Elite Academics – fostering learning, leadership, communication, and character.

Distance Learning

In response to the public health risks associated with the COVID-19 virus, The Guthrie School will be offering students and families the choice of Distance (Virtual) Academy method or In-Person method for at least Quarter 1.

The Guthrie School will continue to monitor daily updates from world, national, state, and local officials to determine for how long a Distance (Virtual) Academy is recommended or necessary.

Our Virtual Academy model for students requires the support from caring adults at home and within the online classroom environment. Activities are designed to ensure that students continue learning at the pace of The Guthrie School’s scope and sequence as well as developing a love of learning and gaining the reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, arts, and interpersonal skills essential to their future success.

In keeping with our identity as an elite private school, The Guthrie School will structure the students’ learning schedule to require students to participate in synchronous and asynchronous learning depending on the identified learning model. Teachers will structure the instructional day to follow the Classroom Daily Schedule.

Within each content instructional block, teachers will plan for students to participate in synchronous and asynchronous learning depending on the identified learning model. Teachers will structure small group time to differentiate instruction within the instructional block.
