With the vast majority of the nation’s schools closing for COVID-19 fears, yet another weakness of classroom education has been unveiled.
Many schools have closed for two, three, four weeks, and even more. This brings about such a disruption in education that states are halting their state-imposed standardized testing. Since classroom-based schools often “teach toward the test,” a lack of teaching will cause poor standardized test grades, and thus show the system as deficient. Rather than do this, states simply stop taking the tests!
In online education, pandemics are of little worry. Students are already practicing social isolation (and reaping great benefits far beyond avoiding various viruses), and when they do get sick, they are able to put down the classroom work and later pick up right where they left off, with nothing being lost.
To help parents who are considering ways to salvage this year’s education, the Darby Academy is offering a no-matriculation special during the month of March 2020. Parents can enroll their children with the $250 matriculation-fee waved. Since this is a one-time fee, parents will be able to keep their children in the Darby Academy for future education, fee-free! The parent will pay tuition for March, April, and May, a total of $300, payable in monthly installments.
To take advantage of this offer, click here for a no-obligation enrollment. We will contact parents by phone to discuss the child’s education, and get the child enrolled and started right away.
Don’t miss any school this year, and finish the year on May 22! We think you will LOVE online education from a Biblical worldview.
