Streetfront is an active alternative
program located on the northwest corner of the Britannia Secondary
School site. There is a strong physical aspect to the curriculum: running three times a week, regular gym sessions, swimming and weight
training, along with hiking, camping, canoeing, and Nordic skiing. Students must be willing and able to fully participate in all
activities. Streetfront offers core academics (Social Studies, English,
Math, Science, and Planning 10) with carefully monitored assignments
and attendance. Attendance and work completion are crucial to a
student’s success at Streetfront.

The Streetfront Program is designed for
Grade 8 (repeating), Grade 9 and Grade 10 students who are capable of
age appropriate grade level work, but who have had challenges finding success in a regular school setting for a myriad of reasons. Students must be interested in physical activity and
willing to participate in all activities.
At Streetfront students can complete
grades 8 - 10. Student progress is managed through the Individualized
Education Plan (IEP) process which involves the student, the
parent/caregivers, and program staff. Adaptations are made where
necessary to meet the needs of the students. In addition to providing
educational and recreational programming, the staff is dedicated to
working with students to provide social and emotional support. Through
growth in self-confidence, peer relations and academic achievement,
students transition from Grade 10 back to a mainstream secondary school
or proceed to a senior alternative program to complete their graduation
Intake is continuous as space becomes available. Please complete the application form and attach all required documentation.
All referrals are reviewed to determine program suitability relative to individual student needs. Successful applicants will be contacted by the Youth and Family Worker to arrange an intake interview with the student and their parent/guardian.
A probationary two week trial period is
recommended prior to students being formally accepted and transferred
from their home school.
