Envision Academy is a daily, blended learning, online (Edmentum software) program where students take 1-3 classes in the on-campus Envision Academy classroom, and take their remaining courses on the Gilroy High School campus. In the Envision Academy classroom, teachers help students with coursework and mastery of standards based content. The teachers also provide content based lessons, tutoring, STEAM activities, community building, and social-emotional support. In addition, Envision Academy teachers work alongside Gilroy High School staff and guardians to support student success in all classes. Students are committed to the Envision Academy program for the school year; however, they are welcome to transfer back to Christopher High School or Gilroy High School at the end of the year, or select to remain in the hybrid program. There will be a few exceptions depending on the specific needs of the student.
** The initial application due date is May 31, 2020. Envision Academy staff will continue to review applications on a rolling basis. **
