Athabasca University (AU) is Canada’s leading distance-education university. We are dedicated to removing barriers and would be an ideal choice for homeschoolers by providing:
Accessibility – Our policy allows admission into a course to anyone that is 16 or older;
Year-round entrance policy which allows you to enrol at any time of year; rather than wait until the beginning of a semester to begin study;
Flexibility means you can study for a certificate, diploma, a Bachelor’s degree, or at the Master’s level. You can “top up” credits for another post-secondary institution or you can take courses to get a head start on Post-secondary; and
Block-transfer agreements with many partner colleges, and comprehensive credit recognition.
Families appreciate the fact that they can choose the level of participation that works with their homeschooling situation. There is room for flexibility and we welcome conversations about what is possible. Although Riverside Learning works out of Perth and Huron counties, they do serve families from the surrounding area as well.
There is no charge to participate as this program is publicly-funded through the Avon Maitland District School Board. One exception may be to join an optional certification course that is being hosted with an outside training organization, or to participate in a field trip.
The program coordinator for Riverside is Michelle Kuepfer. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and she also can be reached at (519) 584-4028. Michelle is an excellent person to contact for further information about the program.
