Join Our Online Community of Scholars

Every learner - or scholar as they are known at 279Online - is entitled to experiences that accommodate their wide-ranging and personalized needs. To learn best, each scholar needs to be seen, heard and nurtured - and that can happen anywhere where there’s an intersection of passionate, inclusive teachers and eager scholars. This perfectly describes the 279Online community. We live at this intersection, where we adapt learning to the needs and desires of each scholar, using every tool and idea available to foster a sense of wonder and love of learning.
