How to Enroll with WISDOM
WISDOM exists to support traditional (parent-directed) home schooling. Your family decides what is taught, how it is taught and when it is taught.
To enroll for the 2018 - 2019 school year:
- please submit a Home Education Notification Form for each child
- submit a copy of your child's birth certificate (or passport). Without a valid form of ID, funding is not available. Upload via encrypted sender.
- Create an Education Program Plan for each child. This is your most important document, as it defines your home education program and assures your authority. In order to give us time to review, suggest additions, and approve your plan, please provide it before the end of August.
- Refunds (for funded students) come via direct deposit for any reimbursement refund. Please fill out an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Application and submit it with a VOID Cheque or a bank account verification letter.
Once we have received your notification we will contact you to let them know it has arrived.
A note on deadlines: The AB Ed deadline for the school to complete enrolments for funded students is the last business day of September.

Open House Events
Come learn about home schooling and about how WISDOM can help your family achieve your unique goals. Our Spring Open Houses and Information Sessions are open to the public. Some events include socials for the whole family, while others are adult-only information sessions.
These "Share WISDOM" events are going on all over Alberta right now. The events in Grande Prairie, High Level, La Crete and Westlock were great successes, but there are still more coming up! You're welcome to join us at one or more events, too. For most events, we ask that you RSVP so we can prepare.

See you at AHEA
If the AHEA Convention is on your schedule, you're in for a wonderful weekend filled with excellent sessions and opportunities to meet and visit with like-minded individuals.
The exhibitor hall can also be really exciting - or overwhelming, depending on how you look at it. I always recommend that families resist the urge to 'buy all the things'... it's tempting to see the shiny new curriculum and ditch something that is working quite well. On the other hand, there are so many great finds there, and educational extras galore....
