Find the Best Version of You

"Find the best version of you"

Flexible schedules, workplace opportunities, smaller classes and self-paced learning are some of the reasons students may choose to attend one of our five schools. The Alternate Program is primarily an independent learning environment where students complete one credit at a time and at their own pace. Students work collaboratively with their teachers to create individualized timelines and develop their learning strategies. In addition, the program offers students the opportunity to learn experientially through a variety of academic programs such as cooperative education, leadership, music, art, gardening, food & nutrition, and housebuilding.

Most students entering an Alternate Program will start by participating in the intensive five week "Lifeskills" course. This course focuses on helping students understand themselves, their relationships, and their responsibilities through a range of activities emphasizing students' social-emotional development and well-being.

The Alternate program offers the same credits as a traditional program and students graduate with either an OSSD (Ontario Secondary School Diploma) or an OSSC (Ontario Secondary School Certificate). Each year graduates from the Alternate Program go on to attend college and university while others choose to pursue apprenticeships or head into the world of work.
