Malone Schools Online Network Courses

MSON courses provide Winchester Thurston students with the opportunity to take special topic courses offered by select private schools around the country. Courses use a blended approach, combining synchronous, real-time video conferencing seminars delivered in high-definition classroom set-ups, with asynchronous instruction such as recorded lectures and exercises students complete outside of the class. Courses are taught by faculty from the Malone Scholars Schools and the Stanford Online High School. Each course has a minimum of six and a maximum of 16 students, allowing for a highly interactive, virtual discussion seminar setting. Courses meet twice each week for an hour and are either one semester (September through December or January to mid-May) or year-long.


  • Attendance in class is required: Students may not miss more than five class periods in a semester. However, students can login to their class from home if they have the required technology.
  • Students who enroll in an MSON class that overlaps with the time of a WT class must receive permission from their WT instructors to leave his/her class early or come to class late.
  • Students are responsible for carefully reading the course syllabus and policies for attendance, assignment requirements, due dates, and grading policies.
  • All enrollments for MSON courses will require approval from the Director of Upper School and the Director of eLearning.
  • MSON courses cannot be used to meet departmental core requirements.
  • Courses and grades earned are listed on Winchester Thurston transcripts.
