Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Social-Enterprise: Real Life is Our Curriculum.
A Unique Self-Directed Program
Instead of a school with age-defined and delineated classrooms, the Centre will be a mixed aged learning community with leading edge equipment and expert teachers and facilitators, catering to the following areas of interest:
In addition, the Centre will offer:
The Centre will give learners age 5 to 18 choice, full choice, as to how they spend their day. They will be surrounded by opportunities to do real things and naturally build foundational skills in a community that emphasizes the the joy of learning.
Preparation for Life
Standard K-11 schooling is designed to prepare students for Grade 12. It is not the content and curriculum that matters in the earlier years as much as it is the preparation. So why not let kids prepare in a way that works for them?
The Centre will pilot an alternate pathway for Free Learners to prepare for adult life and, if they choose, to excel in grade 12 and the diploma exams. In addition, the self-directed pathway will more effectively position them for productive participation in the economy while ultimately engaging in a healthy and active adult life.
