Carpe Diem E-Learning Community opened in 2001 as a charter school providing an alternative educational environment for students in 6th through 12th grades. The school prides itself on college preparatory classes with all courses being performed on computers.
The highlights of the Carpe Diem E-Learning Community school include self paced curriculum, large library of courseware created by e2020, individually created plans, custom made practices, the arts, character education, physical education, languages, and student internship with local companies.
Parents are pleased with the way in which students can work at their own pace and work toward graduation as well as work in order to receive credits.
In the state of Arizona, all students attending a public school including public charter schools are required to participate in the AIMS exam which measures the ability of students to master specific courses. All tenth graders must pass or exceed the standards of the exam in order to graduate from high school.
In reading, 70% of students passed or exceeded the standard with the state average at 78%, in science 17% with the state at 42%, in writing 55% with the state at 68%, and in math 44% with the state at 60%.
