Start Something Real. 
Our Mission

Choffin Online Goals
  • Offer a non-traditional learning environment to students that is in line with Choffin Career & Technical Center and the Youngstown City School District's Mission and Vision.
  • Provide students who desire a non-traditional learning environment with the opportunities to acquire the education necessary to earn a diploma.
  • Establish individualized learning plans for participating students that are consistent with the Ohio Academic Standards and the graduation requirements of the Youngstown City School District.
  • Provide students with a sense of ownership and responsibility for their academics.
Program Overview
Choffin Online utilizes the APEX Learning Program to provide a rigorous, whole-course solution for granting credit in an online alternative learning environment.  These self-paced courses allow students to complete courses, recover credits, accrue credits and progress to graduation all with the assistance from academic teachers. APEX courses provide engaging instruction that matches the rigor of traditional classroom instruction.
Choffin Online in conjunction with APEX Learning offers:
  • A self pacing structure that allows students to "skip" content they already know as identified by a pre-assessment
  •  Features that support different learning modules, different reading levels, and provide an engaging and focused structure to keep students on track
  • Real world examples illustrating key points
  • Easy-to-follow sequences summarizing key pointsFormatting and navigation features that enable student-directed learning
  • Supplemental, standards-aligned online and offline activities designed to provide reinforcement and review as an extension of the course material
