Archbishop Jordan Catholic High 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
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 November 12 2019 with shipment following within a week after the
closing date of November 29 2019. After this date the educational discounts will not be
available. For SOLARO digital orders, activation will be immediate upon emailed
