Mount Saint Charles Responds to the COVID-19 outbreak

The Mount family continues to learn with at-home, online classrooms, spiritual development, and social and emotional support

Want to make sure your students get the best education this fall?

We’re still enrolling for Fall 2020!

Responding with hope and education

The entire community at Mount Saint Charles Academy is responding to the coronavirus outbreak with an extraordinary response that puts students’ learning and social and emotional needs first.

Administrators and teachers alike made it possible for Mount to be one of the first schools in Rhode Island to launch online classrooms and learning to ensure the community’s safety. Our teachers, students, and staff have led the way in building a community that adheres to the Mount Saint Charles mission. That has continued into the start of the new school year.

Mount feels strongly that learning is a social process and that our school community is integral to our success. And while virtual schooling is not ideal, we have together developed a structure that allows to continue the learning process seamlessly.

To that end, the learning community at Mount has embraced four key pillars to ensure success, regardless of technology:

  • Learning requires individual effort and commitment
  • Academic integrity is essential
  • Respect of the learning environment is very important
  • There will be challenges, and it is our responsibility as a community to support each other in this process

For more about how proactively Mount has responded to support online learning, you can ready WPRI’s article here:  

Thanks to all of the teachers and leadership team for keeping our kids connected and focused. You really have impressed us. Thank you!

Staying connected to students through education

Our students have continued their education without missing a beat,  via both face-to-face online instruction and independent learning tasks and assignments. Mount students continue to start their day at their usual time, beginning with announcements and prayers before moving into their classrooms. By giving students a consistent schedule to follow, we are able to support our community’s academic needs while balancing the emotional and social needs of our students, their families, and our teachers and staff. The results speak for themselves – in the first week of online learning, our attendance rate for was greater than 99%!

Our classes are being taught in the face-to-face online environment offered by Google Classroom. Assignments are shared through the Mount portal – exactly the same way they would be under normal circumstances. And Wednesdays have been designated independent learning days – there is no direct teacher instruction, but teachers are available to help students as needed while they work on their assignments throughout the day.

Every single day that students learn counts as a school day, and count toward graduation requirements.

Mobilizing Students to Help

Mount students are no strangers to giving back, and they have stepped up again and again. Many have signed on to become Virtual Peer Assistants, and will be manning the Virtual Learning Center and helping other students with their learning and assignments.

Administrators, Teachers, and Staff Are Connected

We are keeping connected in similar ways to the way we would under normal circumstances. Our faculty meet-ups have moved online, and we now have remote office hours. Our administrators and teachers are also connecting with colleagues across the state, sharing their experiences and helping others adjust to an online learning environment.

Social-emotional support for all students

The social-emotional health is part of our everyday mission at Mount, and in the face of this crisis, there are unique challenges and opportunities. Mount school counselors have been proactive in developing tools and offering support to students and families, making sure that they are available all day and scheduling virtual appointments for those students who need them.

In addition, school counselors have assembled numerous resources that support a wide range of student needs. These resources are made available via the Mount student portal and students and families are notified directly when new resources are made available. These resources include:

  • tips about successful online learning
  • guidance for talking about and preparedness in the current crisis
  • updates about Mount

College Readiness

Despite the unique environment we find ourselves in, students and school counselors are continuing to work together toward preparing for college, particularly for juniors and seniors. That includes everything from SAT and AP testing preparation, college research and inquiries, and financial aid applications.

“It has been an amazing first day!! Thank you to the MSC staff and administration for being proactive and creative. The boys have been actively learning and I have heard collaboration and laughs all day. Thank you!!!”

MSC is proud to share our final Hilltopper edition for the 2020-2021 school year! Be on the lookout for an enhanced Hilltopper website next year. Click here to read: mschilltopper.weebly.com/Read Samira's farewell article below:Thank You, HilltopperTo see success born out of mere ambition is nothing short of astonishing. Just about a year ago, five eager writers logged onto a Google Meet with the ever-enthusiastic Mrs. Polseno to discuss how we could take this ambition and revive a once treasured staple of Mount. We had an abundance of ideas - revamping the website, adding more article categories, uploading podcasts - we just needed people with the same willingness to help us build something from the ground up. Most clubs and organizations at Mount have their routines and means of order. Contrastingly, The Hilltopper started from scratch. Our first edition of this school year, published in September, consisted of five articles. We were proud of it, but we knew there was still unfulfilled potential. After this initial publication, we had several faculty and staff members commending our work, and the appreciation we received caused The Hilltopper to gain its relevance back. Students of all different grades - from 6th graders to seniors - wanted to partake in the newspaper. We were building something special.By December we had about 20 writers on our team. Our ‘Meet the Writers’ page was growing by the month. Our publications began to exceed the bounds of school news; they included advice, political opinions, mental health articles, and poetry. Each writer had the liberty to write about anything, thus it became a creative outlet for many of us. We spent our meetings passionately expressing ideas for articles and supporting each other in our individual objectives. We even had writers attend a symposium for Yale University in February. I still think The Hilltopper has unfulfilled potential. I hope that with each subsequent school year, the paper will grow in staff and content. With this being my final article, I wanted to express my gratitude for every writer who helped us build this from essentially nothing. And of course, thank you to Mrs. Polseno for helping us convert our ambition into something successful.Samira Lakhiani ‘21 ... See MoreSee Less
