Our Take: Glenmore Christian Academy
The initial draw for families considering Glenmore is the values piece: a full curriculum taught through the Christian lens. Certainly, that’s something which distinguishes the school within the region, and often is the first point of contact. What families find in the school, however, is both that and whole lot more. Given the size of the school, Glenmore is also able to offer a very rich, diverse range of programming, something that understandably is also very attractive. There is a full program of intramurals, and the breadth of the music program—including options for individual lessons—is something that also distinguishes the school. A mission program at the grade 9 level offers an international experience earlier than in a majority of programs, and can provide a very nice punctuation to a student's experience at Glenmore. The ideal student is one who will thrive within a vibrant, challenging, community-centered learning environment.
What does learning at Glenmore Christian Academy look like now?
At GCA, a strong community is paramount to us. It is our priority to partner with parents in the education of their children. In these challenging times, that partnership is even more important as we continue to strive to support our families, and the education of our students.
In order to continue to continue to provide quality Christian education to our students, we have created an online Distance Learning Program. This program allows our teachers to continue to connect with students in a variety of ways. Using Google Classroom as a home base, students receive instructional videos as well as online assignments, have one-on-one online interaction with teachers, and join in virtual classroom discussions.
As we continue to take instruction from Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Ministry of Education, we will continue to adjust our program accordingly, whether it includes expanding our Distance Learning efforts, or offering a combination of Distance Learning opportunities alongside in school teaching.
