In the current great issues of life, COVID-19, we are indeed moving along.  All our students, in three countries are involved in remote education.

In California we now have two schools, Lighthouse Academy in Paradise and Pines Academy in Magalia, PLUS a new Preparatory Kindergarten at the Pines Academy campus. Get more INFO! Students are working in the classroom and remote with connections to teachers and each other via phone, online video, Whatsapp, and Google classroom. 

In Malaysia, our two Upward Learning Centre campuses, Kuala Lumpur and Selangor are connecting with their students via Google classroom, Zoom for live classes, video where internet is unstable, as well as Whatsapp and Kazoom for testing.  Personal contact with parents is important due to the inclusive nature of special needs students involved in general education classes.

In Kenya, St. Jude School, is affected mostly by the difficulty of teachers’ freedom to travel under the government restrictions.  Technology is missing and desperately needed.  Help is needed.  Please check out their story.  Click here.
