Home Education

"As a first-time homeschooler, the thought of undertaking traditional homeschooling was very daunting. The principal at Connections for Learning discussed my options at length with me to help me determine which option suited my vision for my children’s education. My facilitator provided numerous resources and sound advice to aid my deliverance of the curriculum I chose. My children have thrived under traditional homeschooling with the help of the wonderful staff at CFL and my family is looking forward to our next year of homeschooling under CFL."

Be in control of your child’s learning journey with the support of our Home Education program!

In Alberta, families can choose to educate their children entirely at home. This is a parent-directed program with access to teacher support. Parents can select curriculum, resources and methodology consistent with their family’s beliefs. We encourage parents to set a curriculum that aligns with their values, and provide learning opportunities specifically designed for their child. 

While this flexible schooling method has benefited families throughout Alberta for many years, it can be made even better through a partnership with Connections For Learning. We want to give Home Education families access to the same opportunities experienced through our other programs, such as workshops, community learning events, field trips and more. In addition, our Home Education Program employs a certificated teacher who can help parents plan their child's program and provide educational support to homeschooling families throughout the school year. Funding is also available to support your home education plan. 

Connections For Learning Home Education values:

  • Learning 
  • Community 
  • Parent choice and freedom to design their own Home Education Plan 
  • Collaboration between parents and the school 
  • Providing a robust variety of optional learning opportunities and activities for Home Education families
