Monarch Academy Annapolis announces distance learning eschool for 2020-2021

Monarch Academy in Annapolis has announced that it will offer a blended distance learning option for the 2020-2021 school year and continuing as a permanent program.

The new eSchool @ Monarch Academy Annapolis will be 80% virtual and up to 20% in-classroom. It intends to “provide the same rigorous programs and services in a blended distance learning environment.”

Monarch will hold a virtual open house for families interested in enrolling in the school on Wednesday, June 24, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The school is open to students who live in the Annapolis cluster entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the fall of 2020. Bus transportation is provided from established stops.

According to Kathy Lane, chief of educational services for The Children’s Guild Alliance, which operates Monarch Academy Annapolis, “We learned with the COVID-19 school closures that some students truly excelled and thrived in a distance learning model.” She added that “This innovative option for families in the Annapolis area provides a new, parallel approach to our academic programming rooted in International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, arts integration and social-emotional skill building.”

Monarch Academy Annapolis, which opened in 2017, is a primary performing visual arts school and follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which challenges students to think critically and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues.

Registration is now open on a first-come, first-served basis for the new eSchool option.
Additionally, students who apply for the 2020-21 school year are eligible to attend the school’s Transformation Theatre Company, a performing arts summer camp.

To attend the virtual open house or apply to the existing or eSchool program, visit MonarchAcademy.org/Annapolis/admissions/. For more information, call 443-678-3407 or email info@monarchacademyannapolis.org.
