Our Program

Grades Taught



The Learning Hub is a safe learning environment with a focus on whole-person wellness. It combines core curriculum with out-of-classroom learning opportunities. Students are in their homeroom and have access to subject area courses and teachers through outreach and virtual, with the homeroom teacher helping to adapt courses as necessary.


  1. To create an environment in which students have access to supports for all aspects of their lives.

  2. To use these supports and education to broaden support to the community outside the school setting.

  3. To provide an educational environment that fits the school to the students, instead of having the students try to fit the school.


  1. The Learning Hub strives to maintain a “family atmosphere”. Students must have regular attendance and stay with a cohort of students throughout their high school career. Our goal is to create and maintain relationships, and establish a safe and secure environment where students can experience personal and group success.

  2. Academics are student-centered, but teacher-guided. Students take part in all aspects of their high school journey towards graduation. This includes being a partner in setting their timetable and goals, and in determining how they go through the curricular outcomes, and how they ultimately will be assessed against the curricular outcomes.

  3. Students will fulfill the exact same Alberta Graduation requirements as in a mainstream high school. The course content for every course is the same, and a Learning Hub student will be able to graduate.

  4. Students will have the opportunity to explore concepts in leadership, volunteerism, making relationships in the community and exploring ways to make a difference. 

The Learning Hub is a Parkland School Division alternative high school program of choice built on your questions, your ideas, and your impact on the community.

Aimed at creating an environment where students can live out Parkland School Division’s vision - ensuring they possess the confidence, resilience, insight and skills required to thrive in, and positively impact, the world - this program ignites students’ curiosity, illuminates their passions, builds their world-changing abilities, fosters collaboration, social-emotional learning and equity. The Learning Hub supports students’ brave and confident pursuit of their ideas and dreams.

Who is The Learning Hub For?

The Learning Hub is designed specifically for outreach students who benefit from a whole-person approach and a smaller community environment, where they can study and complete coursework with the support of a teacher liaison. Students still work with subject area teachers but can seek out their teacher liaison as needed to ensure outcomes are met and learning opportunities are conducive to the learner.

Emphasis will be placed on developing a proactive, holistic lifestyle, including mental health and social-emotional literacy, active living, nutrition and strong partner/family relationships and community connections.

Hub students are still able to attend some regularly scheduled high school courses (such as CTS) while experiencing the benefit of the homeroom approach for other subjects.

The Learning Hub is a good fit for students who:

  • Are looking for a learning environment that's different from the traditional classroom setting;
  • Want to fulfill all high school graduation requirements;
  • Would like to be part of a tight-knit homeroom class where they can develop close, positive relationships;
  • Can set goals and make plans to add structure to their day;
  • Can work effectively on their own, while still seeking out assistance as necessary; and,
  • Want more flexibility in the timing of their high school career.
