VES Courses

 

Our courses can streamline any home learning program, supplement a child’s day school curriculum, or be used as review materials. Parents and learning coaches prefer VES courses because we make it easy to organize, plan, and pace their child’s learning, and also track their progress. You can register for an independent course, a facilitated course, or a Learning Pod. Regardless of the path you choose, all VES parents and students enjoy the peace of mind that comes with courses fully aligned to Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum expectations. We simplify things so you can enjoy the experience of confidently guiding your child along their learning journey.
