WHY AN ONLINE SCHOOL?
Astor International School was established in 2019 on a philosophy of enquiry-based and individualised education. Whilst this philosophy has not changed, we recognise that the circumstances around us are changing, and quickly.
Digital transformation is rapidly increasing the choices that are available to businesses and consumers in society. It’s also becoming a source of competitive advantage for individuals and societies. Therefore, we acknowledge that children need to (and are expected to) understand digital technology. And we know that some parents want this choice for their children too. The wrenching changes resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic continue to push things in this direction.
Online schooling is a convenient alternative to traditional education. It can be done from any part of the world and from the comfort of your own home. It helps to develop independent learners. This is why we have launched Astor Online Academy.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Astor Online Academy has been built to meet the needs of these groups
Some families want to actively participate in the education of their children in the home environment.
CHILDREN UNABLE TO ATTEND SCHOOL
Sometimes, because of health, learning or other issues parents would prefer their children did not routinely attend a physical school environment.
HIGH-TRAVEL, NOMAD OR REMOTE WORKING FAMILIES
The explosion in remote-working and digital nomad work practices has created a great need for quality online education that can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
HIGH NEED STUDENTS
Some children require individualised attention to support their learning, using a combination of professional teaching and at-home support from an adult eg parent or tutor.
Some families prefer their children to minimise the risks of catching Covid-19 by avoiding public spaces. Or they might wish to delay or avoid vaccination requirements.
CHILDREN STRUGGLING WITH HOME-BASED LEARNING
The Coronavirus pandemic has required many children to quickly migrate from a face-to-face school environment to home-based learning.
