What King’s View Academy says..

The Educational Approach of King’s View Academy

At King’s View Academy everything we do is designed to support the learning goals and needs of our individual students. Each student is unique if you consider the combination of multiple abilities: understanding expectations, setting goals, tracking progress, being organized, planning, and learning. Our educational model is designed to foster the development of all of these abilities.

Overall Model

The emphasis of the education model of KVA is to develop effective learners. An effective learner can use time and resources wisely to learn. Resources, in this sense, include print, on-line, and human resources (including teachers and fellow learners). Learning the content serves two priorities: to develop a transcript that will contribute to a successful application to university; and to provide continuous practice in becoming a more effective self-directed learner.

Individual Program

Every student at KVA is on an Individual Program. There is no pre-packaged set of courses that we insist every student in a particular grade has to take: programs and courses are set based purely on student goals. In addition, some students have goals and needs that go beyond academic courses, such as dance, athletics, music, enrichment in any area, or any other interest that can be addressed and developed during traditional school hours. At KVA, students have access to many options beyond the Nova Scotia Dept of Education courses offered, including opportunities that are not offered at KVA.

Flexible Scheduling

With each KVA student following an independent program, we function with flexibility in scheduling so that any single student at any time can progress toward achieving learning goals in any academic area. There are always learning resources available to any student at any time, including one-on-one teacher time, print resources, and Internet resources. Students may choose to work from home on inclement weather days or sick days, well-supported by Google Classroom and its multi-functioning G Suite. Students may take a leave of absence to travel for family vacations or for high-level training at facilities not located in Halifax.

Students who choose to strictly follow teachers’ presentations, instruction and scheduling have the same resources available to them as self-directed students working on their own balance of content and pace, and progressing toward mastery of outcomes on their own terms.

Self-Paced

Students uniqueness includes learning preferences, abilities, and speed. Students should set their own pace rather than allow a teacher to tell them how “fast” to learn. This responsibility is necessary in a university setting as programs are usually intense with a large volume of content and few infrequent meeting. At KVA we track a student’s progress based on assessments and continuously communicate with students about the rate of their progress (what they have accomplished in how much time, and if this progress continues at the exact same rate what the final grade will be). Between the self-pacing and this system of tracking progress, students are able to adjust their goals and day-to-day routines to accommodate for success in all courses.
