The Online & Print program allows flexibility in learning.
This program, based out of St. Anne Academic Centre, seeks to enhance learning opportunities for high school students by offering students the option of taking a variety of subjects, at the high school level, through an online or print environment.
The learning platform Desire 2 Learn (D2L) is used to facilitate interaction between the student, the teacher and curricular outcomes and can be accessed from anywhere a computer and internet connection exist. The flexibility this gives students in completing their coursework provides a freedom that is necessary if students have hectic schedules, cannot fit all courses into their timetable or just wish to take a course in a non-traditional format.
An online or print course provides students with the same learning opportunities and the same expectations found in a regular classroom except that the classroom is accessed through the internet or print booklets. The skills students develop while engaging in self-directed learning will greatly enhance their overall learning strategies and skills.
For current students, registration requests are made through the student’s current home school. Students are advised to first speak with their parents about this alternate learning opportunity and then to see their school counsellor.
For others wishing to return to school, students must have previously completed at least three years of high school and be under 20 years of age by September 1 of the current academic year to be eligible to attend St. Anne Academic Centre for upgrading purposes and/or online courses.
