Stephen Baker, B.Sc., B.Ed., OCT.

Stephen Baker is the founder and principal of Virtual High School (VHS) and Virtual Elementary School (VES). Mr. Baker’s passion for online education began in 1995, with the idea of offering fully online and accessible courses to high school students. This passion comes from his experiences teaching in alternative education settings where he witnessed the positive effect of a self-paced, asynchronous learning model on student achievement.

Mr. Baker was born in Grand Falls, Newfoundland. He taught for 13 years in Wesleyville, Newfoundland before moving to Ontario to teach in 1987. In his free time, Mr. Baker enjoys spending time with his family, Association Croquet, stamping, and dining on cod tongues, a traditional Newfoundland food.
