Home Schooling

Are you considering home schooling your children next year?

St. Albert Public Schools offers a home education program that lets you maintain ties to the division while you provide a parent-directed education program to your children. Our program offers:
  • parent support packs to guide instruction;
  • an opportunity to do blended classes or activities (e.g. options, field trips) with one of our division schools;
  • a greater ability to transition back to in-person learning throughout the school year (depending on space in the requested school); and
  • the opportunity to stay connected to the St. Albert Public Schools’ community.

Home Support Packs

  • Choose to develop your own learning plans for your children or use our Home Support Packs.
  • Once registered, you will be sent a link to the Home Support Packs (developed through a partnership with Edmonton Public Schools and updated bi-weekly).
  • These packs provide lessons and learning activities that cover the “essential outcomes” (the learning that is deemed to be the most important) in the four core subject areas (English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies).
  • Alternatively, you can use the grade-level curriculum overviews (available in the Home Support Packs) to help develop your program plan. Your home education facilitator will review your program plan. Please note that the home education program plan must be approved prior to any reimbursement of expenses.

Home Education Facilitator

A home education facilitator will conduct three evaluations of your children’s progress during the year (late October/early November, June and one additional check-in to be determined in consultation with you). For these check-ins, facilitators will ask to see the portfolio of your children’s work and may recommend strategies to improve your children’s achievement. The facilitator will not provide any instruction.
