At Athlos Academy of St. Cloud, we understand that each family must make the schooling decision that is right for their family. As we considered our back-to-learning plans, we wanted to offer as many safe, consistent, and convenient quality learning options for families. That’s why we are offering two unique learning avenues for families to choose from: On-Campus and Distance Learning through Athlos Virtual Academy. We’re here to help families make the best possible decisions this school year for their individual needs.
Athlos Academy is a K-8, tuition-free, public charter school in St. Cloud, Minnesota. We are offering on-campus learning to anyone in the areas surrounding St. Cloud, and distance learning opportunities to any student living in the state of Minnesota. Here’s a look at our programs.
Athlos is offering full-time, five-day-school-weeks to support student learning and help families manage their already hectic schedules. We’ve taken every precaution to assure our school fosters a safe and engaging on-campus experience by working with local and national health departments and developing and implementing robust school opening procedures and plans.
We’ve put together a family-friendly version of our start-of-school plans. Here, you can find information specific to on-campus learning.
We’ve also put together resources for families to help their children with the transition to on-campus learning. One example is our resource 7 Tips to Help Students Start School During COVID-19.
A highlight from this resource is teaching kids the big 4: stay two arm’s length from others, wear a face covering, stay home if sick, and wash hands often.
Children are far more likely to wear something they think is cool, colorful, and fun! A quick Google search will pull up many homemade face covering patterns; here are a few fun ideas making creative face coverings:
This program includes live Zoom classes, pre-recorded lessons, and opportunities to engage with peers through Athlos programs like our Athletic Movement Classes and Classroom Huddles – all from the safety of home! Athlos Virtual Academy is adapted from Athlos’s on-campus, innovative education model.
Our distance learning program not only offers a high-quality, easy to follow curriculum and learning environment, but also gives student the interaction with their peers that they need. We also have accommodations for students who need extra support or an extra challenge. Our virtual students have access to everything a student learning on campus would, including technology and breakfast and lunch!
What’s best, is we know parents want consistency and normalcy this school year. Our Athlos Virtual Academy student have the option to participate in our program from a distance all school year! They also will have the option, if current COVID-19 conditions remain the same, to return to campus at the change of the semester. That means you can keep learning from home until summer, if you so choose.
Our comprehensive distance learning program is also now an opportunity to any K-8 student living in the state of Minnesota. That’s right, anyone in the state of Minnesota can apply.
“Love the amazing effort the teachers are putting into creating creative content for the kids to continue to learn despite not being in the building. We also love the Zoom class sessions with their teachers. They still get to see their classmates and have the teaching time with their teachers.”
