Teacher Directed Program

Teacher Directed Program

The Teacher Directed Program gives parents and students regular access to their teacher via email, phone, or Google Meets.  You decide if you meet daily or weekly with additional support between meets as necessary.  Trained teachers provide challenging core material using the Alberta Program of Studies.  Families can choose online or print based course delivery options to suit your family’s needs and circumstances.  Students are a part of an online community of like-minded students building relationships with each other and learning from one another.  Parents complete Educational Program Plans (EPP) for options classes with support and assistance from our facilitator.

Note: At this time we do not have a teacher directed program for grades 1-3 classes.
