U-Connect Mission’s Statement

A Blended Learning Environment
Located in Langley, BC, U-Connect offers a unique, blended, site-based/home learning environment for students. Students from Kindergarten through Grade 12 can engage in a learning community that follows the Ministry of Education outcomes while respecting the individual learning style and interests of each student.
Programs at U-Connect are led by a creative and energetic staff of BCTF certified teachers. Learning plans are created in meetings between the teacher, parents and students in September outlining work to be completed through the term. Parents and students also meet with teachers during each reporting period to discuss progress and set directions for the following term.
The teachers at U-Connect are extremely approachable and available to meet face to face by appointment, by phone or e-mail. A supportive and engaging environment is created by each teacher for students and parents.
The student learning plan is what directs the child’s education in any give term or year. U-Connect teachers work with parents to develop these plans and offer support to help families work through the plan.
