Students must have completed Grade 8. If
repeating, they may have 1 or 2 grade 8 subjects near completion and are
between 14 – 16 years of age. They must be at grade 5 or 6 level
minimum in Math and English determined by a preliminary academic test. The West Alternative Program is
designed for students who need additional social/emotional, academic and/or beahaviour support in order to be successful in their future academic programming.
At the West Program students can complete
grades 9 and 10. Student progress is managed through the Individualized
Education Plan (IEP) process which involves the student, the
parent/guardian and program staff. The core academic courses are adapted
to meet the student’s needs. In addition to providing educational and
recreational programming, the program staff is dedicated to working
individually with students to focus on their social and emotional 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.
