Vermont diocese to open on-line Catholic high school
February 01, 2016
The diocese of Burlington, Vermont, plans to open an on-line Catholic high school for the next academic year, the National Catholic Register reports.
The new school-- which will offer courses through the internet, without a classroom building-- is only the 2nd such institution established by a Catholic diocese in the US. The Archdiocese of Miami, Florida, opened an online school in 2013.

It is refreshing to see the message of Our Lord to "go and teach (make disciples of) all nations" implemented in innovative ways. The Catholics who are ignorant of "The Faith" because of the barriers by Catholic school tuition and diocesan bureaucracies are legend. Hopefully costs can be reduced and home schooling encouraged as many dioceses adopt innovative techniques.
