The Lower School online instruction offers a blend of Synchronous and Asynchronous learning. Synchronous learning happens in real time, whereas asynchronous learning occurs through online resources without real-time interaction. With the varying of grade levels and ages of students served at the Lower School division, each grade level uses a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning to meet the age appropriate needs of each students.
Through various platforms, faculty communicate lesson plans daily for parents and students to follow. While the Distance Learning model is different from the on-campus model, students still receive instruction in all core subjects: Mathematics, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies, as well as enrichment classes: Music, Art, Spanish, Physical Education, Technology, Library, and Drama.
