Tupper Alternative Program (TAP) has been
created to maximize opportunity for successes in academic and personal
growth for grade 8 and 9 students. TAP is located within Sir Charles
Tupper Secondary School and allows for the immersion of students into
the Tupper school culture. Students have access to team sports, clubs,
resources, and active support and guidance of the school administration.
Students are taught all academic subjects by the Tupper Alternate
teacher and may be integrated in the school for some of their elective
courses. In addition to providing educational programming, the program
staff is dedicated to working individually with students to focus on
their social and emotional needs.

Tupper Alternate is designed primarily for students who have had some
difficulty in their regular classroom situation and require a more
supportive transition from elementary to secondary school. These
students are often in need of a smaller class setting and require
moderate behavioural and/or social and emotional support.
The goal is for students to successfully complete grade 9 and transition into an educational setting that will provide continuity and support moving forward.
Adaptations are made where necessary to meet the needs of the students. Student progress is managed through an Individualized Education Plan
(IEP). After completing grade 9, students will return to their
neighbourhood school or be recommended to another district alternative
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.
