CPA has offered online schooling since 1997 and was one of the first accredited homeschool programs in the country to offer online schooling. We have been fully accredited since 1997 by the National Private School Group. CPA additionally has an on-campus school with professional staff and teachers at our office/school location in Apopka, FL.
You can enroll at any time throughout the year. It is our goal to get you online within 48 hours after completion of all enrollment requirements. Students enrolling mid-term do not have to re-do any work already accomplished with a passing grade.
Private School enrollment is included in enrollment fees. CPA Homeschool Academy is a fully-accredited private school for record keeping and legal fulfillment. You do not need to sign up with your county as a homeschool student. You are officially a private school student and not a homeschool student when registered with CPA Homeschool Academy. CPA keeps your cumulative records just like any private or public school and provides you with progress reports for K-8 and professional transcripts for high school. Upon completion of graduation requirements, a student may graduate with an accredited diploma.
We offer four graduation options to meet the needs of every student. We help with college recommendations, Florida Bright Futures Scholarships (for FL students), dual enrollment paperwork, transcripts, graduation, and diploma.
Four High School Graduation Options
- Scholar - 28 credits
- Standard - 24 credits
- Accelerated - 18 credit (3-year graduation)

All teachers that work with our online academy are teachers from our on-campus program that we know and trust with our own children. All teachers are background checked, fingerprinted, and have received numerous recommendations from other professionals before being selected to teach at Champion.
Choice of Curriculum
Parents may add coursework from home programs, dual enrollment, other classes, etc. and receive credit from CPA Homeschool Academy. Parents may use the online curriculum in a way that works best for your student. We never require you complete all your coursework online unless it is your desire to use the online academy as your only curriculum choice. Once you are enrolled, our guidance counselor is happy to help you select classes.
If your student failed a class or coursework, our online academy can quickly get your student back on track. Students only complete work that they have not mastered.
Record Keeping and Progress Reports
We require that parents provide CPA with previous student records. Please visit our How to Enroll page for details.
The academy teacher will post grades to the student's cumulative file records or for high school, on the student transcript for our Apex and Ignitia enrollment options. The parent is responsible for reporting with Compass Learning. If your student is taking other classes outside of the online academy, we will ask the parent to submit these grades so that we can post them on the student’s permanent record.
Online Academy Enrollment Options
Three Online Choices
All options include enrollment in our CPA Homeschool Academy.
- Option 1 - Ignitia Grades 3-12: This online curriculum is Christ-centered, offers placement testing, teacher and computer grading, and weekly teacher monitoring. Our teacher also inputs the grades to the student progress reports and permanent records.
- Option 2 - Apex Learning Grades 8-12: Apex Learning works well for a student that is motivated to work independently. It also works well for struggling students as well as honors and certified AP courses. Champion teachers grade unit exams and post midterm and final grades but do not offer weekly support to keep your student motivated. Our teacher also inputs the grades to the student progress reports and permanent records.
- Option 3 - Compass Learning Grades K-12: This program requires a parent to set the pace and determine which skills students should complete. Champion provides a form to help with this. It is an award-winning program for grades K-3 for teaching reading and math skills and offers a complete curriculum for grades K-12. Select this option to use as a curriculum supplement or a full curriculum. This option does not include teacher monitoring, grading, or teacher-reported grades to the permanent records.
Ignitia Christian Online Academy Grades 3-12
We provide placement tests to 3rd-12th grade at no extra cost. Placement testing can be used to determine if your student has gaps in their education so that we can assign the right curriculum. Placement testing is optional.
Bible is a Christ-centered curriculum for grades 3-12 with a developmental, in-depth study of the Old and New Testaments. Using the King James Version, this Bible curriculum covers a variety of biblical material to assist in the development of practical Christian living. The Bible curriculum provides instruction in theology, attributes of God, Biblical literature, Biblical geography, and Christian growth.
History and Geography is a complete, Bible-based curriculum for grades 3-12. The goal is to develop students’ understanding of and appreciation for God’s activity as seen in the record of man and his relationships. The curriculum targets this goal by focusing on six major themes: geography (world and American), history (world and religious history), government and citizenship, economics, and social studies.
Language Arts for grades 3-12 targets the sequential development of communication skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Because language arts is an integrated program, the elementary grades weave skill topics (reading, writing, listening, speaking) together within units. In the middle and high school grades, skills are developed unit by unit. The major strands are detailed as follows: reading (vocabulary, comprehension skills, literature studies), writing (spelling, penmanship, grammar, composition), speaking and listening, and special topics (visual media, history of the English research skills).
Science is an exciting, Bible-based curriculum for grades 3-12. Students develop observational skills as they study the physical universe God created. The program involves a combination of on and off-computer assignments including experiments. Elementary and middle-school grades (3-9) observe each area of science on an individual survey basis, usually unit by unit. The high school grades (10-12) focus on specific areas of science— biology, chemistry, and physics. The four major strands are as follows: life science (plants and animals, human anatomy and personal care, biology), space and earth science (geology, weather, space), physical science (chemistry, physics), nature of science (scientific method, experimentation, technology.)
Math is a comprehensive, easy-to-use curriculum for grades 3-12. Students will develop and build math skills through various question formats, multiple exercise techniques, and fun learning games. This motivating math curriculum prepares students for using math successfully in real-life situations. Concepts are developed through grade levels to endure mastery. The curriculum targets this goal by focusing on five major themes: number skills, geometry, algebra, data analysis, and pre-calculus.
Electives CPA Online Academy offers a variety of elective courses to diversify your student’s study. Mostly designed for middle and high school grades, these courses are made to enrich core subjects.
Apex Learning Grades 8-12
General Studies Courses
The Apex Learning general studies curriculum features three course pathways to prepare all high school graduates for college and career. The courses in these three pathways share a common scope and sequence and cover the same rigorous, standards-based content.
Foundations courses meet the needs of both high school students and transitioning middle school students who are not prepared for grade-level academic challenges. Specifically developed for students ages 13 and older, foundations courses provide structured remediation in math, reading, and writing.
Literacy Advantage Courses
Literacy advantage courses support academic success in standards-based high school courses for students who are reading below proficient. Literacy advantage courses assist students in mastering required math, science, English, and social studies content to earn credits toward graduation, while simultaneously developing reading skills.
Core courses meet the needs of a range of students as they endeavor to master rigorous content and earn credits toward graduation. While Core courses assume readiness for grade-level academic challenges, they also include targeted scaffolding for students who benefit from additional learning support.
Honors courses meet the needs of motivated students seeking to accelerate their learning and deepen conceptual understanding. With many opportunities to apply, extend, and synthesize knowledge, honors courses are ideally suited to prepare students for the rigors of Advanced Placement courses.
Advanced Placement Courses
Authorized by the College Board, Apex Learning AP courses meet higher-education expectations of college-level courses and prepare students to demonstrate achievement through success on the AP exams. Courses target highly motivated students who are reading at grade level or above and who have a track record of success in high school coursework. Students that take the AP exam at their local district high school and receive a score of three (3) or higher may receive college credit for the course.
Exam Prep Courses
Additionally, Apex Learning Exam Prep courses help students to prepare for success on high-stakes exams.
