Online Students

The Leaning Hub's "Students Online" was developed to supplement and enhance High School programming options for students within Buffalo Trail Public Schools and beyond. Students Online operates in a cooperative manner with divisional schools, balanced with mutual accountability of all parties involved, to help students access courses they may not be able to access in their home school.

Students Online also serves at home learners and learners from out of the BTPS division. We can help you work towards obtaining an appropriate high school diploma. We offer the full complement of Alberta Education core courses as well as several complementary (CTS) courses.

Registering for an online course from a BTPS school

If you are a student who would like to take an additional course for credits, for interest, a course not offered by your school, or course to catch up on credits, then you should see your school counsellor or principal. They can help you determine which is the best course for you to take and if online school is your best option. 

Your principal will then register you directly for your course with us.

Registering for a course for at home students or out of BTPS students.

If you are someone who is schooling from home or are a student outside of the Buffalo Trail Public Schools district, then you will need to register with us directly by following the steps outlined on our registration page.

Things to consider:

Asynchronous course delivery

All of our courses are taught in an asynchronous manner, meaning that it is the student's responsibility to access, read, and engage with the material. Teachers do not teach live courses, but they can be contacted regularly for help with the material. Teachers will be accessible by email and/or schedule Google Meet sessions.

To access course material, you need:

● Access to a Chromebook, computer or laptop per student. Attempting to
complete a course on a cellphone is not advised.
● Reliable internet access - we suggest that you sign up for unlimited data if
● Working microphone and camera.
● Ability to download computer applications, such as Chrome add-ons and

Student Check In

It is an expectation that students remain in regular contact with their teacher
throughout their course. This may occur through email, Google Meet, etc.
