Scholars Online Communities
Scholars Online is not merely a school; it is a community of students, teachers, parents, and friends who are dedicated to the idea that a classical Christian education can help prepare learners at all ages and stages for fuller participation in the life of the mind.
All members have access to The Commons, both a daily chat opportunity and a Moodle course, where they can meet in real time or exchange information asynchronously. The Moodle Commons also supports surveys and feedback opportunities.
A general forum in the Moodle allows students to start threads on almost any topic, ranging from debates over PCs vs. Macs and games of hangman, to poetry contests, short story publication, event planning, and reviews of movies and books. Other forums support discussions of college admission practices, parent concerns.
Parents should be aware that while these forums are monitored, content is not censored, providing students adhere to the Moodle policy signed on their first login to the Moodle. Some topics may not be suitable for all students. We prefer that students debate even controversial subjects in the relative safety and privacy of our Moodle environment, and in an environment where they can learn to respect differences in perspective and conviction while still seeking common ground to act in charity together.
Scholars Online is planning an online reunion during Summer, 2021 for all our former ISLAS, SOLA, and Scholars Online students. Join the Alumni Mailing List to stay up to date on this and other opportunities to reconnect with fellow students and your teachers!
