Students in the counties of San Diego, Orange, Imperial, San Bernardino, and Riverside can attend the school and enjoy a live virtual classroom environment. Students can receive homework assignments and turn in their assignments online. The courses are held in real time via computer and take place at various times during the day just like a traditional school. The school is not a self-paced school but holds classes just like a traditional school only via computer. The educational model used is the trimester model to help with credit recovery or even early graduation. The education tracks that students can choose include early graduation, community college concurrent enrollment, credit recovery, and traditional.
Along with core subjects, the school offers extra curricular activities, which include dance, computer arts, drama, photography, and drawing. The only sports offered are physical education classes.
