Bishop Carroll High School is part of the Calgary Catholic School District in Alberta, Canada, and offers a unique program that allows students to work at their own pace in an individual environment. This "freedom to succeed" is part of the constructivist model of student-centred learning advocated by member schools of the CCSDL (Canadian Council on Self Directed Learning). Students receive module packages from certain resource rooms and start to work on these packages. The students have a teacher or a TA (teacher advisor) to look after them and keep them on track in individual meetings. Depending on their level of motivation, students meet with their TA once a week to twice a month. This program is available for students who are in Grades 10 thru 12.
