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!!!”

Testimonial“When I came to Mount in 7th-grade, I knew very few people. However, the Fine Arts Department welcomed me with open arms. I’ve always loved art and music, but what made me truly love this department were the educators that accompanied it. The teachers in each division – band, art, dance, chorus, theater – are very passionate and art extremely enthusiastic, calling each student to experience the same excitement and joy that comes along with the arts. They teach the most important lesson: It’s not the destination that matters, but the journey that you take and the people you meet along the way.” – Olivia Charbonneau, Class of 2019 ...

Students heard from Ms. Beauvais, their school counselors, and Mr. Burke. Students then participated in a "getting to know each other just a little bit better" activity to find out what activities and things they have in common. Elbow high fives and smiles were shared by all! It was so nice to see the class of 2027 all together. #MountPride ... See MoreSee Less

"The Last Performance" written by MSC English teacher, Richard Lawrence. During the many years that I have been teaching English, I have always made an effort to share my love for the theater with my students. So it has been a ritual with me every school year - to find something on stage that I thought would excite my students and take them on a field trip. I would always try to make it a complete day - in what I called “the travelling classroom.” That would involve the theater experience itself and then usually a trip to a local fast food restaurant.So last school year ( 2019- 2020) was no different. I searched for what I thought would be the best fit. What would connect? What would inspire? Eventually I settled on an adaptation of Dickens' novel THE TALE OF TWO CITIES which was being offered by Trinity. I knew that the story would pull them in, and I was absolutely sure that the Trinity players would do the same.The date we had secured was March 12, 2020. As always it would be a complete day out of the school building. We would leave during the first period, get transported down to Providence, make our way into the theater, enjoy the performance, and stay for a round of discussion that typically followed the day time performances. My plan also called for a stroll through the city, lunch in the food court at Providence Place Mall, and then, after having discovered that most of my students had never been inside of their own state Capitol Building, I also arranged for a tour. It really is amazing how exciting teenagers can get with the prospect of “day out of school.”But as the day came closer, I reminded them that the “classroom” would follow them. On that Thursday morning, we were en route to the theater when my cell phone rang. It was the educational director from Trinity calling to find out if we were still coming. “Of course,” I replied, “We are on our way.” He went on to explain that on that day all of the other schools booked were from neighboring Massachusetts and because of the fear of the pandemic and orders from their governor, they had cancelled. He told me that my thirty AP Lit. English students would be the only ones in attendance. And so when we were given front row seats and then treated to a compelling performance. We had the entire theater to ourselves. In the Trinity way of extending their performances out to the audience, the actors performed in the aisles. They performed behind us. They performed alongside us. They embraced their small audience and brought us into the story. The post play discussion was emotional. That was a certain feeling among the actors that the mayor was going to put a pause on such public gatherings. Some of them cried as they spoke to us about the play and their love to perform in front of live audiences.As we filed our way out of the theater on that day, we found the streets of Providence empty and eerily quiet. We passed up on our plans to eat at the Mall and traded for a brown bag picnic in the foyer of the Capitol Building. So yes...it was the last live theater performance at Trinity, and more than likely, was also the last live tour given at the State House. Because the next day was Friday, March 13. That, in fact, would be the last time that I would actually see any of my students in person that school year. When the final day of remote classes arrived in late May, I sent my students two photos I had taken back on March 12 - one while they were sitting in the theater and another while they were sitting on the floor eating lunch in the foyer of the State Capitol Building With those photos I sent along the words of the late poet Mary Oliver: “Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this, too, was a gift.”With that I assured them that I believed that they would all recover and come back stronger than ever. And that included the Trinity players who I knew, like the mythical bird Phoenix, would “rise from the ashes” and be back again soon, performing live in front of packed audiences. ...

Mount Saint Charles Academy is proud to announce that Abigail Champagne ‘22 has won First Place in the Women in Construction RI 2020-2021 Design Drafting Competition. Her plans will now be forwarded to the regional competition. This is the second time in two years that a student from Br. Marty’s architecture classes has been awarded first place in this prestigious competition. Br. Marty took what used to be a mechanical drawing class in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s and told the principal at the time, “Give me one year and I can turn this into an architecture class.” Well done, Br. Marty and congratulations Abigail! #MountPride ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday Mrs. Breault’s 8th grade classes learned about the differences between communism, socialism, and capitalism as they prepare to read Animal Farm by George Orwell. Instead of listening to a lecture and taking notes they played “Rock, Paper, Scissors” with PEZ candies as their currency. The number of PEZ candies students started with depended on whether Mrs. Breault was demonstrating capitalism, socialism, or communism. How many candies they ended up with had much to do with the form of government for that round. Students who started out with no prior knowledge left with a lesson they will probably remember forever. ❤️💙 ... See MoreSee Less

MSC Virtual Career Interviews welcomes Cole Sydnor on Tuesday March 9th from 7:00PM to 7:30 PM. Cole is the YouTube star of Role With Cole and Charisma. "Since the start of our relationship we've received a lot of questions about how we make things work as not only an interracial couple, but an interabled one as well. There's certainly differences, and despite them we have a great time, all the time! We started this vlog to bring people into our lives, our relationship, to answer some questions about how we navigate the world with some of the behind-the-scenes stuff people typically don't see, and hopefully raise awareness surrounding accessibility and dating in a wheelchair. You'll quickly see in our episodes that we're all about positivity, inclusion, and keeping a great attitude no matter your circumstances, so if that's what you're into, you're in the right place!" ...

“When I came to MSC in 7th-grade, I knew very few people. However, the Fine Arts Department welcomed me with open arms. I’ve always loved art and music, but what made me truly love this department were the educators that accompanied it." – Olivia Charbonneau, Class of 2019
