eLearning at Mount de Sales

With the institution of our 1:1 learning platform in 2015, our faculty have been trained on how to utilize technology to advance learning objectives for situations like snow days. In March, our faculty were trained on using our Learning Management Software to host live lessons remotely with their students.

Faculty and students alike have found the platform easy to use and the response from students and parents has been overwhelmingly positive. They specifically noted how reassuring it has been to see and interact with teachers and classmates during this time away from school. The platform has allowed instruction to continue so our students can stay on track and in touch.
“We hear from our school community daily that the eLearning experience has been positive. Using the “chat” function in conferences has given new voice to students who otherwise hesitate to speak aloud. Students are connecting with the whole class in the chat mode in whimsical, yet profound, ways, and there is an overall sense of gratitude and solidarity for what is most important: connection."
Sr. Mary Raymond, O.P., Principal

Staying Connected

Mount de Sales Academy has launched additional programming for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year to provide extra connection. Our goal is to connect our students together in healthy ways that parallel the Mount de Sales experience. Indeed, we are known for preparing students extraordinarily well academically. Our mission is, and has always been, fostering the flourishing of your daughters into confident, poised, and self-possessed young women, which is just as important as academic formation.
