About

Frontier Academy Canada has been a growing idea for over two years and we are thrilled to be opening our doors this September 2024.  We do not have a board, we are not a private school, and are not government funded, we are privately owned, lead by likeminded parents, teachers and a superintendent/administrator. Our curriculum will be grade/age appropriate and consist of the traditional arithmetic, language, writing, spelling, grammar, and reading, along with a mix of social studies, art, science, geography, history, and music. The younger grades work through the McGuffey Readers and Ray's Arithmetic Series which provides a curriculum, teacher lessons, answers and guides. Other curriculum will be focused on themes, unit studies and in the moment learning.  There will be a balance of book learning, exploring, discovering, asking questions, finding answers and socializing.​

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide the basics of traditional education with open and free forms of learning, to all students in a safe learning environment that is both supportive of the needs of the whole student and academically and practically focused in content and delivery.

Our Vision

Our vision is for parents to know what their child is learning and be a major part of the educational and learning process year to year. This is a solution for parents who want their child to have a homeschooling experience with traditional academics. Our goal is to open as many academies that the need calls for, whether it only be in Alberta or expand to across Canada. Focusing on the rural areas will allow for smaller class sizes as our academies will be a one room setting.
