Teacher- directed learning is offered using online learning and teaching resources and tools in grades 1-12. Teacher-directed learning follows the Alberta Program of Studies in all subject areas.

This choice is best for students who wish to learn from home in a program where a certificated teacher:

  • develops the instructional path,
  • delivers the learning opportunities,
  • coaches and assesses the student.

Parents must be highly engaged partners in this learning path.

Delivery Options 

  • Elementary (Grades 1-6)
         - Learn Online
  • Junior High (Grades 7-9)
         - Live Online
  • High School (Grades 10-12)
         - LearnNet


Teacher-Directed Learning Embraces Learning Partnerships

Education in the Learning Partnership is truly a collaborative effort between the home and the school, combining the strengths of parent-student, student-teacher, and parent-teacher interaction. The degree to which parents are engaged in learning partnerships varies with:

  • the age of the student
  • the learning needs
  • the grade level

How do we distribute the learning partnership reponsibilities?
