Distance Learning

Purpose 

The purpose of the Kenilworth Distance Learning Program is to ensure the well-being of our students and continue to prepare them for the next level of study. Distance Learning provides students with tools to fill in learning gaps, extend learning beyond what is possible in a school setting, and provide a sense of connection and normalcy during this difficult time.
