HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC, April 20 /Christian Newswire
/ -- America's newest Christian high school is being built without the assistance of a single architect, engineer or contractor.
That's because when St. Mark's Academy opens next fall, it will be completely online.
"St. Mark's Academy provides an alternative for those middle and high school students whose needs are not being met in a traditional school setting," said Jamie Osborne, the school's Headmaster. "Our educational model is designed to provide a learning option that maximizes flexibility and personalization, without sacrificing academic quality."
A key feature of the school is 24/7 on-demand access to e-instructors, said Osborne. These content-area experts - most of whom are Masters or Ph.D.-level educators - are just a mouse click away.
Given the current economic climate, school officials have made every effort to keep tuition low, said Osborne. "We also have a convenient monthly payment plan, which eliminates the need to pay for a semester in advance," he said.
St. Mark's digital curriculum offers a range of solutions to support students, from pre-high school Foundations level courses through college-level Advanced Placement.
"Most often, we are forced to take a 'one size fits all' approach to education," said Donna Antonopoulos, a middle school Spanish teacher from South Carolina who also serves as a St. Mark's enrollment counselor. "With this new school, we can provide a much more customized approach that addresses different learning styles and paces."
A series of virtual information sessions for parents and students is currently being planned, Osborne noted.
