Roycemore Online

Roycemore Online was launched in response to demand for remote learning during COVID-19 as an option for students who chose to continue to participate in their courses remotely due to health and safety concerns. We created a full-time, off-campus option to accommodate the needs of those students. We decided to expand the Roycemore Online program to service families who have children enrolled in other schools, but are seeking a way to supplement their child’s education with high quality, online courses. 

Full Time Online Education for Students in Grades PreK – 12th

The remote learning experience through Roycemore Online varies by division. In the Middle and Upper School, students participate in courses synchronously from their homes while some students participate on campus. In the Lower School, students work directly with their classroom teacher for multiple one-on-one meetings during the week, with the majority of schoolwork taking place in an asynchronous way. Some synchronous learning will also be scheduled into the school week. If government mandates dictate for the whole school to transition to remote learning, then all students will participate remotely. 

Individual Courses Available for High School Academic Credit

As a service to public school students and homeschool students who are seeking an additional challenge beyond what they are currently receiving, we are pleased to share that Roycemore Online offers a chance for students to take individual classes without being enrolled as a full-time Roycemore student. All courses available are Upper School level courses and pre-requisites do apply for some options. Please check course descriptions below for these details along with dates and times that the class meets. Also note that part-time students can enroll in up to two Roycemore Online courses at one given time.

Why Roycemore for Online?

“Roycemore has been an excellent in class school, and it really stepped up with online learning. The synchronous learning online was truly effective, and the resources in the daily schedule were chosen with much thought. The teacher used online resources creatively, judiciously, and kept my child accountable. Bravo!”

How many courses am I allowed to take?

Full-time Roycemore Online students can take a full course load approved by their Division Head.

Students taking individual courses through Roycemore Online can take up to two courses maximum at one given time.

Are these course credits transferable to any institution?

Roycemore is accredited by the Independent School Association of the Central States (ISACS) and we are also members of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Lake Michigan Association of Independent Schools (LMAIS). We offer any student who successfully completes a Roycemore course to receive an official transcript that can be shared with other educational institutions for transfer credit consideration. It is up to the receiving school to decide which credits they will accept and we find that the vast majority of similarly accredited schools, as well as public schools, grant academic credit for classes taken at Roycemore. The course description and credit offered is the same for full-time and part-time Roycemore Online students.
