Life at Rundle Studio

A New Approach to Virtual Learning

Two years ago, we “opened our doors” virtually, to a new way of educating students with complex learning needs. At Rundle, we focus on character first and this continues through all facets of our Studio program. Maintaining our value of small class sizes, we have a limited intake of students who receive a personalized approach to their learning. We are building on the success of our Academy program and we’ve brought that to an interactive, online environment and are supported by engaging new technologies.

It’s time to be innovative in education and we are thinking differently about online learning and shattering expectations for complex learners.

  • has complex learning requirements, that may or may not include a mild or moderate diagnosed learning disability, ADHD, ASD, anxiety, gifted learning status, or requiring a modified schedule*.
  • has average to above-average intelligence; capable of achieving grade-level Alberta curriculum with accommodations, however not modified.
  • is looking for an academic program focused on continued learning at the post-secondary level;
  • has access to high-speed wifi; consistently greater than 15 mbps; and
  • has positive character traits, showing kindness to others, and embracing a sense of community.

*Please reach out to our admissions team to clarify further if the Rundle Studio is appropriate for your child.

Rundle parents support our programs which further enrich and strengthen the Rundle community. There are various volunteer opportunities available to our parents from supervising online activities, volunteering for esports events, to organizing special lunches and online scholastic book fairs. As with any new school, there will be additional opportunities where parent volunteers will be needed.
