Welcome to CHOICE Technical Academy!
We are a free, public charter school that focuses on career and college preparedness for grades 7th to 12th.
The curriculum is designed for students who enjoy learning by doing with a hands-on, project-based learning focus. Our environment builds student autonomy through relevant learning opportunities; create student belongingness through full-time advisories; and empower teachers via teacher-led and democratically governed schools.
Our students’ interests drive their learning environment, which leads to high levels of ownership, engagement, and hope. Daily opportunities for critical thinking, collaboration, and exploration foster a natural love of learning in students that goes well beyond the school walls.
What is Project-Based Learning?
Project-based learning (PBL) as defined by PBLWORKS.org, is "a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects."
In PBL, lessons are not like a traditional classroom. We push our students beyond just listening to lectures and memorizing facts. Instead, teachers guide and help students turn their personal interests and culture into well thought-out projects. Students explore topics they enjoy while learning real-world skills like:
- Critical Thinking
- Growth mindset
- Project Management
- ... and so many more!
