We recognize every student is unique and every student’s education plan is different. The goal of Building Futures is to give everyone a unique approach to learning, and the opportunity to develop practical skills. This program exposes students to various Alberta trades, as well as many other vocations within the construction industry, such as design, architecture, real estate, sales, marketing and so much more.
Small Student to Teacher Ratio
For the entire school year students will have support from the same homeroom teachers, who specialize in complementary subject areas. Teachers learn how individuals learn best, enabling them to personalize each student's education plan. Students are challenged academically while engaged in meaningful, practical applications of building a house.
Unique Learning Approach
The program is a collaboration between students, parents and community members. Exposing students to an array of industry trades, they can eventually choose a career path based on an informed decision, one that helps build success in an industry with robust options.
