The Grove Blended Program


The Grove’s Blended Learning Program helps learners find success through personalized programming, while enjoying flexibility and the opportunity to socially interact, without the restrictions of a typical school day.

Nature Collective (formerly known as Swallowtail)

The Nature Collective (formerly known as Swallowtail) program helps inquisitive learners connect with the natural world around them while exploring their interests. They get to do this without the structures of a school day so they can foster a genuine connection between teachers, children and the natural world.

Our Story Is Beyond Education

As a District we are always challenging ourselves to be even better for our xe’ xe’ smun’eem, our sacred children. We developed this Strategic Plan through extensive consultation with students, staff, parents, and community members. The commitment and enthusiasm shown in developing this plan has demonstrated how deeply passionate our community is about the education and well-being of our children, our youth, and our community.

In the Cowichan School District, we believe...

  • All students can learn

  • In supporting the whole child

  • Learning experiences should be engaging, purposeful and reflective of voice and choice

  • In using strength-based approaches

  • In the importance of Indigenous ways of knowing

  • Strength is found in diversity
