Demystifying the Grade 12 Program
NSAL Collťgial employs a blended learning strategy, combining in-class instruction with asynchronous online learning, providing students with a comprehensive educational experience. The curriculum is distinguished by its high-level of academics and rigorous coursework that thoroughly prepares students for the challenges awaiting them in higher education. Students attend school in-person, actively participating in three academic periods throughout the day with time for lunch and breaks. These periods are thoughtfully designed, offering a mix of interactive class time and dedicated time slots for independent study periods. Daily classes, facilitated by our dedicated and certified NSAL teachers, are enriched through virtual collaborations with other highly qualified Canadian educators. This unique approach ensures students receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for the reality and opportunities of university life.
