Online Learning

Students enrolled at Marianapolis have an opportunity to continue their courses of study in the Marianapolis Summer Session. Participants take online summer classes in order to meet graduation requirements on time, to complete course prerequisites in advance, or to study a particular discipline at an accelerated rate.

"The Summer Session Online is an exciting program to enhance a student's education beyond the typical calendar year. Students can participate from anywhere in the world for a truly unique learning experience.”Jane Hanrahan, Director of Online Learning

2018 marks the sixth year of the innovative Summer Session Online program. Students gain unprecedented access to Marianapolis faculty, curricula, and instruction – from anywhere around the world. The SSO’s blended curriculum model facilitates education through the virtual classroom as well as interpersonal collaboration. Non-native English speaking students also make tremendous progress in our intensive English Language program throughout June and July. 


Session I: June 25 - July 18
Session II: July 19 - August 11


Online classes, group meetings, and office hours will be scheduled during weekdays and students will have assignments that will need to be completed during the weekends.

Students may sign up for a maximum of two modules per term. Students may elect to audit a course; auditors take the course pass/fail (vs. for a numerical grade). Students who are required to take a course due to a failure during the 2017-18 school year may not opt to audit the module. 

Advancement

Advance Credit courses may be taken in place of courses in the regular academic year. Grades from advanced credit courses will be added to the official transcript and credit from this online module is equivalent to credit earned during the academic year. Students may wish to access these courses in order to create additional free time in their schedule.

Enrichment

Students who are looking to refine skills in select categories or maximize college preparation potential may seek to join these non-credit summer classes.

Reinforcement

These classes are available to support students who struggled academically in a subject during the prior academic year and must complete coursework for academic credit or for those who aim to maintain skills and retain concepts over the summer months.
