"FVDES provides engaging and varied distance learning experiences based upon the individual needs of the learner."
Founded in 1990, Fraser Valley Distance Education School is one of the largest schools in a provincial consortium of nine distance education schools located throughout British Columbia. FVDES has it roots in the traditional, print-based correspondence distance education. It was also one of the first schools to provide online learning in the province via the New Directions in Distance Education (NDDL), and later the CoNNect program. Since that time, we have continued to support all aspects of course delivery and now have over 4000 learners of all ages.
Since our inception, FVDES has always strived to address the changing needs of learners. We offer an unsurpassed program of print and online course offerings and we are continuing to update existing ones and create new courses each year. One of our newest programs is called IMAGINE. This blended program creates a unique learning environment for Gr. 8-9 students that want a blend of online/face-to-face learning. Students come in three days a week for four hours to recieve face-to-face teaching and support with their online courses. The growing demand for a more personalized, blended educational experience is what the 21st century learner is looking for.
