CyberSchool marks 10 years of success
On-line learning draws spectrum of students in Alberta and overseas
Special to the WCR
St. Gabriel Cyber School, the first school of its kind in Alberta, offers an intriguing option for students from Grades 4-12 who prefer to travel to school via the Internet.
"Www.stgabe.com" has been providing this government approved and publicly-funded educational alternative for the past 10 years and has seen its graduates go on to successful careers and post-secondary education. St. Gabriel provides the same accreditation as a traditional school in a Catholic on-line and disciplined environment.
The popularity of this method of education is growing for many reasons - flexibility in scheduling and the opportunity to orchestrate other activities of importance to the family to name just a few. A medical condition may keep a student out of the classroom.
Perhaps involvement in a demanding athletic, religious or arts program makes it difficult to attend school on the regular, traditional-school basis. Or maybe the student is self-motivated - 60 per cent of Alberta students who have been coded as "gifted" have opted for the stgabe.com style of on-line learning.
Team effort to learn
With stgabe.com, learning is a team effort. Rather than making the student fit the school, St. Gabriel tailors the learning style and method to fit each individual student. Students, teachers and family are committed to the program and work together to provide a comprehensive education in a flexible environment.
Learning is done on the Internet and the information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is no need to worry about missing classes because of family holidays or extracurricular events.
In fact, several of St. Gabriel Cyber School's students are overseas, yet keeping up with the Alberta Learning Curriculum through St. Gabe's innovative online learning system.
If you are interested in simplifying your life and enriching your child's life, consider the rewarding education alternative at St. Gabriel Cyber School.
St. Gabe is flexible, interactive, affordable and on the leading-edge, allowing students to succeed online, part-time or full-time, across Alberta and around the world.
