2. Bishop Carroll High School School

Bishop Carroll High School is part of the Calgary Catholic School District in Alberta, Canada and offers a unique program that allows students to work at their own pace in an individual environment. This 'freedom to succeed' is part of the constructivist model of student-centred learning advocated by member schools of the CCSDL (Canadian Council on Self Directed Learning). Students receive module packages from certain resource rooms and start to work on these packages. The students have a teacher or a TA (teacher advisor) to look after them and keep them on track in weekly individual meetings. This program is available for students who are in Grade 10, 11 or 12. Bishop Carroll is home to the Bishop Carroll Cardinals. The school is named after Bishop Francis Patrick Carroll, the Bishop of Calgary from 1935-1966. The school welcomes people who are not Roman Catholic.

Wikipedia article

The Progressive Conservative Party of Canada was a Canadian federal political party with a centre-right stance on economic issues and, after the 1970s, a centrist stance on social issues. The party began as the Conservative Party in 1867, becoming Canada's first governing party under Sir John A. Macdonald, and for years was either the governing party or the largest opposition party. The party changed its name to the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada in late 1942. In 2003, the party membership voted to dissolve the party and join the new Conservative Party of Canada being formed with the members of the Canadian Alliance. One member of the Senate of Canada who opposed the merger now sits as an "Independent Progressive Conservative". The conservative parties in most Canadian provinces still use the Progressive Conservative name. Some PC Party members formed the new Progressive Canadian Party, which has attracted only marginal support.
