SelfDesign High has moved to a new location.

SelfDesign office moves to Baker St.

Formerly housed at Kalein Hospice Centre, the office is now located at 405 Baker St., above the Royal Bank

SelfDesign Learning Community K-12  is moving its Nelson office to a new location.

Formerly housed at Kalein Hospice Centre, the office is now located at 405 Baker St. (above the Royal Bank), providing a place for parents and learners to consult with local educators or to get more information on the program.

SelfDesign families and the public are invited to an open house Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m., or to call 1-877-353-3374 for further information about available offerings.

SelfDesign is in its 13th year as a province-wide, independent distributed learning school, currently serving 2,500 students including those needing special education services.

Its personalized learning approach provides certified teachers offering one-to-one online support to students ages 5 to 19 who learn at home or in their communities.

Individually-designed learning plans developed around each learner’s interests and curiosities act as the base for customized programming, and for high school learners a full suite of foundation and elective courses is available to students, with culmination in a Dogwood diploma if desired.
