Kala Star Academics and Outdoor School believes in providing a learning environment where student’s intrinsic motivation is nourished, allowing them to become self-directed, self-motivated, creative thinkers, and obtain the necessary skills to collaborate with others on group based real-life community projects and environmental initiatives. Kala Star grade 5-7 students will complete B.C.’s Ministry of Education mandatory Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) through a Distributed Learning School, and will supplement life-long education with hands-on direct learning through local, national, and international community business, wellness, athletics, success, and life ‘experts’. Our goals exceed the 21st century learning models, so grade 5-7 students begin to ‘build a base’ and are able to reach their true academic, physical, and social-emotional potential and succeed in any endeavour they may choose.
