With more than 180 free, Ministry of Saskatchewan-approved online courses between Kindergarten to Grade 12, we provide home-based learners access to all of the same resources and supports that would be available in a school-based setting.
Our online courses, which include K-12 lesson plans, reading materials, workbooks, instructional videos, and online assessment tools are designed to accommodate learning at a pace and place that best suits you. And to support you in that learning, our team of educators is here to help find the right mix of learning materials, strategies and assessment tools that will allow you - or your child - to realize your full potential. Through email, phone, video conference and, if needed, face to face meetings, we can explore issues, solve problems and prepare you for the next step on your educational path.
With quality educational resources and a willing parent or mentor to support the learning experience, children can not only grow but prosper from Kindergarten through to high school graduation in this nurturing environment.
Whether you have temporarily stepped away from a traditional school setting or have chosen - for yourself or for your child - to complete the K-12 experience in a home-based environment, we offer educational supports for all situations.

There is a misconception that online learners may not have the same supports as their peers in a traditional school setting. However, home-based learners often benefit from the personal attention of a learning mentor who can provide daily encouragement and support in a way that meets a learner's individual needs. While the role of the learning mentor maybe slightly different as a student progresses from elementary to high school, an effective mentor is key to student success in an online environment.
