Why Teach at Kleos Open Learning?
Kleos Open Learning is a group 1 Independent Distance Learning School that is fully certified by the BC Ministry of Education. As a leader in personalized learning and special education, we develop quality academic programming for grades K – 12.
Our Mission, Vision and Values
When translated, Kleos means “What others hear about you.” It is a person’s story. Many students with unique and special learning needs have a story forced on them by others simply because they do not fit neatly into preconceived learning boxes – we work to allow each student to write their own story and have their voice heard. At Kleos Open Learning we believe each student is one-of-a-kind, not one of many. Kleos Open Learning has a strong focus on supporting families and students. We have an unwavering belief in our students, leading and guiding them on their own journey through their school career. These core beliefs shape our learning community and philosophy of education.
Draw For Employees
Our focus and passion for Special Education, and seeing students thrive in a non-traditional learning environment is rewarding within itself. Our administration team, teachers, education support staff and our community and learning centre partners are passionate professionals who work as a seamless team to provide learning opportunities for each student that meet their unique needs. You are an important part of this team and have a seat at the table.

We strive to foster strong relationships with all employees, since most of our employees work remotely we feel it is imperative they know they are fully supported by the admin team, and their peers.

We offer an opportunity for teachers looking to work closely with like-minded professionals all striving towards the same goal of student success and happiness. Our school has a passion for the less traditional way of learning and wanting to be part of something bigger than just educating.
