We use a very reliable website to host our daily classes that allows our students and teachers to see and hear each other clearly. Students are able to navigate through the Immaculata Virtual Hallway easily to find their teacher’s virtual classrooms to join into classes.
Everyday, students attend the same classes they would regularly attend, with the same teachers and CEA’s present for all class timeslots. Online learning includes a daily lesson or lecture with time to complete assigned work. Teachers remain in the virtual classroom to assist with the homework and/or provide further directions. Teachers also host daily office hours for one hour after the virtual day is over to provide additional support to students.
Our teachers have always cared about the well being of our students and being online is no different. Teachers monitor attendance and missing assignments and check in with students as required to ensure that any challenges are addressed. Parents are kept up to date with regular emails from teachers regarding expectations and concerns.
Students with specific learning needs have their same CEA with them in their virtual classes for each meeting. CEA’s also offer extra meeting hours to work one-on-one or in small groups with their students.
As a school, we host different online theme days to foster our sense of community and to lighten the mood for everyone. Teachers and students have worn their green & gold, shown up with crazy hair and introduced their pets to the class.

Immaculata is our local regional Catholic high school serving Kelowna and its surrounding area. Immaculata was first established in 1960 and shared its campus with St. Joseph school. In 1995, the “new” Immaculata was opened on the 1493 KLO Road site and currently serves over 250 students from grades 8-12. The fully modern facility supports students in all their academic, athletic and spiritual endeavors.
Following the Roman Catholic tradition, Immaculata aspires to a Catholic atmosphere that is centered in the Gospel Message of Love. This Catholic atmosphere; inspires a deeper understanding of our Catholic heritage, instills a spirit of service, respects the dignity of the individual, and promotes involvement in parish life. Following our school motto, “A family that fosters excellence”, we guide and foster our students intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially.
