Our Educational Programs
CORE Butte offers support classes for our Personalized Learning Program at three sites in Chico and Paradise.
- K-8 Home Study Program
- The roots of our program reside in the home study model, with K-8 located in Chico on Humboldt Avenue, and in Paradise on Pearson Road. These programs offer an hour or more per week support for some elective and academic subjects, while the parents provide the daily academic instruction for all subjects. Personalized Learning Teachers work with the parents to select state standards aligned curriculum, assignments, and assessments. Work is completed by the student every academic day of the school year, under the supervision of the parent. Field trips, tutoring, and classes in the community are coordinated by the parent and teacher to accommodate the student's best learning schedule. A budget is put in place to allow all students access to these academic supports.
- CORE Butte High School Program (CBHS)
- CBHS (CORE Butte High School) is located on Cohasset Road and was designed as a hybrid "college" model school for grades 9-12. An independent home study model is also offered through CBHS. The college model program allows students to attend three or more classes per week on site. This program allows students to attend three or more classes per week on site. This model provides academic instruction delivered by education professionals two or three days per week. The parent is still very involved in supervising and correcting homework, participating in meetings regularly with the teacher and student, and becoming engaged with the overall high school program. CBHS also provides a small high school culture for students that is safe, promotes responsibility, and offers many opportunities. Our sports program includes volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball, track and golf. Other sports are planned for the future. The ASB (Associated Student Body) sponsors community events, dances and a prom. The program is designed to offer both flexibility and stability.
