What is Distance Education?
The Qld Department of Education and Training defines the term as follows:
With distance education, a parent enrols their child in a school of distance education and a school program is provided by that school for the child. Teachers are available to help monitor the child’s learning, and a teacher from the school prepares progress reports about the child. The parent is the supervisor or home tutor to the child within their home. There are state schools and accredited non-state schools of distance education.
Charlotte Mason College provides full-service education support for Distance Education students and their parents, as well as On- Campus classrooms for Preschool to Year 12. Our Distance Education students are usually learning at home, and supervised by a parent, governess or tutor.
A CMC Learning Advisor interviews the parent and student by phone to assess their educational needs. After negotiation with the parent, the Learning Advisor then maps any suggested learning activities, resources and strategies to the National Curriculum.
The students may also participate in periodic classes through flexible learning arrangements, activity days and camps offered by the school.
A consultant will discuss with you the options available for you, to determine the education services that will best cater to your individual needs.
Parents who are searching for an on-campus day-school should ask for the Charlotte Mason College On-Campus Prospectus.
