The Work-Based Learning aspect of Place-Based Education means that we will incorporate local tradespeople and businesses in ways that increase student access to various trades and vocations. The school will facilitate the use of RAP (Registered Apprenticeship Program), Green Certificate, Dual Credit, Work Experience, job shadowing and career internships. CTS courses or locally developed courses will be offered to prepare students for successful off-campus placements.
At the Junior High level, options will be chosen or developed to meet student needs, and taught in ways that reflect the goals of Place-Based Education. We anticipate lots of site visits to local craftsman, as well as in-school demonstrations and activities.
As a charter school, Holden Rural Academy is required to meet the requirements of a basic education as defined by Alberta Education and described in the provincial curriculum.
To proceed with our application for the school, we need families to fill out declaration forms. Parent Declaration Form
