Our courses inspire students to fall in love with learning by encouraging curiosity about the world around them and helping them develop an informed voice. Students explore real challenges affecting their communities and design solutions as scientists, technologists, and innovators. Thematic content incorporates financial literacy, digital citizenship, and interpersonal skills to prepare every learner to be a leader in tomorrow’s workforce and ambassadors in their communities.
Our model includes three key stages of investigation.
Inquiry-based instruction supported with 21st century technology allows learning tailored to distinct learning needs, interests and aspirations of individual students. Each student learns to ask guiding questions and pursue the answers, becoming self-directed learners.
Situate learning in community
Take students out of the classroom and into the city. Industry partners can expose students to a wide range of jobs and career prospects, discuss practicalities and possibilities, and challenge students to question their assumptions about the world around them. This allows students to navigate the city beyond their neighborhoods and acquire skills needed for post-secondary success.
Students are given the freedom to demonstrate mastery using their own voice and chosen medium. Instead of standardized multiple choice tests and essay exams, students communicate through digital portfolios, podcasts, multimedia presentations, and research projects. Collaborative or individual, our courses allow for individual learning styles and interests to shine through.
