Rigor Courses

Rigor courses are part of a new interdisciplinary program that gives students the opportunity to gain a solid foundation in philosophy and theology and literature. Students will meet once a week with a teacher in an Adobe Connect online classroom. Each week there will be a reading assignment, a live discussion, and questions to answer in writing. There will also be papers assigned and a final exam each semester. Some classes also include a weekly recorded lecture. See individual course descriptions in the attached flyer for prices, book lists, and more information. Students who are not enrolled in MODG can enroll here. Enrolled students should enroll through our family site!
