Christian educators and supporters from across the province of Ontario are collaborating to create a dynamic new resource for students, teachers, schools, parents and administrators.
Nimbus provides a wide range of online educational solutions from a Christian worldview. With the assistance of Christian educators from across the country, including Canada’s largest online Christian school, Nimbus will develop and distribute curriculum, courses, resources and other e-learning tools to anyone learning or working in Christian education in Ontario, including students currently enrolled in a Christian school, teachers, parents, homeschoolers and more.
Its founders are dedicated to making Nimbus as inclusive, encompassing and wide-ranging as possible, while being faithful to a Christian worldview. Its vision is to impact as many students as possible – enabling excellent, dynamic, creative, collaborative, differentiated and godly learning to happen anywhere around the globe.
The online educational tools being developed and distributed are meant to support and enhance the learning that occurs in traditional classrooms even as those classrooms adapt to the changing opportunities of 21st century learning. Nimbus will also allow Christian educators to reach students outside the walls of bricks-and-mortar schools – offering accredited Ontario education to students anywhere on earth.
Nimbus was founded in January 2012. It is a non-profit charitable organization, incorporated in the province of Ontario.
By establishing itself as a collaborative venture, Nimbus is able to harness the creative potential of many Christian educators and schools, enabling stewardly use of time and resources. Nimbus allows Christian educators, administrators and parents to do more together than they can do on their own.
At the same time, Nimbus recognizes that there are different emphases in Christian expression and practice, and it seeks to enable schools, teachers and parents to tailor the online tools to meet the needs of individual learners and their teachers.
In September of 2018 Nimbus began operating a private online school. Nimbus Christian Education has been assigned a BSID number by the Ministry and is listed as a private school on the Ministry website. It is operating under the number 884643. The school is in the process of obtaining the authority to grant credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
