Cyber School Family Mentor Program

Because Commonwealth Charter Academy is rooted in family service, we have implemented a family mentor program to help all newly enrolled and struggling families adjust to online learning. Family mentors are veteran CCA parents who assist all newly enrolled and emerging families.

CCA’s family mentors understand that online education is a community effort.

They offer yearlong, non-academic support, providing guidance and tips to help families meet the unique needs of their newly enrolled students.

CCA Family Mentor Testimonials

The Ferguson family was looking for a school that allowed them to balance the children’s education with family togetherness, but mom, Jen, was hesitant about taking sole responsibility for teaching all her children. CCA was the ideal choice, and this once-new parent found her family thriving within CCA’s robust support system.

Now, the Ferguson family has been with CCA for eight years, and Jen serves as a family mentor herself, helping new families make the adjustment to cyber school and being available to offer guidance whenever she can, drawing from her own experiences. New families receive a letter with the name of the family mentor closest to them, who is always happy to help make the transition as smooth as possible.
