Additional Online Courses - InformNet

As part of our vision to offer quality education to students as they strive for academic excellence, the collegiate campus offers additional scheduling and course options to students through InformNet. InformNet offers full online courses from the Manitoba curriculum for students. These courses provide students with daily instruction, assignments and evaluation through regular email and web-based interaction from a certified high school teacher. Calvin Christian School will provide the course credit once subject requirements are met and costs associated for one credit hour will be covered by the school. Please note that costs are covered only for courses that either are not offered by the school or do not fit into the student’s schedule. Also note that if the course is not completed, is a course taken for an upgraded mark, or if the student fails the online course, the family is responsible for the costs associated.

Support Services

The collegiate campus enjoys the services of a full time Resource Teacher and a staff of Educational Assistants who come alongside students who may benefit from further support in the areas of academics and behavior. A school Guidance Counsellor is also available to those students who may require additional support for a variety of reasons. Speech, Psychology and Social Work support is available through RETSD. Our Academic Guidance Counselor helps students navigate and make decisions about course options as required throughout their high school years.
