Seamless Online Learning Environment

first in the nation 

Digital Learning environment

In 2013, St. Joseph by-the-Sea became the first high school in the nation to launch a Seamless Online Learning Environment (S.O.L.E.) providing students with 100% digital online learning.  The system consists of Student iPads, smart classrooms, access to Canvas Learning Management System, and ExamSoft.

Students no longer need textbooks as they are stored in their ‘digital locker’ on their iPads.  Canvas allows students to access their unique course programs and course materials, and ExamSoft allows our students to take all of their tests on their iPads and get instant grades and feedback.

In addition, there is no need for students to worry about snow days, sick days, or anything else that could interrupt classwork as Sea was also the first high school in the nation to host Virtual Days. A Virtual Day is conducted completely online with teacher led instruction and student particpation. 

Since implementation, we’ve found that the average GPA has increased by nearly 3 points due to students be more organized and efficient.

Sea iPads

All students receive Sea iPads, which is included in tuition. The devices are updated every two years to ensure students have the latest technology.

Canvas Learn

Canvas is the learning management system which serves as the primary interface between students and teachers. It’s also used by numerous colleges and universities across the country.

Smart Classrooms

All classrooms are air conditioned, outfitted with the highest speed Wi-Fi and equipped with Smart Boards. This makes it possible for in person or Virtual Day learning.

ExamSoft Testing

Sea was the first high school in the country to leverage ExamSoft Testing for its students. Tests are taken on the iPad and instant feedback and scores are given.

Tech Deck: On Site Tech Support For Students

Other schools allow students to bring their own device, which is great until it stops working.  At Sea, our Tech Deck professionals are on site to handle any issues that may arise and get students back to work immediately.  Remember, when you bring your own, you’re on your own!
