Inquiry Hub Secondary School is for learners who share a passion for knowing and investigation and have an interest in using technology to seek answers to their questions. The Inquiry Hub will appeal to families who are seeking a smaller, cooperative learning environment where students can focus on their interests individually and in small teams – those who:

• Are motivated learners that have some self-regulation skills

• Want a chance to apply their learning in a practical way

• Are interested in research and learning with technology

• Find structured classes do not meet their learning needs

• Are interested in learning through social networks

• Desire to work on projects which make a difference

The Inquiry Hub offers the following benefits for students:

• Instruction which blends classroom and online experiences in a hybrid model

• A student-driven inquiry approach to learning

• Significant reduction of structured classes with emphasis on a learning commons where students do daily group project work and individual, computer-based learning

• Class environments which group students around interests and project focus rather than grade levels

• Parents and community as active learning partners

• Extensive use of peer mentorship in cross-grade projects

• Core, inquiry-based program offerings which are extended through our extensive list of online courses
