Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame SCHOOL is pleased to partner with Castle Rock Research to provide educational resources to help support student achievement.
Over the last 20 years, hundreds of thousands of students in Alberta have used THE KEY Study Guides and SNAP Workbooks produced by Castle Rock Research as part of their studies. We have recently been introduced to a digital resource from Castle Rock called SOLARO (Student Oriented Learning, Assessment, and Reporting Online). We find that SOLARO is a comprehensive digital study guide that provides all the benefits and features of THE KEY along with the added value of more robust content and many more practice questions. The same year-end tests from THE KEY are now available in the SOLARO courses for Mathematics, English Language Arts, Sciences, and Social Studies. You get 10 subject of any grade for 1 year View SOLARO Video
While Castle Rock will continue to support and produce THE KEY and SNAP, the focus moving forward will be on the many exciting benefits of SOLARO. We are working with Castle Rock to implement a new ordering procedure that will allow parents to order digital and print products online and still receive a preferred education discount (approx. 50%). To help reduce shipping charges, orders will be individually packaged, aggregated and shipped to the school for pick up by each student. Orders can be placed starting February 1, 2021 ending February 19, 2021 with shipment following within a week after the closing date . After this date the educational discounts will not be available. For SOLARO digital orders, activation will be immediate upon emailed confirmation.
