Online School for Girls
Preparing for success in the digital age
We have partnered with the Online School for Girls (OSG) to offer select classes that will enhance the educational opportunities of our students and prepare them for successful futures in the digital age. The Online School for Girls shares our commitment to all-girls education and is guided by current research on how girls learn best. The school focuses on the following:
- Emphasizing connections among participants
- Incorporating collaboration into the learning experience
- Inspiring and rewarding creativity
- Engaging in real-world problem solving and applications while having students probe the social and ethical dynamics that define and stretch our global society
About Online Education
Online learning is rapidly becoming a cornerstone of the educational experience for students in the 21st century. According to The International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), more than four million K-12 students participated in a formal online learning program in 2010.
Opportunities in the virtual classroom are available to students in 48 states and Washington, D.C., "but none of them specifically address the educational needs of girls,” explains Ann Pollina, president of the Board of Trustees for the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools. "We believe that girls inhabit online spaces differently than boys and that this initiative can combine a powerful, transformative online learning environment for girls with a high-quality, 21st century academic experience."
