The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon’s Académie virtuelle will host a virtual open house on Wednesday, June 16, at 6.30 p.m. As part of this activity, parents will be offered a presentation to learn more about how the school operates, get to know some of the school staff, discover some of its success stories and hear testimonials from parents and students of the Académie virtuelle.

Due to the challenges posed by the pandemic and in order to promote continuity in learning as well as ensure the well-being of its students, the CSC Nouvelon will maintain its Académie virtuelle during the 2021-2022 school year. Launched in September 2020, this new virtual school operates like a regular school but is offered in a virtual mode. Since its opening, the Académie virtuelle has welcomed Kindergarten to grade 8 students from several communities in the districts of Sudbury and Algoma. While the Académie virtuelle counted 441 students in the fall, no less than 331 students were registered in the spring. 

Students follow a regular schedule, which includes the national anthem, morning prayer, and teaching of several subjects such as French, social and natural sciences, physical education and the arts, among others. While students attend lessons live via their computer or iPad, they also spend part of the day working individually or collaboratively with other students in their remote classroom. like a traditional classroom, students also have a recess in the morning and afternoon as well as a lunch break. 

Parents and guardians will have to confirm if their children will pursue their learning at the Académie virtuelle during the upcoming school year.
