Information sessions upcoming for ENTER blended learning programs

Two open house events are scheduled to introduce Comox Valley families to the ENTER 1 and E2 programs. Each of these STEM-based programs is specifically designed to engage students who have a passion for technology, math and science.

ENTER (eCademy of New Technology, Engineering and Robotics) has been globally recognized for its innovation in online learning, winning the prestigious iNACOL award in 2014.

These open house events are intended to provide parents and students with the opportunity to envision their own involvement and to see if it resonates with their personal learning style.

ENTER programs provide a project-based approach motivating students to explore their own interests, discover new opportunities, and experience a sense of community. Both ENTER1 and E2 are fully accredited programs of choice that combine three days per week for face-to-face learning in a classroom setting, and two days a week learning from home. ENTER 1 is open to students in Grades 6-7 and classroom learning takes place at Aspen Elementary in Comox. The E2 program is a continuation of studies for students Grade 8-9 who have completed ENTER 1 with classroom learning taking place at Highland Secondary.

The open house for ENTER1 will be held at Aspen on March 14, from 1-2 p.m. in the E1 classroom, where parents and potential students can experience this unique learning environment.

An evening information session will also be offered at 6:30 p.m. The E2 open house will be held in the E2 classroom on April 4, from 1-2 p.m. at Highland. The evening information session will be April 4 at 6:30.

We encourage anyone attending any of these sessions to bring their potential student.

Both ENTER1 and ENTER2 (E2) are programs of choice within the public education offering and have limited spaces available. Some fees do apply.

If you would like to meet the teachers, ask questions, and learn more about the innovative learning options available at Navigate, plan to attend these open house events.
