College Counseling

Bryn Mawr Online offers live, synchronous classes Monday through Thursday. Fridays are reserved for office hours with teachers, special events and speakers, or for students to pursue interests of their own. We offer two enrollment options: full-time or part-time, allowing students to learn with us in a diploma-awarding program or select courses of interest that may not be available to them in their geographic area.

An advocate for students.
A partner with families.

During their sophomore year, every student is assigned a College Counselor to guide, advocate, and support students and families through the college admissions process. Bryn Mawr Online families are also invited to attend a range of College Counseling events and workshops throughout the year.

Meet Mallory Pladus

English Teacher

Where do you live?
Lancaster, Pennsylvania

What do you like about teaching online?
I like the small school environment, the ambitious students BMOS attracts, and the flexibility learning and teaching online affords students and faculty.

What do you like to do when you’re NOT in school?
Hike, travel, play frisbee, and spend time on the Jersey Shore.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Japan. My dad is half Japanese, and there is a rumor in our family that he and my aunt relinquished property rights to a small portion of a mountain in Japan. I’d like to go see that mountain.

Best way to spend a Saturday?
Reading outside.

What do you want students to remember about you?
I want them to remember that I did my best to make literature open up for them in surprising, intriguing ways and that I cared about their ideas.

Personal catchphrase?
“Let’s reflect on this.”

Who inspires you?
Writers I love: James Baldwin, Marilynne Robinson, Louise Erdrich, to name a few.

What activity/class have you enjoyed the most through BMOS (and why)?
The poet Sarah Ali visited our English 9 and 10 classes to discuss her poem about animal roadkill. The students asked great questions, and she gave thoughtful answers. We broached a topic that often feels too intractable to talk about.
