When the coronavirus invaded us all in the spring of 2020, the Eaton community rose to the challenge and sprang to action.
Marshaling our collective ingenuity and creativity, and utilizing technology resources that we had been employing at Eaton for years, we established and implemented a robust and highly effective live video conferencing instruction model.
Using tools such as Zoom, Skype, Google Meet, Google Hangouts, and Google Classroom, teachers and students in all of our programs — both small group and 1:1 — have been able to keep learning alive virtually, and virtually without interruption. Students and teachers meet in real time, sharing documents and files over the internet.
The coronavirus pandemic certainly gave new meaning to the old adage, “Necessity is the mother of invention”.
Old Normals have given way to New Normals, and live video conferencing instruction has become one of Eaton’s New Normals. Live video conferencing instruction has become a new tool in our toolbox — one we can and will utilize, as appropriate, long after the social distancing associated with the pandemic has become a thing of the past.
Certainly nothing replaces the rigor and quality of one-to-one classroom instruction with a teacher. However, video conferencing (either 1:1 or in small groups) is an excellent tool to keep learning going when circumstances render face-to-face learning either difficult or unviable.
Eaton’s goal has always been to break down the barriers to learning — to offer “Education Solutions for Every Mind, Every Age”. With our virtual instruction model using video conferencing, we have effectively eliminated yet another barrier.

Praise for Eaton’s Live Video Conferencing Instruction
We’ve been extremely impressed with how your teachers have gone above and beyond for our daughter. She transitioned so easily to virtual learning. Thank you for giving her a smooth and stress free end to her senior year. Eaton was an excellent choice for us….so grateful.
The team at Eaton could not have been more amazing and supporting during this challenging time. You guys pivoted and adjusted with grace – I have no doubt it was not as easy as you guys made it look, so thank you.
Eaton is doing an unbelievably amazing job keeping the students busy, excited, engaged and all around happy to do school. I can’t be more happy about my choice to send my daughter there! Amazing school!!!!!!
We want to let you know how very impressed we are with the way you have handled this unprecedented situation!! You have made the transition seamlessly, and I know it has been much, much work for all of you!! Thank you so very much!!
Thank you all for making school possible. My son is definitely a willing participant and has enjoyed getting to touch base, in a new way, with his fav teachers and fellow students.
I was unaware that so many other states were so unprepared and have just canceled school for the rest of the semester. Hats off to Eaton for being cutting edge!!
The Eaton staff has done an amazing job during this crisis. My son is enjoying his virtual classroom sessions and diligently working on his assignments.
Thank you all so much for all you do. I’m proud to say that my son is an Eaton student!
