The Foundation For Students At St. John Bosco Campus Are:  Scenerios - 

  1. Flexible Course Pacing And Offering:     
    • Study One Course At A Time - For Example, I Am A Student Who Likes To Focus On One Or Two Subjects At A Time And Work Until I Complete Them, Then I Like To Move On 
    • Blend Into St. John's And Another School - For Example, I Would Like To Complete My English Course Early Because I Am Good At It - But I Would Like To Take Another Course During The Time The Rest Of My Classmates Are Taking English.  OR  I Really Need To Take Longer To Complete My Chemistry Because I Know If I Had A Bit More Time I Would Do Better.
    • One-To-One Instruction - I Learn Best When There Are Less People In The Classroom.  I Enjoy Working In An Environment That Allows Me To Speak And Work With My Instructor. Where Possible Students Will Have Access To Course Specialists.
    • Full Course Load - I Am A Student Who Would Like To Try An Alternate Approach To My Learning Opportunities And Would Like To Try St. John Bosco South Campus.
    • Credit Recovery - I Would Like To Redo Assignments Or Exams That I Did Not Do As Well As I Wanted To So That I Am Able To Pass The Course Or Increase My Current Mark.
    • Correspondence Courses - I Like The Flexibility And I Work Better On My Own.
    • Credits To Earn Scholarships - I Am Short Credits To Earn A Scholarship So I Would Like To Complete More Credits.
  2. Flexible Time
    • St. John Bosco South Is Able To Work With Students Who Have 'Life Commitments' And Struggle Attending In A Traditional School.
    • For Example, I Am An Athlete And Train Outside Of Grande Prairie.  I Would Like To Graduate With My Peers But Training Takes Me Away.  St. John's Can Provide A Flexible Learning Opportunity For Me.
    • I Am A Student Who Is Chronically Late.  I Am Willing To Do All The Work Required Of Me, But I Need To Start My Day A Bit Later.
    • I Have A Family I Support And Need To Focus On One Subject At A Time.
    • I Would Like To Work On Days There Is No School (Friday For Example).
    • I Would Like To Complete Extra Credits Or Assignments After School.

    • I Like To Put My Headphones In And Work
    • I Like To Discuss My Ideas With Others
    • I Like To Blog And Work Online
