Archdiocese of Chicago – eLearning
Catapult Learning, in partnership with the Archdiocese of Chicago Schools, are offering an online school (eLearning) to support students who are not able to re-enter their school building due to various challenges.
Highly qualified online educators will teach core online classes, lead enrichment and educational activities, and connect students to their Catholic school community. Catapult’s team will partner with the Archdiocese to follow grade-level scope and sequences so students can remain academically aligned with their peers.
All parents interested should contact their school directly for enrollment.
This program option will be available to students from kindergarten through eighth grade. The eLearning day will be comprised of teacher-led online lessons, as well as self-guided non-virtual lessons to allow for a combination of screen time and independent work. Enrichment activities such as STEM, robotics, mindfulness activities/breaks, Social-Emotional Learning, and virtual field trips, will also be a part of your child/children’s learning.
Catapult will manage enrollment through phases during the school year and will have additional opportunities to enroll every 60 days.
Catapult will provide the following curriculum and materials:
- Courses: Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies, and Enrichment such as STEM, Robotics, Virtual Fieldtrips, and Social-Emotional Learning
