Can I attend the online campus if I live near an existing campus?
No. Although we are very confident in the level of growth that happens through the online campus, we believe that the onsite campus experience is optimal. Because we are committed to only providing the best possible formation, only students outside driving distance from an existing campus can attend the online campus.
What technology is required to attend the online campus?
Each student needs to have a computer with access to the internet with speeds that are capable of streaming high definition video. Your computer needs to have a functioning webcam that is capable of clearly broadcasting your video and audio. Most of your experience will happen through zoom videoconferencing which will be available to you for free.
What kind of spiritual support is needed?
Encounter School Online Campus believes in creating disciples who are passionate about loving God, loving their neighbor, and loving themselves well (Mk 12:31). To thrive outside of our virtual classroom environment, students are not only responsible to devote time to prayer, study, and online small groups, but they are also responsible to take bold steps in pursuing spiritual support and proper self-care.
Our online platform is not a substitute for one-to-one support but works in partnership with the kind of direct connection, conversation, and encouragement that happens best between a student and a local spiritual mentor.
Spiritual mentorship doesn’t necessarily mean seeking out a trained spiritual director. It simply requires finding a trusted, joy-filled person of faith who has an awareness of the ebbs and flows of the spiritual life and wants to see you reach your God-given potential.
Is the cost of the Encounter Conference covered in the tuition?
Yes. Your admission to the Encounter Conference is covered in your tuition.
Can I be considered to start a satellite campus if I first attend the online campus?
Yes! Our greatest desire is that each Encounter campus would be a powerful agent of transformation for their geographic regions. If God has given you a heart and drive to see others empowered to do the works of Jesus, then you will be well positioned to start an Encounter satellite campus in your region. You can learn more about starting satellite campuses here: https://encounterschool.org/satellite/
Can I attend the online campus if I live in Europe?
Yes! You must be able to speak and interact in English. On the application, European students should select the 1:00pm EST option on Thursday (18:00 WET and 19:00 CET) for your Encounter dynamic zoom room.
If I'm a non-Catholic Christian, can I apply?
Yes! Our applicants come to us from all walks of life: college students, working parents, church leaders, grandparents, laypeople, religious sisters, priests, and Christians from various denominations. Although we teach all content with fidelity to the Catholic faith, we honor and welcome all Christians and disciples from all denominations who are passionate about Jesus and growing in the supernatural to apply and continue their walk with us!
I have a question that isn't asked. Where can I go for more help?
We know you may have tons of questions. Visit our full FAQ page here!
