All students, regardless of grade level, are permitted to take a class through One Schoolhouse; however, freshmen are strongly advised to not take an online course.
Online courses will be given course credit and factored into the GPA by the Academy only under the following conditions:
I. The course is taken during the academic year, September through May, so the class can be supervised by school personnel. Summer online courses will not receive course credit and will not be factored into the GPA.
II. The student agrees to participate in the course during school hours while under the supervision of a member of the Academy faculty or administration.
III. The Academy does not offer the course.
IV. The Academy offers the course, but the student is unable to take it due to a scheduling conflict.
V. Only one full year or two half-year classes will be given credit, i.e. only an 8th course may receive credit. A 9th course will count as an independent study and will not qualify for Academy credit.
VI. Course weight (AP/Honors/College-Prep) is determined by One Schoolhouse and will be reflected on the student’s transcript.
A minimum of 130 course credits taken at Mount Saint Mary Academy are required for graduation. Students may not take online classes in order to graduate in three years.
In all cases the cost of the online course and all associated material fees will be paid by the student. Please visit the One Schoolhouse Tuition and Policies page
for pricing information.
