AWCS Home School classes incorporate creative learning in an engaging setting. Students will explore writing in unique ways utilizing their imagination and innovation in our no-fail atmosphere. We make writing fun!
Our teachers have years of teaching experience. All our teachers have worked with children and in their professions for a number of years. They are passionate writers who care about sharing their knowledge with the next generation and do so in unique and entertaining ways. They are also police record checked to ensure student safety.
All children deserve an education that meets their needs. Our teachers have experience working with children with learning disabilities and other unique learning needs. Please feel free to discuss what your child needs to make their learning valuable.
You have control over what level of education your child takes. If you feel your child is writing at a higher or lower level than their grade, you have the opportunity to put them in the class that best meets their needs. We want our students to succeed!
We have three sessions, Fall, Winter, and Spring, and each of our writing sessions are different! So if your child took the Fall writing course and enjoyed it, they can continue in the Winter and Spring writing courses without fear of boredom. This allows your child to get a top quality language arts education all year long. We want our students to grow and build on their experiences.
We are responsive. If there is a need in the home school community for a language based class such as poetry, movie making, non-fiction/essay writing, or the like – let us know, and if there is enough interest, we will find a teacher and book it. If there is something your child needs to accomplish in their learning plan that isn’t being met at home, talk to your AWCS homeschool teacher and they can find a way to work it into their curriculum. If you have an idea to make our program better, share it! We love to listen.
We cover the Alberta Curriculum outcomes of study. In our writing courses we cover the six English Language Arts outcomes: listen, speak, read, write, view and represent. If you are following the Alberta Curriculum, you can feel confident that this will be fulfilled in your child’s learning.
We have a zero bullying policy. In our classes your children are safe to discover, make mistakes, and learn with freedom.
Your child will need a notebook, pens/pencils, and a folder for handouts. If they need a laptop/tablet they are welcome to bring that too.
Registration is now open. Please see Courses page for current home school class offerings.
