Online School for Girls
Lauralton Hall is excited about our affiliation with the Online School for Girls, having joined a group of more than thirty girls’ schools from across the country in this innovative educational opportunity. In the 2011-2012 school year, girls from 13 states, Australia, England and Asia took high-quality online courses offered through the Online School for Girls. At Lauralton, juniors and seniors were offered the opportunity to enroll in these online classes in the 2012-2013 school year.
Online education is the fastest growing segment of education today. More than one million high school students and more than four million college students took an online course last year. We know that these numbers will only grow in the future as more and more schools and professions look to online education and training. Considering the current numbers and additional research, it is a fair to make the assumption that all of our current students will at some point take a class online so we are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to our girls.
We know that online education is particularly well suited to girls who are independent, motivated, and mature. Taking an online course requires the ability to manage time well and to stay on top of tasks. In addition, we hope that girls interested in taking courses will also be excited about the possibility of trying something new and meeting girls from around the world. The Online School for Girls offers a variety of courses that will engage and challenge your daughter.
Juniors and seniors have the opportunity to submit a proposal to the Academic Dean for enrollment in an online elective course as part of the six (6) credits per year requirement. Courses from the Online School for Girls become part of a student’s transcript but are ot included in GPA calculations. Tuition for these courses is not covered by Lauralton Hall. Since we are an affiliate school, our students receive tuition discounts. Discounted tuition is $675 for a semester and $1395 for a full year.
Course Offerings for the 2013-2014 school year can be found on the Online School for Girls website.
