We would like to acknowledge that our schools are on unceded Algonquin Territory, and thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us on their land.

Principal's Message

The main goal of Frederick Banting Secondary Alternate Program is to provide an alternate form of attaining secondary school credits. Students come to Frederick Banting for many different reasons including needing high school completion, academic upgrading, flexible scheduling, or needing a change from the traditional high school model. We graduate over 60 students annually with many going on to apprenticeships, college or university.

Our program is designed to allow for a flexible style of education, yet provides a structure that ensures success for most students who prefer an alternate learning environment.

What Our Students Say About Banting:

"My peers and I are like family. We all truly care about each other and help each other out. Here, teachers truly want you to succeed and are always making sure you have the confidence and support to do so."

"The freedom of this school helps show people the value of time - when you're given the freedom to make your own choices, you quickly realize the world won't wait for you."

"My experience here at Banting has been amazing. I came to the school as a child with no direction or care in the world. I will be leaving a man with a purpose and reason."

"This school is nothing but helpful and encouraging for students. The teachers truly care about the students and take time to focus on our inpidual learning style."

"We're like a big family, and when there are issues we work it out together. And by 'we' I mean students AND staff."

"I feel safe at all times [at Banting] and treat it as my second home."

"I like that no matter who you are you feel like you're accepted and can be yourself. It is a very motivating school and creates an amazing environment for the students."

Our Staff
