WHAT IS DISTANCE EDUCATION?
Distance Education is a formal educational program accessed through a registered school. Students and Parents are responsible to engage with the provided program and return completed learning activities as directed by the teacher.
In Charlotte Mason College Distance Education, students are part of a community of learners. Students submit regular tasks as directed and are able to attend online classes to interact directly with teaching staff to build a broader understanding of the topics being covered, and to connect with their peers across Queensland. All instructional resources are packaged and delivered to our DE families at the beginning of each term including workbooks, textbooks, literature, and other helpful inclusions. Digital copies of the lessons and learning activities are also available to all students via our online learning management system.
In addition to our regular weekly lessons, CMC now offers our Distance Education students the opportunity to attend RAD – our Regional Activity Days.
RAD is offered at locations throughout Queensland to allow all our students and parents to connect with teachers and other families who live in their area. RAD is suitable for all ages and is a wonderful opportunity to explore the world through group activities, games, excursions, camps, nature studies, and more. As parents, students, and teachers attend RAD together in a relaxed environment outside the pressures of formal study, our CMC community is further strengthened under a common love of learning, exploring, and sharing wonder for the beauty of God’s creation.
Distance Education through CMC provides the level of accountability, resourcing and extra support services that many families are looking for.
