Scholars Online teachers are offering a 50% tuition discount on selected Scholars Online courses for our current and past member families and their friends who enroll between June 5 and June 12, 2021. This offer is not available to the general public. But you can invite your friends to enroll as well — just have them mention you when they enter enrollment background information.

New Course Offering! Learn essential study skills in our new precocious student summer course!

We know that students often struggle with our challenging courses, so we’ve put together an eight-week summer course on study skills essential to not merely surviving but excelling in any academic setting.

And because we as teachers expect to reap the benefits of having students who are organized and ready to learn, we’re adding a special incentive: students who complete the course will receive a $50 discount on each 2020-2021 academic year course in which they enroll. (Yes, we’ll credit already enrolled students as well!)

To make it easy for students to attend, we’re offering two chat sections a week, Wednesday evenings and Friday mid-day. Both sessions will cover the same material, and students can attend either or both, depending on their own schedules.

Learn more about this course at How to Become a Precocious Student.

Orientation Session This Coming Week

Orientation to Scholars Online Chat and Moodle is a short introduction to the functions of our own special AJAX-powered HTML-enabled chat environment and our Moodle course delivery system. Learn how to get the most out of live chat so that you can fully participate in your classes, and how to navigate the Moodle to find your courses, assignments, grades, messages from teachers and other students, and post to forums and submit assignments.

For new students and parents, our summer course orientation session will also include a brief overview of our policies concerning student privacy, email use, and maintaining the integrity of student work. We encourage you to make time to attend this session. Acknowledging that you will adhere to our policies is a critical part of being a Scholars Online member, and our policy orientation is designed to let you ask any questions that you have.

Returning students are very welcome to attend orientation and help us welcome new students into the Scholars Online community.

Summer Term Orientation Session

To attend the orientation session, log into your chat list and click on the chat for The Commons. If you are unable to attend the scheduled session, you will be able to review the orientation log. If you still have questions, let us know when you may be available, and we will consider creating a second orientation for Summer, 2021.

Academic Year 2020-2021 Feedback Surveys

We encourage all of our members — students, parents, and teachers — to tell us what worked and didn’t work for them during the 2020-2021 school year so that we can improve our ability to give you courses that are grounded, rigorous, and thorough. Surveys for all Scholars Online 2020 members are available now in The Commons. We hope that you will take the time to give us your input by June 20 so that we can take it to the Scholars Online Board of Directors Planning Group at their meeting the last week of June.

Alumi and Parents of Former Students: We are especially interested in your feedback. Email Dr. Christe at if you would like access to the Moodle Commons to complete an alumni or parent survey.

Continuing in the Word

Our philosophy teacher, Karl Oles, has posted a new blog entry "KFC, Time Traveler" at the Scholars Online blog Continuing in the Word. He invites you to join him as a time traveler to ancient Rome to see just how much you can communicate with Roman citizens and soldiers. If your Latin skills are up to the challenge, you can take a role as a Roman instead. Here’s a chance to play along and review your Latin skills with other Latin enthusiasts. All are welcome -- you don’t have to belong to Scholars Online to play!
