Monday’s Jr High

Thursday’s Jr High

We are excited to announce a few changes at CGA.  

We are excited to announce two new opportunities for the 2019–20 school year. First, Williamsburg Learning will now offer some courses in-person on CGA’s campus! Until now, The Williamsburg Curriculum has only been offered to CGA students remotely—either live-online, in self-paced format, or through independent studies. Now, we’re offering an in-person experience in which students meet with Williamsburg mentors on CGA’s campus one day a week for onsite instruction in STEM, leadership, and electives.

Second, we have a new alliance with Leadership Academy of Utah (LAU) that will allow 9th–12th grade students who enroll in LAU to continue receiving instruction at our CGA Pleasant Grove campus. LAU has agreed to use our facility for their 9th–12th grade onsite program in the Pleasant Grove region. If you have 9th–12th graders, you can learn about the LAU program HERE.

Here’s what you need to know about the new onsite program offered by Williamsburg Learning.

Students who participate in this program will meet on the CGA campus one day a week, either Tuesday or Thursday, from 9:00 am to 3:15 pm, for in-person instruction from Williamsburg Learning mentors. During the course of the day, students will receive instruction in STEM, Leadership, and elective courses, and will participate in a “Study Hour” in which they receive 1:1 support. All of these courses collectively are called the “In-person Block.”

On what day will in-person courses be held at CGA?

On Tuesdays, WL will offer an in-person block at CGA for grades 6–8.

On Thursdays, WL will offer another in-person block at CGA for grades 6–8. On Thursdays, WL will also offer an in-person block for students at Leadership Academy of Utah (LAU) in grades 9 and 10. So families with students in grades 6–8 and 9–10 should enroll in the Thursday block if they want all children to travel together on the same day.

Students in grades 11-12 can also participate if they have not yet completed the courses LAU is offering in-person for 10th and 11th graders.

Which courses will be offered in-person for fall 2019?

For each grade level, all in-person courses will be offered together as a complete block. For example, a grade 7 student enrolled in the in-person program will take STEM 6/7, Leadership 6/7, and an elective—all in-person on the same day. For the 2019-20 school year, WL is offering the following blocks of courses at CGA:

Grades 6-7

  • STEM 6/7
  • Leadership 6/7
  • Middle school elective

Grade 8

  • STEM 8
  • Leadership 8
  • Middle school elective

(Students in grades 6-8 will also take part in a Study Hour where they will complete assignments and get hands-on support from a program coordinator.)

Is space limited?

Yes, space is limited, so we encourage you to enroll ASAP!

Can students choose to take just one or two in-person courses?

For 2019-20, students must enroll in the full-day in-person block (including Science/STEM, Leadership, and electives) to participate in the in-person program. Students may not enroll in just one or two in-person courses.

If students enroll in the in-person block, for what other courses must students register?

CGA students who enroll in the in-person block must also take math and language arts.
