Who is the Inquiry Hub for?

The Inquiry Hub is for all types of learners who share a passion for knowing and investigation and have an interest in using technology to seek answers to their questions. The Inquiry Hub will appeal to families who are seeking a smaller, cooperative learning environment where students can focus on their interests individually and in small teams – those who:

  • Are motivated learners that have some self-regulation skills
  • Can work independently during unstructured class time
  • Want a chance to apply their learning in a practical way
  • Are interested in research and learning with technology
  • Find structured classes do not meet their learning needs
  • Are interested in learning through social networks
  • Desire to work on projects which make a difference

The Inquiry Hub offers the following benefits for students:

  • Instruction which blends classroom and online experiences in a hybrid model
  • A student-driven inquiry approach to learning
  • Significant reduction of formally structured class time and emphasis on a learning commons where students do daily group project work and individual, computer-based learning
  • Class environments which group students around interests and project focus rather than grade levels
  • Parents and community as active learning partners
  • Extensive use of peer mentorship in cross-grade project work
  • Core, inquiry-based program offerings which are extended through the extensive list of COL online courses
