Catholic Virtual School
The Hybrid Classroom
Virtual classes at Queen of All Saints Online Academy allow students to engage in every aspect of the classroom through real-time interaction for the entire school day. There are no recordings, no self-teaching. Live teachers, live classmates, 100% of the school day.
The Evolution of Our Catholic Virtual School
In 2010, the Sisters began to receive requests to allow student boarders. But the Sisters could not start a boarding school due to the lack of facilities for such a project. To answer the educational needs of the children living remotely, Mother Mary Theresa, Principal of QAS, began to research catholic virtual education. This was a daunting task since our research was underway in 2016, Pre-Covid when virtual education for children was underdeveloped.
In the research and experimentation with our school's volunteer pilot program, we quickly realized that online students were at a disadvantage due to the lack of monitoring, accountability, and teacher help. This realization initiated the development of the catholic homeschool academy that rivals the campus experience.
