The Louis Riel School Division, in partnership with Manitoba Education, is offering synchronous online courses through its École Apprendre-chez-soi (ÉACS) for Grade 9-12 students. ÉACS is an accredited online high school within the Louis Riel School Division that is open to all students who qualify for high school in the province. This includes students currently enrolled in a high school who are seeking extra credits, students who are being home schooled, and students who cannot participate in school for personal or medical reasons. The school offers a range of core and option courses to Grade 9-12 French Immersion students, as well as French Communication and Culture courses for English program students. To promote second-language development, the school employs a synchronous (real-time) teaching approach.
Students currently enrolled in a Manitoba high school who wish to register for courses in this program must do so through their home school. The registration fee is $300 per course.
Students registered with ÉACS will be supported by specific teachers assigned to each course through Microsoft Teams software. Instruction will typically be provided through real-time, online teacher instruction with all students registered in the class, but pre-recorded videos, printable materials, and other resources will also be used to support learning. Students can expect instruction to be a combination of individual, small group and whole class lessons.

When students register for courses, they will be assigned an LRSD student number and an LRSD email address. This is to ensure that all students, regardless of where they come from, have access to all resources available to students in LRSD , including Teams channels, parent communication, and online resources. Once the initial registration is completed below and submitted, an email will be sent to the student's home school contact identified on the form with further information about completing the registration process. Please contact the Louis Riel School Division if you have any questions about attending École Apprendre-chez-soi.
Students interested in registering for ÉACS courses must speak with a member of their current school's student services staff, such as a school counselor or school administrator before registering. The school counselor or administrator must submit the information below on behalf of the student in order to begin the registration process. Upon receipt of this information, an email will be sent back to the school contact person with further instructions in order to complete the registration. Homeschool registrants are required to follow the links in the registration form to ensure that all of the necessary steps have been taken before registering.
