K – 9
TLA DL's Home division exists to serve parents in educating their children at home using traditional and/or high-tech learning resources and programs. Our Home teachers work with parents to develop individualized learning programs incorporating BC Ministry of Education learning standards in skills and content.
Each student's learning plan emphasizes the student's passions and interests as well as the parent's goals. Home teachers provide counselling and assistance with instruction, support for the learning environment, evaluation of the program and child's success, and long-term planning.
TLA Home teachers work in close cooperation with all other departments of TLA's diverse program to ensure everyone finds a School to call Home.
TLA Blended Courses are delivered through a blended learning approach – within each course students divide their time between attending class physically at our school locations and learning remotely using online delivery of content and instruction.
Students attend 1.5 hours in the classroom per course each week, taking part in an engaging learning environment where they benefit from interacting with their peers and working under the guidance of a BC certified teacher.
Outside of the classroom, students will have access to course content and weekly communication through an online course page.
The time in the classroom is then spent on the application of concepts, higher-level thinking activities, and group work.
TLA's one-day and two-day K-9 Blended Programs are an opportunity for students to pursue personal interests individually and in a group or cohort.
The learning framework is collaborative and project based. Project Based Learning is an effective and enjoyable way to learn and develop deeper learning competencies required for success today and in future endeavours.
TLA offers a variety of Online courses at the grade 6-9 level that can be integrated with the Home program or added to Blended courses to make a complete program.
Taught by BC certified teachers, the grade 7-9 online courses allow students to work at their own pace, creating the freedom to focus on passions and interests that are the hallmark of home learning.
