AIAO provides rich learning opportunities that are rooted in place and nature based educational practices. We are often learning on and from the land and work with local Indigenous groups to authentically weave Indigenous ways of being and knowing into our program.
We collaborate with various business and mentors throughout the Okanagan to engage our students in a variety of experiential learning opportunities. We acknowledge that learning and understanding occur in many ways, not just within the classroom, and incorporate this philosophy into our way of learning.
AIAO is a place for students to find their interests, explore their passions, and become curious about learning. Students are able to learn core courses (numeracy, literacy, etc.) cross-curricularly and through avenues of interest. AIAO uses the BC curriculum and our program is deeply rooted in the core competencies. We want students to leave our program being prepared to take on whatever life brings their way. All AIAO students have the opportunity to graduate from our program with a BC Dogwood Diploma.
