Montverde Academy has adapted in the face of unprecedented times with our families, teachers, staff, faculty, and broader community resilient in the face of challenges that the new coronavirus, COVID-19, has presented. MVA successfully transitioned to virtual academia, and while distance learning does not capture the feel of being on campus, our faculty have done an amazing job recreating our learning experience online using a variety of resources and thinking creatively to seamlessly continue academic instruction in a new way.
DISTANCE LEARNING IN ACTION
Instruction is provided through a blend of synchronous
virtual classes. Synchronous classes occur in real-time on a platform like Microsoft Teams or Zoom, allowing the teacher and peers to interact, discuss and engage for a lesson. Asynchronous classes are independent lessons using recorded video, technology and platforms like Canvas, Google Classroom or SeeSaw, for assignments with due dates that students work on at their own pace. We are also able to provide Learning Support Services
for students as needed.
This new way of learning requires a growth mindset more than ever. Our ideals of Knowledge, Community and Character and culture will prevail as we practice the growth mindset principles we have been exploring and embracing this year. Through hard work, good strategies for success and collaborating with a positive attitude and open mind, we will continue to achieve excellence together.
