Mission & Vision
- All students can be successful
- All students have a right to an education
- That learning rates, styles and abilities vary from individual to individual
- That learning takes place in multiple settings
We believe all students have the ability to achieve their educational goals and succeed as contributing citizens of today and tomorrow.
While providing a more flexible approach to instruction, academic success is the primary focus of the Learning Centres. The ultimate goal of the program is for each student to achieve a high school diploma or requisite courses for enrolment in a post- secondary institution. We see our mandate as offering an alternative high school program for students whose skills allow them to succeed within the Learning Centre environment.
The small school nature of the Sturgeon Learning Centre provides for informal, but supportive teacher-learner relationships.
The Learning Centre is for anyone who needs an extra course, needs to repeat a course, wants to upgrade, or needs some flexibility in their timetable, even if you are already registered at another high school. Students are involved in selecting their programs and determining goals.
Attendance and work completion schedules are flexible and designed to meet the individual needs of students.
The small school nature of the Learning Centres provides for informal, but supportive teacher-learner relationships. Students are treated as adults and are extensively involved in the planning of their educational program. Personalized education plans incorporating modules, one-to-one tutorials, meetings and group or individual learning projects assist each student in achieving their personal academic objectives.
Students are encouraged to work at their own pace, reach for a personal level of mastery and learn to balance time with success. Generally, Distance Learning modules are the primary instructional tools, although computer assisted instruction, work experience and locally developed resources may be components of the instructional methodology.
