Greetings Campion Family,
The teachers and staff here at Campion Academy miss being able to see our students on campus, but we are thankful that we will be able to continue to provide a quality education online during this time. This new process will take us all some time to get adjusted to, and I’m sure there will be many kinks that have to be worked out. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we go through this together. We are preparing a new schedule of classes for students to follow online to keep up with their academics, beginning on Monday, March 30. Most importantly, our goal is to continue to lift up Christ through our classes and meet the spiritual needs of our students.
Online education has its own challenges and we will need the help of our students and parents to be successful. Please take note of the following information.
Students, you must be self-disciplined to finish this school year. You must dedicate yourself to the work before you. When participating in a live online class, it’s imperative that you remain "on task". It will be easy to become distracted, but you must focus your energies and attention to the rigor of education.
Parents, you can assist the education process by eliminating distractions at home, and by being available for your student if they have questions. Encourage your student as they learn to navigate this style of learning. Campion is a college-preparatory school and students who learn this style of education will be well equipped for higher education. Please spend time praying with your students specifically about their education.
Vice-Principal, Mr. Kast and Registrar, Sherry Hay are preparing a schedule of classes for you to follow. Live classes will be held on Zoom, and we will continue to use Schoology. You will need your iPad and connected to WIFI. Mr. Kast will email the new schedule and information on how you will attend classes, receive instruction and complete assignments by Friday.
The April ACT has been cancelled. If you are registered for the April 5 test, following is the information you need to reschedule:
You may change your registration to the June 13 or July 18 ACT test date at no cost to you. To change your registration, you must go to your ACT.org student account and request a test date change to either the June or July test date. You will be prompted to pay a registration fee to make this change, but that fee will be fully refunded within 3-5 business days. If you would like to test in June, please log into your account no later than May 8 to make the change. If you would like to test in July, please log into your account no later than June 19 to make the change. If neither date works for you, contact www.actstudent.org/contactus by June 19.
Guidance Counseling: Students must still accomplish the tasks Campion has outlined in the Guidance Counseling program. Please make an appointment with him by going to the Campion website under the Academics tab and selecting "Career Counseling". Mr. Marin is prepared to be a resource for you with the ACT test and getting you ready for the next steps you need to take.
Residence Hall Students: The Residence Halls are closed. While you are not able to collect your belongings at this time, they are safe, and will be available to you at a later date.
Again, we continue to be committed to a quality, Christ-centered education here at Campion. As a staff, we are praying for the health and safety of each of our students and families. We look forward to reuniting as soon as possible!
Principal, Campion Academy
