Home Education at Aurora
Home education, sometimes referred to as home schooling or home-based learning, is an option available to all Yukon students. It is a way for students to learn in their home and community with an approach that is adaptable and personalized.
Parents assume responsibility for their child's learning by selecting educational programs, methods and resources.
Yukon Education now coordinates home education through the Aurora Virtual School.
