Supplemental Digital Learning Program


Finish strong with Forest Ridge

A program for girls in grades 4-8 who are currently enrolled in other schools in our community

Has distance learning left your family looking for opportunities to continue your daughter’s learning beyond the materials her school has provided? Our six-week Digital Supplement Distance Learning Program for girls currently enrolled in grades 4-8 offers students engaging enrichment opportunities to continue their learning while having fun with peers.

The program, which runs April 27, 2020-June 5, 2020, offers 9 hours of course work each week and utilizes a hybrid model, utilizing both synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous learning approaches to allow for flexibility while families balance many priorities at home. The program is designed to support students’ current schoolwork by providing extra materials and content in both the humanities and STEAM fields, as well as Forest Ridge’s leadership course. If your student is eager for more, check out our additional elective opportunities to round out her experience!

Please note, this opportunity is open only to students who do not currently attend Forest Ridge.

Elementary Track - Grades 4-6

Our elementary school option provides girls currently enrolled in grades 4, 5 and 6 with 9 hours of instruction a week in humanities, math and our signature leadership course.  Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, students will meet with one of their teachers and fellow classmates at 9:00 a.m. for at least 30 minutes of synchronous learning. During this time, students will be provided the context and instruction needed to sufficiently complete their course work at home. The remainder of their assignments will be completed asynchronously, either alone or in partners and groups. Teachers will remain available to students via email and video conference as needed in specified hours outlined by each teacher.
