Personalised Alternative Education Department

Personalised Alternative Education is a holistic approach to student learning. Our programmes marry flexible classroom instruction with real-world, experiential learning.  All programmes have a lead teacher to provide instruction, guidance and support.


Our programmes includes:

TEAM:  Training, Experience, Academics and Motivation
This is a self-contained programme where students can earn four credits each semester.  The programme has a landscape construction focus. During the spring and fall, students attend class period one and work in a real world work environment under teacher direction for the rest of the day.  Students will develop technical skills in landscape construction as well gain valuable work experience.  Further students will in core credits in English, Math, Science and Healthy Active Living.

Our community partners include Bruce's Mill, Lake St. George Outdoor Education Field Centre, and Camp Robinhood.  

During the winter months students attend classes all day in the high school.

ALEP: Alternative Learning Experience Programme
This is a four credit, semester based programme and is generally geared toward senior students. ALEP allows students to earn one credit in English and/or Math by attending class for one full day per week (instead of one period per day). Students will also be working in a desired field and earn credit for related "Community Based Education" courses.

Additionally, students may want to take advantage of   OYAP (Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programme).  If you are working in a trade and want to pursue it as a career, speak to your ALEP teacher.

Students will need to submit a Weekly Log and Evaluation to their teacher which has been verified by the employer.
