​​​​​​​The academic leadership subgroups of the PRTF developed two models for teaching and learning for the 2020-21 academic year: Place-Based Teaching & Learning and Virtual Parallel Experience.

Virtual Parallel is not a separate distance or online learning program, but rather remote access to on-campus classroom instruction. Virtual Parallel students will Zoom into the classroom experience, track assignments, and complete assessments remotely. All students will have access to teachers for individual interaction and/or small group meetings.


Both models deliver a safe and robust curricular program to our students. We will continue to refine these models during the academic year, reflecting on and modifying our learning options regularly.

Based on the input of the Pandemic Response Task Force, School leadership, and the Board of Trustees, St. Anne’s School will delay the first day of instruction for Lower and Middle School students to Wednesday, September 9.
