About Cruiser Academy
Cruiser Academy is designed to help students earn credits in an aggressive manner. Students who fall behind in a traditional setting have very little opportunity to accelerate the learning process. Cruiser Academy is designed to meet the individual needs of students.

Five dedicated coaches are on staff to assist students through the Novel Star curriculum. Students will work on web-based courses that adjust course work based on a student's prior knowledge. Two sessions are available to accommodate different parental and student needs. Students also have the option to access the course work from home, allowing them to complete courses quicker.

OAPCS Congratulates the 2013 School Award Winners

The Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools held its 7th Annual Conference at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. Bill Young, administrator of Cruiser Academy, was on hand to receive an award while at the conference. The theme of this year's event was "Educate, Collaborate, Celebrate." Those words fit perfectly with the work going on at Cruiser Academy. For last year’s academic performance, Cruiser Academy received an Honorable Mention award, which means that they received an "A" or "B" rating in two-thirds of the measures. Cruiser Academy is in the top 20% in the State of Ohio for Dropout Recovery schools. 



Superintendent, Monique Hamilton had this to say, "Over the years, Cruiser Academy staff has worked diligently to design a program that is challenging for our students. We are proud of both staff and students in their efforts which have ultimately made our school a success."



Young was excited to be recognized among the top 11 Dropout Prevention schools. He gladly received the award on behalf of all students and staff at Cruiser Academy that work every day to pursue their dreams. He stated, "I believe this recognition honors the work that our students, and staff do on a daily basis to pursue academic excellence." 



Amon Dobbins, Guidance Counselor at Cruiser Academy, continued by saying, "Nothing, outside of yourself, keeps you from achieving your dreams."

Read All About It!
The latest edition of the Cruiser Chronicles is out and ready for viewing. Take a look and read about the latest updates on the May levy, the Superintendent's State of the District address and the Blizzard Bags to be issued today. 
District to Implement Blizzard Bags
Under current state law, school districts are allotted five calamity days per school year. Additional calamity days means districts must make up those days. In 2011, a provision was created to grant schools permission to use blizzard bags to make up an additional three calamity days. 
Snow Day Make-Up at Cruiser Academy
Amid another wave of winter storms and calamity days piling up, I thought this would be a suitable time to remind everyone about our alternate make-up plan.  As you may know, we have used eleven calamity days in our building.  The Alternative plan for making up instruction would allow us to add 2 ½ hours (12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.) to each school day starting February 19, 2014 thru March 20, 2014.
