Learning Resources


Central Lakes Adventure School uses a suite of online tools called Google Apps which includes things like: Gmail, Google Classroom, Google Docs, Google Slides, and Google Sheets.  Students are given an email address, but they are ONLY able to communicate with other students and staff of the school. Students can sign in to their email account and access other apps at

Other Online Learning Tools:

Students also use ALEKS for math skills practice and assessment and Reading Plus for reading comprehension, fluency and vocabulary skill building and assessment.  Teachers utilize these two programs in the classroom, but it is accessible from any device with their personal log in.

This collection of tools is very powerful and will help students learn necessary skills for our connected world. If you have any questions about Google Apps and what they are used for, please contact us at 218-746-3875. You can also see our Internet Safety/Acceptable Use Policy that students sign when they enroll and family safety information about Google learning tools can be found here.
