Starting in September, students can benefit from our new Flexible Hybrid Programming which offers the ability to have excellent academic programming tailored to the needs of each student. At SACHS, we value all that makes students thrive. If your extracurricular passions are important to you, then they are important to us! Let us help you achieve your academic goals without compromising the hard work and dedication that have been invested into other areas of your life, such as athletics, arts, music, or an apprenticeship program.
Wade Michael, Principal for École Secondaire St. Albert Catholic High School (SACHS), says that this program is for all students who require some sort of flexibility within their timetables. “We want to support our students in following their dreams, walking alongside them, and building an adaptive timetable that will include both their education and passion to thrive.”
The new Wellness and Training Hub will include a modernization to the gymnasiums, an on-site trainer to facilitate athletic-related requirements, support from teachers and staff with students’ flexible schedules, and ultimately provide students with the ability to control their own learning.
“We are so excited to launch the Wellness and Training Hub at SACHS and can already see the extreme benefits that will impact students both physically and mentally,” says Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools Assistant Superintendent, Cathy Giesbrecht “This program isn’t just for athletes - we envision musicians who need time to train, actors, athletes, or maybe students who need to balance RAP program work experiences and school time. Anyone who needs flexible programming can find it here.”
The flexible programming will be individualized for each student and may include a combination of in-class learning, online learning and self-learning modules. Students may also complete courses in a shorter or longer time frame depending on scheduling. Changes to the school facilities include converting the small gym to a training facility, new equipment, new windows in both gymnasiums and a dedicated trainer for all students.
