"My time at Frontier College has left a lasting impact on me that I think will only keep revealing itself over time. I have seen firsthand here the incredible impact that intentionally accessible and dignified spaces can have on someone’s learning. Before beginning my placement in the Independent Studies program, I had very little understanding on the ways in which adult education can act as a tool to greater independence, confidence and happiness. Spending 8 months with our learners has reinvigorated my love of learning and reminded me of the ways in which education can be exciting, dynamic and individualized. I think this program really helps break down the barriers that folks with disabilities often face in other spaces, and invites them to feel empowered in their journey. Going beyond mandated expectations, the relationships between tutors and students are ones that centre around mutual trust, hard work and patience. I have seen many programs who meet quotas, but the IS program is the first I’ve seen that focuses on meeting people exactly where they’re at.”
