Personalized Alternative Education Department

We offer a Personalized Alternative Education (PAE) program that meets the needs of a variety of students who wish to complete compulsory and some elective credits from grade 9 through grade 12 in a non-traditional or alternative learning environment.

Students can work on a variety of courses, and/or engage in Community Based Education (SAL). The PAE program offers a smaller class size, rolling admissions, a customized work pace atmosphere and the stability of one classroom.

The courses are primarily at the Essential level, however many courses are also offered at the Applied level. The roster of courses is flexible and growing on an ongoing basis.

Supervised Alternative Learning, or SAL, combines class instruction with community-based work or volunteerism. If the student is ready to commit to this program then they could earn an elective credit for every 110 hours spent in work or volunteering.

Students who would like to apply for the Personalized Alternative Education program please speak with our school's Vice-Principal.  Please note, due to the smaller class size, enrollment may be limited.
