Our modular schedule provides a flexible approach to learning. The schedule runs four courses at a time and changes every nine weeks. This allows our students more choice of courses over their four years. It also helps our students to focus their energy on fewer courses at any one time.

ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING

Learn Anytime. Anywhere.

While coursework during the four-year program will be asynchronous, there will be many opportunities for connection between teacher and student. Students will have the flexibility to complete tasks, projects, and assessments at their own pace utilizing an interactive online learning platform established by The Mount Vernon School. Additionally, students will be able to engage with high touch faculty members for dialogue, questions, and tutoring through dedicated “office hours.”

Relationships are Foundational

Faculty Connection

As a school of inquiry, innovation, and impact we know the most important relationship in school is the one created between a teacher and student. We believe that to design a better world requires teachers and students to see themselves as learners, connectors, networkers, and designers. When and how we connect is key.

A Week in the Life

Every student checks-in digitally daily.
Every student checks-in with teacher (at least) weekly.
Feedback on progress is shared 24-48 hrs after submission.
Every student meets with advisor weekly.
Students meet in cohorts formally once a MOD.
Students meet in cohorts informally when needed.
Students, teachers and parents meet mid-MOD to review reflection journal and progress.
Students will have access to Learning Coaches and/or Counselor if needed.
Students will have access to Technology Support if needed.

Academic Support

Structured, sustainable support is important for all of our students. Whether it is through the weekly check-ins with your advisor, a spontaneous drop-in with our school counselor or one-on-one tutorials with our Learning Coaches, we want you to have the support you need to thrive.

PEOPLE. PLANET. POTENTIAL.

Expeditionary Learning

Because powerful learning happens everywhere, we offer opportunities for expeditionary learning. Expeditionary learning — travel, internships, and/or innovative projects — provides connections for authentic exploration, experimentation, and impact. This allows our students the opportunity to explore content in tangible environments to better understand where their learning actually lives in the world. Without field visits, they would not be able to collect data, curate artifacts, or make the connections necessary to enhance their knowledge. We believe that wondering and wandering beyond the online coursework can be a rich and valuable experience that makes learning more like real life.
