Founded in 2011, SCWS practices a unique approach to education; it is a self-paced alternative learning style allowing students to advance through online courses at their own pace. This appeals to the entire spectrum of students. For quick learners who are ahead of their peers, this self-determined schedule has allowed over twenty-five students to graduate an entire academic year early. For other students, SCWS serves as an alternative approach to learning for those left behind in traditional classroom settings. By taking the time needed to master a course, over 200 students classified as “at-risk” have graduated, many of who were not on track to graduate at all.
