RVS The Farm Student Application 2020/21
Rocky View Schools students will take up their full grade 9 or 10 curriculum on The Farm, including core subjects, without ever having to set foot in a traditional classroom. ALL students from across Rocky View Schools will be encouraged to apply to the program and 40 students will be selected. The entire curriculum will be delivered through the lens of agriculture, with the “classroom” being a portable building and The Farm itself. The Farm will create an engaging learning environment steeped in agriculture while addressing all aspects of the
relevant curriculum.
Students have a choice on how to apply for The Farm
1) this online application
2) a paper copy (found at the office of the students home school)
3) a video submission answering applicants' responses to questions
4) email one of the teachers (Mark Turner maturner@rockyview.ab.ca) to arrange a face to face interview.
