Inspiring Hearts and Minds

Outreach

Welcome to The Canadian Rockies Public Schools Inreach/Outreach Program

Canadian Rockies Educational Inreach/Outreach provides an alternative, flexible learning opportunity for students. With the support of a teacher, students work through unit modules from Alberta Distance Learning Centre (ADLC) in the Inreach classrooms at either CCHS or BCHS.

English Language Arts (all grades), Grade 10/11 Math, Science 14/24/10, Biology 20/30, Forensics 25/35, Psychology (various), CALM 20 and other options are offered in either print or online format using ADLC or teacher developed materials. These courses are marked by onsite by Inreach teachers.

Social Studies (all levels), Grade 12 Math, Chemistry and Physics courses are delivered through and accessed by ADLC teachers or Golden Hills Learning Academy teachers depending on the course chosen by the student.

Students enrolled in CCHS or BCHS are considered our Inreach (blended) students. Returning Grade 12 students and off campus students have the opportunity to upgrade courses with our Bow Valley College partner and are considered our Outreach students.
