AFIA Distance Learning Resources

AFIA has always provided many online learning and support materials for students to access 24/7, and this commitment to our families will continue during this uncertain time. This page will be a resource for students of all grade levels to receive AFIA support and continue learning at home. As we continue monitoring the situation, we will update this page with further guidance regarding both online and offline learning opportunities. The head of school and facilitators will be in direct contact with families via the email addresses provided to AFIA.

Inquiry: Explore Your World

While students are home, we will be taking advantage of the strengths of AFIA’s inquiry learning model. Rather than merely sending worksheets home, we will be encouraging all students to explore their world with guiding questions that help them unpack relevant issues via genuine inquiry learning.

The resources below open a world of opportunities for AFIA students to explore and research topics meaningful to them:
