Online Options

For school year 2020-21, we have designed flexible models around plausible scenarios to respond to external conditions and regulations. Recognizing that some of these scenarios will again require remote instruction, we have improved our distance-learning capabilities and are training school leaders and teachers to perform well in a range of situations. We cannot predict how the school year will play out, but we are prepared to engage, nurture, and inspire our students, whether they are in our classrooms or your living rooms.

Our program is built around easy-to-follow, weekly learning plans, and includes:

  • A combination of real-time, online interactions with teachers and other students, plus pre-recorded sessions for flexible at-home consumption, and guided at-home offline activities
  • Lessons designed to develop age-appropriate skills and will focus on “scaffolded” core skill development in math, literacy, science, language, fine and gross motor skills, creative expression, and social/emotional development.
  • The scope and sequence of the program will be 100% aligned (week-by-week) with our on-campus program, such that if you choose to bring your child back to our in-person/on-campus school, the transition will be seamless.

K-8 Online Academy

Stratford School Online Academy is an option designed for families reluctant to send their children back to an on-campus environment in the fall.

The Stratford School Online Academy will be an extension of our school, our campus community, and our teachers. Children enrolled in this program will still feel a primary connection to Stratford School, as they will be taught primarily by Stratford School teachers, they will have the opportunity to take the same specialty courses, and they will participate in virtual campus events throughout the year.

How will the Online Academy work?
The delivery of the fully online, year-long curriculum will combine our school’s teaching with the interactive learning platform supported and powered by our partner school, Laurel Springs School (LSS). Leveraging the Laurel Springs’ platform allows us to draw upon proven online curriculum content and teaching mechanisms, yet do so in a way that is tailored for our Stratford School students.

About Laurel Springs:
Founded in 1991, Laurel Springs was the first online school in the U.S. The school holds two accreditations, WASC and AdvancEd, and currently serves more than 4000 students around the world. Every year, Laurel Springs School seniors matriculate to the most prestigious colleges in the country. More important for us, Laurel Springs’ curriculum meets our standard of academic challenge and excellence and is designed to be taught online. We have designed joint courses to maximize flexibility for children learning from home.
