Last year, Evansville Day School entered into a partnership with the Hybrid Learning Consortium (HLC). Founded at Barstow School in Kansas City, HLC is a growing “collective of independent schools around the world developing online courses.” Through a broad catalog of blended and online courses, students benefit from small classes, independent school rigor, global connections, and preparation for distance learning, which is increasingly utilized in college and beyond.
The program has been a big success with Day School students taking courses such as American Sign Language, Chinese Language and Culture, and many other subjects not offered as part of our current curriculum.
Hybrid Learning Consortium is excited to announce four-week mini-courses for Middle School students. These online classes include videos, readings, discussion threads, projects, collaborative activities, and online meetings with the HLC teacher and students from partner schools. Courses include coding, game design, forensics, study skills, food science, the world of sports, and more. Additional information on Middle School mini-course schedules, costs, and selections is available on page 3 here.
Hybrid Learning Consortium is also currently enrolling for summer, fall, spring, and yearlong courses. The course catalogs for Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12 are accessible from our HLC webpage.
Thanks to a grant from the Vectren Foundation, Evansville Day School commits a significant portion of HLC course registration fees, and tuition assistance is available for students who need additional support. Contact Heather Heck, HLC Coordinator, to discuss HLC course options, registration fees and processes, and to complete the HLC Consent Form. The preferred date to finalize registration is June 1.
