Announcing the Seven Summits Centre for Learning!
We are very excited to announce that starting Fall 2013, grade 8 to 12 students from Rossland and beyond will have a new option for their education.
The Rossland Neighbourhood of Learning Committee/VSS is partnering with Self Design Learning Community to offer a student-centered, inquiry-based learning centre — Seven Summits Centre for Learning — which will include the entire B.C. grade 8-12 high school graduation program, as well as a diverse suite of dynamic independent study choices and community initiatives.
Self Design, an independent distributed learning school established in 2002, is an internationally recognized and award-winning leader in the field of education including the “Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Education Innovation.” Self Design offers individualized learning customized to each student’s needs, using an effective combination of online interactive learning and classroom learning. Teachers will be working in Rossland, at the Centre, face-to-face with students. All courses are certified by the B.C. Ministry of Education.
Guest speaker, Barbarah Nicoll, vice principal of Self Design Learning Community will explain the program to potential students and parents, and answer their questions.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive an information package and application form.
Please forward this e-mail to anyone who may be interested attending this meeting and/or in enrolling their child in this exciting new educational opportunity in Rossland in September of 2013.
