CGUHSD Online Academy

Students will participate in high-level learning they are used to in-person, but in a structured online environment using Edgenuity courseware. This online self-guided format provides students instruction through embedded videos in the courseware. Teachers, Learning Success Coaches, and online Concept Coaching are available to assist students to successfully complete their courses. The Edgenuity curriculum is grounded in research and is aligned to Arizona State Standards.   
Please note, elements of our plan may be subject to change based on current information and guidance from the Federal/State government and health agency partners. We will continue to share relevant updates with our community.   
The goal of CGUHSD is for all our students to be successful. Part of that success will depend on the model of learning your family chooses this semester. Please consider the characteristics of a successful online learner before selecting the online model of learning.
