Remote Learning Program

During this time of educational interruption, many families have inquired about the opportunity to enroll at Austin Prep for the remainder of the school year and take advantage of our already established Remote Teaching and Learning (RTL) Program. At this time, we have limited openings in our Upper School to enroll students for the upcoming 4th quarter. We also have limited openings in our 7th grade. One of the hallmarks of Austin Prep is our low teacher-student ratio and small class size. Should we be able to return to campus this spring, students will be able to attend classes at Austin Prep and be immersed in the full Austin Prep experience.

Austin Prep’s Remote Teaching and Learning environment follows a modified rotating block schedule which includes Austin Prep’s hallmark advisory program. Classes are 45-minutes in length and allows teachers to interact with their students to discuss concepts, skills, and assessments. There are four classes a day, and advisory meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

As an incoming student, this spring, you’ll be assigned a faculty-advisor to assist you in your transition. You’ll meet as a group of no more than ten students on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning. Your advisor will also arrange individual appointments throughout the week to assist you in your transition to Austin Prep this spring.

Students will be placed in five or six academic courses based on availability in English, Mathematics, Science, History, Theology, and World Language courses. The additional periods in the rotation will be off periods to allow for students to further connect with their advisor and work on assignments. Any students joining for the fourth quarter will have a conversation with a member of the Academic Office to build out the best possible schedule. All of the courses are graded and will include homework, classwork, and other assessments delivered through the Zoom video conferencing app and the Google Suite.

There are limited openings within the Upper School and 7th grade programs. Please contact the Office of Admissions at steve.silverthorn@austinprep.org to enroll in this program or if you have questions.
