Distance education refers to a separation between the student and the teacher. This separation can include time and/or distance. At the Concordia School District, we offer online (or web accessed) education. This form of education can be completed at the school during regular school hours or at home. Currently these classes are received through University of Central Missouri and State Fair Community College.When receiving college credit, the student is responsible for the incurred fees.
The colleges we are currently working with include University of Central Missouri (UCM), State Fair Community College (SFCC), and Missouri Valley College. These colleges and universities have allowed us to offer such classes as College Algebra, Public Speaking, English Composition, Psychology, and History of the US. When receiving college credit, the student is responsible for the incurred fees. These fees are generally about half price of a regular college course fee.
When taking any college distance education class, students need to make sure that the class will transfer to the college/university where they plan to seek a degree. Students around the country are now enrolling at colleges after graduation with one or two years already complete because they took their general studies courses while in high school.
Distance education has given our students another avenue for advanced/challenging courses without having the expenses of driving. Some have even made friends with students from rival or distant schools.
