Grades 7 & 8
A focus on interest-driven, project based learning. We will offer an education that provides students with authentic experiences, self-owned discovery, an ability to question and research, synthesize information and tap into individual creativity. Students will be able to access site and web-based learning platforms (flexible to travel, training, and academic needs) – e.g. morning academics, afternoon ski training, and race schedule friendly
