Surrey Connect, the district’s online learning environment, has been transformed into the Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning (SAIL).
SAIL, which has its base on the second floor of the District Education Centre, will launch new Grade 8 SAIL academies based on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM and STEMX for gifted students), Arts (STEAM) and an Athletics, Performing Arts and Excellence Academy (APAX).
SAIL’s K–7 school will focus on the STEAM program in a blended (multiple grades working together) learning environment.
The academies supplement Surrey Connect’s traditional online courses for grades 10 –12 (Surrey Connect); however, these courses now have an enhanced curriculum featuring projects and inquiry-based learning. SAIL’s STEM curriculum offers a particular focus on creating, inventing and tinkering in a MakerSpace environment. Students explore real world topics through independent learning and critical thought.
“Our goal is to engage our students’ inherent passion for learning,” says principal Peter Johnston. “The SAIL programs encourage learning that develops creative thought, independence and critical thinking alongside like-minded students in a blended learning environment. Students imagine, design, make prototypes, redesign and repeat.”
SAIL is hosting two open houses at the District Education Centre in Surrey (2nd floor 14033 – 92 Ave.) and one open house at Brookside Elementary (8555 – 142A St. Surrey). All three events start at 6:30 p.m. on the relevant day. The public is invited to come and learn more about SAIL and the new academies.
