NorthStar Academy’s print-based resource program is a teacher-directed approach to education for grades 1 to 9 where teachers are responsible for the planning, instruction, and assessment of a student’s learning.
NorthStar Academy supports students who desire a flexible learning environment by providing the majority of instruction through approved print-based resources and access to certified Alberta teachers for further support. Our print-based resource program is “asynchronous” rather than in “real time” which allows further flexibility in how students structure their school day. If they choose, there are regular opportunities for students to meet virtually with their teachers and classmates.
In grade 1 we offer the following courses:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
