Malone Schools Online Network
“The MSON program is the best way for all high school students to learn material outside of the typical classroom. Their wide range of subjects, from quantum mechanics to creative writing - give something for everyone, and the friendly instructors make sure that everyone can take away what they want from the experience.”
Seth Brunner, TPS Student, Class of '23
Trinity Prep is the only school in Florida belonging to the Malone Schools Online Network (MSON), a unique consortium of 20 independent schools that offer courses in which students and teachers engage with each other online in real time, rather than in a traditional classroom setting. When a collection of excellent schools uses technology in such a meaningful way, the schools can offer courses together that each wouldn’t be able to offer alone.
Classes take place through virtual seminars, video conferencing, and recorded lectures. Students meet in our high-definition, state-of-the-art classroom and are taught by Malone School Network educators, including our own Trinity Prep faculty and Stanford University professors.
Students (grades 11 & 12 only) can continue curriculum taught at Trinity Prep with multivariable calculus or advanced computer programming with MSON, while those who want to explore a subject area not yet taught at Trinity Prep (Arabic, meteorology, art history) can do so by joining others with similar interests across the country.

MSON Course Highlights
Honors Organic Chemistry
This semester course will provide useful background information in organic chemistry by covering topics not typically found in high school chemistry courses. The course will give insight into the importance of the chemistry of carbon compounds to our daily lives.
This course introduces students to historical and modern astronomy. Topics include the nature of light, the atom, telescopes, and orbits. In addition, students will learn about the life cycles of stars, including an introduction to black holes.
Honors Genetics & Genomics
This course will emphasize classic Mendelian genetics, molecular genetics, and population and evolutionary genetics. The topics include structure and function of genes (and the genome), biological variation, and gene regulations.
Arabic I & II
In this full-year course, students learn Modern Standard Arabic, the language of formal speech and most printed materials in the Arab-speaking world. Students will learn to read and write the Arabic alphabet and will develop beginning proficiency in the language.
Diversity in a Global Comparative Perspective
This course examines the ways our human family has sought to create, marshal, contest, and maintain identities through culture and relations of power. The course critically engages race, class, and gender, understanding that culture serves as an important backdrop against which these identities emerge.
Honors Art History: Sculpture
A culture's artworks reflect its hopes, fears, and dreams and provide a snapshot into the human experience. This semester-long course will introduce students to the great artistic traditions, from its prehistoric beginnings to the present day, through a lens of sculptures depicting the human body.
App Design and Development
In this course students will learn the app development process from the idea stage through prototyping and testing to final product delivery. The course emphasizes creating flexible data structures, code management, usability, and efficient coding skills.
Honors Medical Bioethics
This course will focus on such cases as medical practice, medical research and development, and health care policy, examined through a wide array of case studies, gathered from sources in literature, journalism, and film. The academic study of ethics examines how we make the decisions.
