Creative Approach

We’ve built our academic program on the foundation of a solid provincial curriculum while incorporating our own educational philosophies and beliefs. We deliver the courses in explorative learning environments and our top priorities are student interaction and community  engagement. Fundamental to this approach is monitoring each student's progress and partaking in regular reflection and goal setting exercises.

Best Practices
