Open the door of opportunity, and Columbus Academy students will make the most of it.
In May of 2010, Columbus Academy was selected to receive a $2 million endowment from the Malone Family Foundation to provide scholarships for high-achieving students with financial need (currently, 28% of our students receive tuition assistance). As the only Malone Scholarship School in Ohio at the time, Academy joined 30 other distinctive schools across the nation to have been honored with the prestigious award. Over the past decade, Malone Scholars from Columbus Academy have matriculated to Princeton, Cal Tech, Georgetown, Penn and Duke to name just a few of their college choices.
This year, Academy is the first Ohio school to join the Malone Schools Online Network, the premier online education program for independent schools. Starting next fall, Academy juniors and seniors will have the opportunity to take intensive and varied courses such as Forensic Science, Advanced Applied Math through Finance, Genetics & Genomics, Environmental Bioethics, Philosophy in Pop Culture, Einstein's Relativity & the Evolution of the Quantum Model and much more.
These real-time seminars are set on a college-style schedule and allow teachers and students from across the United States to develop lasting bonds across geographical divides. MSON joins the best of independent school education with the latest video conferencing technology to chart new territory in online learning. Students selected for these advanced courses hone their abilities to work independently, communicate proactively and manage their time wisely.
