Students' Week at a Glance

Students are required to view six streamed video lectures each week: three History, two English, and one Culture.  These are recorded by Belhaven professors specifically for the High Scholars program.  Each lecture is 20-24 minutes in length, and are divided into 12-minute segments.  Power points, notes pages, and objectives are included. Students are expected to take notes and should allow 45-60 minutes to view and digest each lecture.

Homework such as reading and writing assignments are given for each subject on a weekly basis and separate grades for each subject are given.  

The lectures and homework prepare the students for participation in our live web conferences which we refer to as The Quad*.  These are lively on-mic discussions that help students make connections and solidify their thinking about the material they have been studying. The History Quad meets for 90 minutes each week.  English and Culture Quads meet back to back, with 60 minutes for English and 30 minutes for Culture.

The charts below will give you an idea of how the week might look.  Time management is important and students should spread the work out over the entire week, allowing about four hours per day for their High Scholars work. There is a lot of flexibility and each students schedule will reflect their individual and family needs.
