Over the last 31 years, we have been providing personalized education to Calgary students. Through self-paced programs, our students have followed the model of self-directed, independent learning. Our ratio of 10 students per teacher has enabled us to provide individualized education. We value experiential learning to develop critical thinking skills, learner autonomy and personal initiative into a potent formula for success in life. We have found that student-directed programs have encouraged students to discover intrinsic motivation, organizational skills and self-confidence
