*What about Multi-grade & Multi-age Groups?

We know the power of multi-age learning! Select your own ten IRP outcomes from any of the grade levels represented by your learners. We'll make sure to adapt our programming to fit your preferences.

*What about students in the higher grades?

We also offer a variety of programs for students in grade 8 to 12 ...and beyond. (Check out our Environmental Studies 11 and 12 programs!) We can custom design an ecological education adventure to fit any course, subject area or grade level. We are currently exploring partnerships and connections with post-secondary institutions and will also be creating adult programs in the near future.
