Online Charter School Partners Offers Civil Air Patrol Program

Jan. 11 Information Session Planned For Prospective Pivot North Bay Students

Pivot Charter School, North Bay, a full-time online public school, announced Thursday that it is launching a program that lets students earn elective credits while developing leadership skills and learning about aviation through the U.S. Air Force’s Civil Air Patrol auxiliary. The school has scheduled a local information session January 11 to help prospectivestudents and parents learn more during the open enrollment period for the spring 2012 semester.

“At Pivot, we continue to expand our offerings through the addition of innovative programs that will positively impact the lives of our students,” said Jayna Gaskell, Pivot Online Charter Schools executive director. “Our new Civil Air Patrol option represents a unique opportunity for North Bay middle and high school students to develop lifelong skills through a well-known national program.”

The optional Civil Air Patrol program complements Pivot’s online curriculum and offers students the chance to develop leadership skills; learn about astronomy, aeronautics and search and rescue; and serve the community. The hands-on program is taught by professional pilots, Air Force veterans and advanced Civil Air Patrol cadets. Students participate in field trips during which they apply their new skills in real-life settings.

“The Civil Air Patrol is one of the best-kept secrets among youth programs,” said Maj. Anthony Hamill, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol. “Civil Air Patrol helps students master skills that are essential to success in the classroom and the workplace. It is truly a fantastic program, and we are thrilled to reach more area students through our partnership with Pivot Online Charter School.”
