History Of Argyll Centre

 

 Argyll Centre grew out of an experiment of the mid-1990s that asked the question, “What would happen if learning opportunities were made available to students, through technology, 24 hours a day, seven days a week?” A number of Edmonton Public Schools became engaged in trying to answer this question. By 1998, Argyll Centre had been created to amalgamate the learning that had taken place about online 24/7 learning as well as to become Edmonton Public Schools' center for home education services. LearnNet, one of Argyll's online delivery options, began serving students across the province of Alberta, with teachers acting as learning facilitators available to students as and when the students required help.

Since those early days, Argyll has become a leader in teacher directed home-based and parent directed homeschooling learning opportunities. LearnNet continue to serve a wide range of students across Alberta.

In addition Argyll has introduced Blended Programs, in which students have their parents as the primary educator for part of their learning and Argyll teachers as the primary educator for other parts.

Learning Partnerships are characteristic of Argyll's relationships with parents and students where parents and teachers share the responsibility for student education. 

Within the home education realm, Argyll's Natural Learning Community provides opportunities for students to engage in organic, experiential learning. Introduced in 2011-12, we now offer an online parent-directed learning community, which brings together our students, parents‌ and teachers across this beautiful province. This online community hosts a plethora of resources to help our parent educators with their homeschooling plans for their children.
