EDUCATION

EDUCATION IS TAILORED TO EACH STUDENT

Students in large classes with an inflexible academic schedule often feel their needs are not being met.  Podium of Life offers a flexible schedule and delivery of the academic program to help meet the various needs of students.

Students will learn grade appropriate education through a distance education program approved by the Government of British Columbia.  This includes earning credits toward graduation for students in grade 10 – 12.  School is taught by a certified teacher who has 15 years of experience and holds a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership.

Some students enrol for the entire season, others enrol for a semester, and others enrol for a week or two. Podium of Life accommodates a variety of educational needs.

Students in semestered schools can opt to complete the first semester at their school and enrol at Podium of Life for the second semester.

SNOW SPORTS PE GRADE 10 -12

Students in grades 10 – 12 can earn PE credits towards graduation by skiing or boarding.

Snow Sports PE is intended to support students in their sport specific passion: skiing, snow boarding, and nordic skiing. The course focuses on pre-season, sport specific, and mental training to support their athletic winter sports commitments outside of school. The course is designed to meet the individual needs of students who want to pursue physical education outside of the regular school setting. This opportunity is available to all students, whether they sign up for Podium of Life or not. Please email podiumoflife@shaw.ca for an outline and registration package.
