Freedom Thinkers Education school is Fort St. John’s newest Independent school. It offers personalized learning experiences that focus on teaching skills and processes through project based learning while still meeting or exceeding the BC educational requirements.

Freedom Thinkers Education Mission Statement

    

At Freedom Thinkers Education we strive to educate children to be responsible, respectful citizens through personalized and project-based learning. Our school values and fosters quality instruction and excellence, effective communication skills, and a strong sense of social responsibility. We strive to develop proficiencies in personal achievement, compassion, curiosity, creative and critical thinking and problem solving. We believe that children learn best by “doing” and that all children can, and will learn. We also believe that children should be taught "how to think" rather than "what to think" to successfully adapt to an ever-changing society.
