Distance Learning

We are #RamsTogether

This past spring, our 100-acre campus grew to our students' kitchen tables, bedrooms, and backyards. Thanks to our creative teachers, motivated students, and agile technology, we deliver same intentional curriculum with the same high standards, whether on campus or at home.

What the community is saying about Distance Learning at MICDS

"Without MICDS to keep our daughter involved in school and in a great mindset, this experience could have been entirely different. She's using her brain, focusing on getting some physical activity, trying to be helpful around the house, and staying positive."

MICDS Parent & Alumna

"We had an excellent experience with distance learning. What was most impressive was that distance learning was pulled off seamlessly throughout the entire school. MICDS was able to guide the kids through positively with world-class technology and outstanding leadership. The teachers were amazing — they jumped in, adjusted to the situation, listened, and continued to adjust. I was extremely pleased that the kids continued to learn at the same accelerated level that MICDS teaches at."

Milva Finnegan
~Parent of Beasley Student, Middle Schooler, and Upper Schooler

"Our family is overwhelmingly impressed with how the school and its leadership reacted to this unprecedented situation. After talking with friends here and around the country, we haven't heard of other schools doing it better."

"In distance learning, we had the strength of our technology program in place so students were very comfortable with the many platforms we use, and it was a really easy transition for them to be able to access those from home."
