The Vinery Program provides a safe,
supportive and nurturing educational environment to students who are emotionally fragile and/or who have not experienced success in a mainstream school setting. The program staff is dedicated to working
individually with students to focus on their emotional, social and
academic needs. Students are offered an opportunity to study an
individualized, self-paced educational program. In addition to the core
academic subjects the Vinery Program offers various group activities
including a Personal Awareness Program, an Arts and Community Program,
and a Fitness Program.

The Vinery Program is designed primarily
for students who are between the ages of 13-16 (grades 8 to 10) and who
are at-risk of dropping out of school or who have already dropped out.
At the Vinery students can complete grades
8 and 9 in the core subject areas. Student progress is managed
through the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process which involves
the student, the parent/guardian and program staff. Adaptations are made
where necessary to meet the needs of the students. In addition to
providing educational and recreational programming, the program staff is
dedicated to working individually with students to focus on their
emotional, social and academic needs. Upon completion of the Vinery
Program, students are encouraged to continue their education in a
setting most suited to their individual needs.
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.
