The MCAS Correspondence School is designed for self-paced personal studies and is independent of the College. Courses are centered on self-regulated reading, guided assignments, and examinations. As there are no set class times or teachers, enrollment in the School provides the ability for one to study on one’s own but not alone. Each course is overseen by mentors who corresponds with each student on their assignments and shared impressions, driving them to go deeper in content and farther in their understanding. Additionally, courses are enriched with an online platform that includes related videos, articles, and blogs as well as a discussion board to share one’s thoughts and insights with others.
Enrollment with MCAS Correspondence School is $15(USD) each month, allowing students to complete courses according to their own schedule within the minimal time frame stated. This flexibility creates a fluid independent education where individuals can choose a new course at any time of the year.
Courses can be taken ala carte or in the recommended Path. Each path consists of four levels with the fourth level consisting of a final thesis. Certificates of completion will be awarded when a course, level, and/or path is successfully completed. The pathways are listed below.
MCAS is a non-accredited, non-degree granting institution.
