Your pathway to meaningful distance learning that is uniquely St. George's
At the core of St. George’s approach to distance learning is the belief that we should always embrace new opportunities for students to learn in authentic, meaningful ways.
This explains why we looked past the more traditional online learning models and chose distance learning to encourage the greater engagement of our students as our main priority. Using the term “distance learning” rather than technology-specific labels such as “virtual learning” or “online classes” reflects an intentional choice stemming from our conviction that quality learning can occur at a distance without solely relying on computers.
Our distance learning model is based on an understanding of cognitive development. The learning experiences teachers design when school is in regular session cannot be simply replicated through distance learning. The Blvd., our meaningful distance learning model, invokes the St. George’s approach to teaching and learning to further foster collaboration, creativity, and connection. The virtual, or online aspect of this process, is merely the means or the conduit of transmission.
Since 1930, our Six Founding Principles have been a vital driver of our progressive teaching and learning practices at St. George’s, where the whole child—intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially—is always our top priority, whether on campus or at a distance.
