regularly with the class teacher to ensure the student
stays on track.

specifically for online instruction in 9-12 which allows
us to bring the classroom to any student with access
to an Internet connection.
Under the direction of our teachers, students access
and complete coursework online, as well as submit some
assignments by mail. Students, teachers, and family
members communicate through our own secure email
system, on dedicated message boards or by telephone.
Our online grade book also allows students and parents or
guardians to track their progress at any time of night or
day and make sure they’re staying on course, and families
are able to monitor students in all grades within the
household through one convenient system.

Roman Catholic high schools, is proud to offer online
learning options for both full and part-time students. Your
student has all the benefits of being part of the JSerra
