We are proud to be Edmonton Catholic’s first official online & blended school established in the 2021-22 school year.
We are unique in that we offer pure online programming for grades 1-9 students across Alberta and blended programming for 1-9 students who reside in Edmonton.
Although Genesis Online & Blended students are in different programs, we are proud be a part of one school community, connected and rooted in our faith! Our schedules have been built to work together, not separately, in order to allow for deep connection and strong relationships amongst students, staff and families.
Students who are part of Genesis Catholic Online Elementary/Junior High School have an educational experience that mirrors in-person learning within a virtual environment while in the Pure Online Program. Students experience a blend of both worlds (online & in-person) when registered in our Blended Program. Active engagement for the full school day while immersed in all subject areas allows our students to build their skills in collaboration, literacy, numeracy, digital citizenship, critical thinking, problem solving and more!
As a school community, we work together to build a rich experience for our students and families. Teachers involve students in whole group, small group and one-to-one learning opportunities throughout the day, in both programs. In addition, students take part in school broadcast, celebrations, school spirit days, extra-curricular clubs, sports teams, etc. in order to allow for rich experiences and connections.
We are blessed to have a School Council supporting us in building connection with our students’ families as well as working together to create an amazing experience for all!
We are SO excited to announce that we will be offering a Blended Program for kindergarten to grade 9 students starting in 2022-23. Students who register for our Blended Program will reap the benefits of online learning 3 days a week and in-person learning 2 days a week.
