Co-Operative Education Program

What is Co-Operative Education?
Co-Op us an alternative method of learning where students earn credits toward a graduation diploma for learning achieved in a work setting. Credits earned in the work setting must be related to an in-school course program taken at Grade 11 or 12 within the preceding twelve months.
2-Credit Package?
This 2-credit out-of-school package will allow students to attend for two classes a day and work on out-of-school credits for the other half day. This can happen when the student has a placement within easy traveling distance of the school and home. This program will most likely appeal to students who are looking at university and would like experience in careers such as law, accounting, and business management.
