Genesis Online Education
Online learning is available for students through our Genesis Online Learning program for those students in grades 7-12 who are successful in a self-directed learning environment. Students work on web-based courses using a combination of both synchronous and asynchronous instruction through our new, cutting edge Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). All of our Genesis Online courses are directed, taught, and assessed by our own certified EICS teachers.
At Genesis Online we offer a number of educational pathways, giving students rich opportunities for adapting their learning according to their aspirations and passions. We offer a full range of programs, from vocational Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) to preparation for trade and technical schools to Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and all our courses are developed within in a faith-rich environment. Uncertain of your future? No worries. Life experiences help shape our interests and passions. A well-rounded education, with a more general approach, is a great way to find out what you love.

Faith Integration means that Christian teaching and perspective are worked into all our courses. The fruit of this is that all our courses focus on the special nature of Western Civilization as shaped through centuries of Christendom. We believe that it was part of God’s plan to enter the world in the time and the place that he did: the ancient Mediterranean. We believe that the meeting of Christianity and Greek culture is the basis of the West, and another part of God’s plan. We believe that a study of the ancient and the medieval worlds helps us to understand the gift of the Gospel message by watching as Western Civilization emerges from a barbaric, pre-Christian Europe.
In English and in Social Studies, we meet Alberta curriculum by teaching the great books and by teaching a grounded understanding of history. We study the classics, and we offer such complementary courses as Philosophy, Latin, and European History. Our Math and Science courses similarly see all scientific study as an exploration of God’s creation, discovering beauty in God’s universe. We bring the best to our students, whatever stream of study they are in.
