TLA offers unique One-Day and Two-Day Blended Programs at a variety of locations across BC. In these year-long programs, students participate in class once or twice a week while completing the remainder of their schoolwork in the home. Built around our teacher’s expertise and your student’s passion, Blended programs are tailored around individual strengths and will encompass your student’s entire program, in combination with learning occurring at home. Class time is usually spent on group work and project-based learning, with the occasional fun field trip!

Students from K-12 can also take individual courses in the Blended format. Each week from Sept. to June, students spend 1.5 hours per four credit course in an engaging learning environment where they interact with peers and BC-certified teachers. Outside the classroom, students access course content and weekly communication online.

If you have questions about a specific course or Program, you can go to our Team page to contact the Vice Principal associated with the course or Program in which you are interested.
