Uninterrupted Learning at Abelard:
an ongoing commitment to education
Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, The Abelard School remains committed to delivering our robust and fulfilling curriculum.
We have always seen education as a lifelong pursuit, and although teaching remotely is not our preferred form of instruction, we feel remarkably fortunate to be able to continue to share our love of learning with our student body.
We are so proud of our students, who have not only continued to work hard, but some have even produced their best work of the year, proving that the Abelard thirst for knowledge and fulfillment remains intact!
Third Term, March 30-June 18, 2020
Abelard began online classes on March 30th, and since then we have been successfully employing Zoom to deliver our traditional seminar-based classes. We are fortunate that our small class sizes allow us to proceed more or less as usual, despite the change in delivery: as well as receiving instruction, the students still have ample opportunity to ask and answer questions, and to offer their perspectives and insights. We are also still laughing and sharing our love of knowledge, and of life.
Our online school day runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the addition of a twenty minute break between classes to allow the students to consolidate and review independently, to prepare for their next class, and to stretch and move about.
