Aloha, My name is Matthew Eftink, I am an Administrator for St. Joseph High School in Hilo, Hawaii. We are a small Catholic School with an enrollment of about 80 students, a majority of our student population is below the national poverty line. So for our school, it is very important that we are cost conscientious while still striving to give an exemplary educational experience. This year with the pandemic, we have seen a reduction in our student body and an increase in our students needing financial assistance. Our school was in jeopardy of closing. We embarked on an effort to find an educational model that could solve all of these challenges. For us, the best solution was a hybrid learning model, where students would come to school for live lessons 3 days a week, and virtual classes 2 days a week.
We evaluated several companies and ultimately we selected Catholic Virtual as a partner in our students’ education. I use the word partner very specifically. What we have found is that Catholic Virtual’s administration and faculty are as invested in our students’ success as we are. We are also able to offer over 15 new classes we have never been able to offer. These were classes like Anatomy or AP Environmental Science, courses the kids were interested in, but we did not have the expertise in the faculty to teach. As far as cost savings go, we were able to reduce overall expenditures by over 30%, mostly in faculty salaries, but also in the cost of books and other overhead items.
In short with the help of the partnership with Catholic Virtual we were able to deliver more content to students at a reduced cost, and without a drop in quality. For us, at St. Joseph, this was the difference between staying open for another year or having the opportunity to stay open for another generation.
