not have previously had through the traditional educational experience. Granville Academy will consist of high-quality courses presented in a different way using an environment with access to quality academics that leverage technology tools.
Dr. Vanessa Wrenn, Director of Instructional Technology explains, “Granville Academy students will still be learning the exact same state standards as any other student in a traditional school, but in a more personalized and flexible way. We’d be offering a new choice and new way to provide an education that meets the needs of the family and student. In addition, special supports would be in place to make sure students stay on track and meet targets along the way. We are redefining learning in a public school setting.”
The flexibility of this new choice in instruction would allow students more opportunities to pursue personal hobbies and interests. Also, students would still be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities and athletics while enrolled.
Granville Academy is looking forward to serving the various communities and helping students be successful in academics. GCPS is proud to investigate new choices and options to meet the needs of students and their families.
