Birmingham, Michigan- As one of twenty-two members schools and the only school in Michigan, The Roeper School kicked off its participation this fall in the Malone Schools Online Network (MSON). Roeper high school students can now delve deeper into their passions or explore a new field of inquiry through advanced online classes that supplement the school’s already challenging curriculum. Online classes, such as American Voice, American Speech: Word as Action from Anne Bradstreet to Donald Trump, Data Structures and Design Patterns, Comparative Ecosystems, and Advanced Applied Math Through Finance, take place in a digital classroom with state of the art video conferencing technology in the new Naas Learning Commons at the Birmingham Campus. Students participate during the school day in interactive seminars in real time with students from other Malone Schools throughout the country.
MSON teachers are experts in their fields, and are committed to excellence and personal relationships. Juniors and seniors who take MSON classes must demonstrate independence, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to succeed in a virtual discussion seminar setting.
Roeper’s Dean of Middle & Upper School Admissions and Academic Liaison to MSON, Jason McIntosh, comments, “MSON courses provide opportunities for students to discover and explore their passion with others who are similarly motivated, in practically any subject area beyond the AP level.” He adds that for Roeper students, “it’s not about earning credit, but about having the experience of connecting with interesting and compatible students who love learning as much as they do.”

The Roeper School is an independent coeducational day school for gifted children in metropolitan Detroit founded by George and Annemarie Roeper in 1941. The Roepers believed that all human beings have two central tasks: to come to understand themselves and to discover how they will contribute to the world. As a pre-K through 12th grade school, Roeper plays a formative role in the pursuit of these lifelong goals and offers a whole-child education for gifted students that guides them on the journey to becoming discerning, humane, engaged adults. With a dedication to diversity, democracy, and community service that dates to its founding, Roeper students and alumni endeavor to fulfill the school’s mission: Educating and inspiring gifted students to think as individuals and to engage as a community with compassion for each other and this world.
