About TeLA

Principal's MessageTop of Page

Greetings, and Welcome to Tehama eLearning Academy!
 
As the first “Blended Model” school in California, we have dynamic and engaging programs that set us apart from the traditional public school. Not only do we excel in the delivery of online academics, but we also provide many on-site offerings: 
  • core academic classes
  • tutoring
  • fine arts electives 
Our flexible school schedule allows students from Tehama, Shasta, Butte, Trinity, Plumas, and Glenn counties to attend a WASC-accredited, public school in a decidedly non-traditional way.

Come and find out what makes TeLA such an exciting alternative.

A Blended Academic ModelTop of Page

The intent of the school is to use computers and associated technology as instructional tools, allowing students to complete their online coursework from anywhere they can access the Internet. Additionally, a more traditional approach to instruction takes place at the Red Bluff location, including language arts, math, science, personalized tutoring, and electives. This blended academic model, which includes both online and onsite learning, allows each student to achieve a more complete education through a custom-designed model of instruction based on their own needs. We offer a full range of online academic courses, for students enrolled in grades seven through adult. Students who live in Tehama and the five adjacent counties are eligible to enroll.  

Our target is any student who can benefit most from a self-paced, personalized instruction that is delivered on site or in the home via technology. We believe that, given a comprehensive and mastery-based curriculum, high expectations, access to technology (computer and Internet), strong instructional support, guidance from experienced teachers, a strong commitment from parents (or other caring adults), and a well-conceived virtual education program can help boost student achievement, serve the unique needs of students and families, and offer a new model for effective public education in the 21st century.
