As Hollywood Moms we’re concerned about the unique educational needs and challenges of our children; performers who spend a majority of their day auditioning or working professionally. We spend a great deal of time in the HMB chat groups discussing home school versus physical school, private school versus public school, and so on. Then we come to our individual conclusions but privately continue to second guess ourselves. For those of you looking for a new homeschool program or those ready to take the first plunge into distance-learning, I wanted to share an educational option that may be of interest called Mosaica Online Academy of Los Angeles. Mosaic is a great fit for child actors and models who need a flexible program that works around their professional commitments, yet provides a high-quality college-prep education.
Ready for the best part? Mosaic is a completely free, online public charter school that provides caring, credentialed teachers, instruction and evaluation, curriculum materials, and even a laptop and printer for each child.
Why Mosaica Online Academy? At last! A “private school” quality education is now available for your child in the safety and convenience of your home. Mosaica Online Academy of Los Angeles is a college prep, liberal arts education that is supported by distance-learning teachers who are highly qualified in their respective content areas. Mosaica Online Academy offers the full Kindergarden through 12th grade learning experience and is California state-approved, fully accredited and tuition free. Mosaica Online Academy is ideal for
- Entrepreneurs with home-based businesses
- Child actors and athletes
- International, expat, military or film families who travel and relocate frequently
- Parents worried about their child’s safety at school
- Students not sufficiently challenged by traditional public education
- Any family seeking the highest quality education and who values a liberal arts foundation beginning as soon as Kindergarten
Mosaica Online has perfected the online learning experience for students at each grade level by integrating the best-in-class digital content with live instruction and daily interactions with expert distance learning teachers. This includes blended learning that is full of hands-on projects and offline work in addition to online instruction and collaborations. Mosaica Online features at its interdisciplinary core the acclaimed Paragon Curriculum, an academically challenging and intellectually stimulating humanities and social studies curriculum that integrates visual and performing arts, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
Rather than teach history in bits and pieces and in arbitrary sequence, Paragon provides an interdisciplinary and chronological journey through the history of great ideas and models of human excellence in world culture. Paragon is powerful because it recognizes, cultivates, and celebrates the potential and success of each student individually. With a hands-on approach, Paragon addresses students’ multiple intelligences and individual learning styles. Paragon guides students to see the richness of the world—past and present—and equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to contribute positively to our world, both now and in the future. Students learn about character, ethics, empathy and self-esteem by studying the world’s great heroes, both canonical and unsung, and by stepping into the shoes of great historical figures, both real and imaginary. Paragon looks to the past to prepare students to become the architects of tomorrow.
Paragon is a 90-minute per day (60-min for High School) feature of the curriculum and instruction that Mosaica Online students experience. The full Mosaica Online program follows a rigorous education model that is fully accredited, tested and proven in both classroom and online environments, and that is being implemented in 90 school settings worldwide, including U.S. charter, international private, and online schools.
