Maumee Valley is a member of the Hybrid Learning Consortium (HLC), founded and directed by The Barstow School. The HLC is a collective of independent schools around the world that develop high quality online courses for Upper School students. The Hybrid Learning Consortium features small classes (maximum of 17 students) that allow students and teachers to interact and develop the type of relationship that we value in our on-campus classes. The HLC connects students across the country and the globe while allowing them to focus on their individual interests and passions. Students have the opportunity to learn side-by-side with students from Colorado to Georgia and from Australia to Germany.
We recognize that by the time Maumee Valley students reach the Upper and Middle Schools, they are well-rounded and sophisticated learners. Now, the goal is to guide them to explore and study topics that interest and excite them. The Hybrid Learning Consortium allows us to offer a greater variety of courses than we could ever dream of providing here on campus.
The HLC allows students to take courses in a variety of fields, such as creative writing, engineering, entrepreneurship, and sports broadcasting. In addition to offering a range of classes, the HLC offers nearly 20 Advanced Placement classes and a selection of honors classes that speak highly to the quality of the program. Individual training, campus visits, online faculty meetings, webinars and an annual HLC Symposium each June are offered to participating schools.
Maumee Valley students who engage in the high-quality, intellectually stimulating on-line environments provided by the HLC will be even better prepared for college than most of their peers. We pride ourselves in being the first independent school in the region to participate in this program.
