The Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP) is comprised of 22 French-language schools in Nova Scotia and has been providing virtual learning opportunities to students since 2012. The Virtual School makes it possible to provide more course choices to CSAP students in grades 11 and 12. Students at the Virtual School set their own academic path and progress independently through the course content. Teachers periodically collect evidence of learning through triangulation to ensure that course objectives are accomplished. This article examines the thinking behind the teaching and learning practices leveraged at the CSAP Virtual School.
