Program Description

BAKER WEB ACADEMY VISION

The heart of success for Baker Web Academy is helping all students become motivated, INDEPENDENT learners in an environment of INNOVATION, individualized education, and personal INTERACTION.

Baker Web Academy offers K-12 students a full menu of classes (online and/or textbook-based) as well field trips, labs, and other face-to-face educational opportunities. Each family is assigned a mentor teacher who visits the student twice a month in the comfort of the student's own home, or at a local business if the family prefers. Teachers are Oregon-certified instructors who care about students and want to make their education meaningful and challenging. Students receive the materials they need for success, whether that is a laptop or online guided textbooks.

BAKER EARLY COLLEGE

Baker Early College's purpose is to make COLLEGE possible TODAY for students who are ready for the challenges and rewards so they will be READY for TOMORROW.

Baker Early College allows students grades 10-12 a chance to complete high school and start their college experience early. Students attend local community college classes and gain high school and college credit at the same time. BEC pays for 12 credits per term of tuition/fees and $200 in book reimbursements. Students are supported by licensed staff who are experts at making community college studies successful. Many students earn their high school diploma with 1-2 years of college already completed!
