Rundle Studio

Grade 7–12 Program

Through our Pathways to Learning program, the Studio encourages students to strive for success in academics, build solid character, and engage in co-curricular activities. Although we want students to achieve the highest level of academics, we believe that focusing on character development is paramount.

Through social interactions, learning experiences, and co-curricular activities, students continuously develop their character and self-confidence. The Studio delivers curriculum from Alberta Education at grade level with no modifications.

In fall 2024, our program expands to include grade 11 and we will celebrate with our first graduating class in 2026.

Join us on June 13 at our online Open House to get all of your questions answered.

Mia and her parents share their thoughts about the positive impact the Studio has had on her learning journey since joining the Studio in the fall of 2021.

DAILY PROGRAM COMPONENTS

Technology Requirement

As an online school, we have specific requirements to ensure we are connected when we need to be.

All Studio students must have access to a fast internet connection and it must be consistent at all times of the day (bandwidth)

  • A minimum download speed of >50 Mbps
  • A minimum upload speed of >20 Mbps

All Studio students are required to have the following:

  • Macbook Air with M1 chip or better, 8GB memory, and 256GB storage
  • iPad 9th generation or better with 64 GB minimum

Suggested optional components include:

  • a second monitor
  • VR Headset (Meta-Quest 2 is a popular choice)

How Our Online School Works

The Lead Teacher (LT) delivers curricular content using clear, direct instruction to all students in the grade. After the lesson, students move to small breakout groups where the Teacher Advisor (TA) consolidates the learning through highly dynamic, engaging, and personalized activities.

While in TA groups, students ask questions, interact with each other, collaborate on activities, and demonstrate their understanding of the day’s material. Once the lesson is complete, the TA connects with the LT to review student progress and prepare for the next lesson based on the results.
